Yes, those specs look pretty good for a gaming pc. You may want to upgrade to 8GB of memory though, just because it's so cheap lately.

Upgrade Ram if you have the moneys definitely.

The card, is a good mid range card, AnandTech - Bench - GPU11

Good buy. (without taking into consideration the mobo or PSU)
