Not bad. I would suggest getting the 8800GTS 512MB as it has the faster G92 core over the 640MB version.

I would suggest saving a bit of money and getting a dual core over a quad as you will much more of a benefit from putting the money into a better GPU. This: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115029 or this once the prices settle: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115037.
