If you need windows, I'd save a bit more money ($50 more, assuming you have $700 atm), because cheaping out on something of these will degrade performance a lot.
It will let you play most games on ultra, except Battlefield 3, which will run great on high resolution. I'm again assuming you're running 1920x1080 resolution. If you're running smaller, you'll get better performance.
