Like GhislainG said, what are your expectations? More over what is your tech level.
You could probably custom build a system that would out perform the one you listed for about the same price.

I did a quick newegg build and came up with this:
Asus p55d pro
G.Skill 1600 ddr3 Ripjaws
Hitachi 1t HD
OCZ modular 600w psu
Total was $635

throw in a $100 ebay 8800GTX, case and peripherals and your out the door for a little over $850

just my 2 cents...

What resolution will you be playing at? That setup is fine for the first two games. But you will barely pull 20 fps with on a high resolution with medium settings/high with the 5770.

If you go amd you can get a 5850 in there. That's what I did and it plays all games on max.
