Default New computer....building

My friend's brother offered to build me a computer that can run games like Dragon Age 2 and games like that as well as run photoshop smoothly:

1,077$ final price

800watts power supply
nVidia 560 Ti graphics card
Intel Core i7-870 cpu
8GB DDR3 ram
Windows 7
MSI motherboard

I'm not very good at computers but is this good? is it too much hardware for what I want to use the computer for? is the pricing good?

thank you for your input

Everything looks good from a general perspective. The 8GB DDR3 RAM may be overkill as 4GB would be enough. I ask that you find the name of the power supply, the memory and of the MSI motherboard so we can give you a more detailed review.

This set-up should run everything that you throw at it fine, unless you plan on trying to max out Crysis 2, then that might require some more firepower. We can't comment on the pricing without knowing what I asked for above.
