Default Just brought a new gaming desktop, did i buy the right stuff?

I had a tight budget ($1500AUD) and went a little over, but heres what i got, with mostly gaming in mind.

Intel E8400 3Ghz Core 2 Duo
4GBDDR2 Memory
2xSeagate SATA 500GB HDD's
22x DVD re-writer
650watt power supply
gaming PC tower (improved airflow)
23" Samsung Screen
Logitech 5.1 surround.

Diablo 3 and GTA 4 are the games i had in mind when buying this. Reckon it'll go alright?

You forgot to put the Graphics card spec of your PC.

Since your Processor, RAM and HDD (kinda) is decent, the only thing that matters, and matters the most is the GPU.

If your GPU is HD 4800+ or up, and GTX 260 and up I'd say you'll be alright.

That's a pretty good GPU.
You are all set for high-performance gaming for at least 2 years, and regular gaming (mid-to-low end spec games) for a really long time.

Congratz.

Sounds a little over the top AND overkill, but seems a little over priced unless you have a $150 graphics card...
