Bought a Aurora ALX for 1270 pounds ($2000)

Just got into PC Gaming, (Ex-Mac user) and I was considering attempting to build my own PC but I have no experience or knowledge so I didn't like the idea.

So for peace of mind, I went for the Dell Alienware so I could get warranty and a good system.

Here are the specs,

What do you think?

I'm planning on using 3 1920x1080 monitors to play WoW, GW2 and maybe BF3.

Would it run okay? Any tips/advice is much appreciated

For what the Alienware Aurora offers I think it's a good deal which is probably the first time I've thought that about any Alienware system.
This article is about using a GTX680 for multi-monitor use (and 3D) http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1887/1/
I think you'll enjoy playing on that rig
