I think that compared to the rest of the specs of the computer that the video card is a bit much because it will most likely get bottlenecked. I suggest saving a couple bucks and going with a lower tier video card and maybe saving a bit on the case. If you are lucky you might be able to bring it down to $600 and use the money you saved to switch your processor to an i5. It might cost a total of about $730 but the performance boost will be great for the money. Or take maestro0428's advice and get a better mobo so you can overclock the cpu.
