Yes that would be great for your usage but you should know it is pretty expensive. If you or someone you know could build one for you, you could probably save some cash. Here is a build made of better quality parts and with much better cooling for less cash:

i5-2500k
8GB Corsair Vengeance LP
ASRock Z68 Extreme3
2 x Powercolor HD 6970
2 x Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
Crucial M4 128GB
Seasonic 850W Silver
Coolermaster HAF 922
Noctua NH-D14
DVD Burner
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

Total $1859.75 before shipping

That leaves you $300 to get an awesome headset, mouse and keyboard. Not to mention the better cooling and higher quality parts.

EDIT: Prices from Newegg
