The video cards are kinda old, but should be decent.

I'd want to do 3 drives in a RAID5.

I'm guessing the sound is going to be some garbage Realteck chipset, you might want to get a good SoundBlaster card.

And 6GBs? If that's triple channel then that's fine, if that's dual or quad you'll want 8. Look up your motherboard specs to see what it is.

 

Also, make sure you do NOT use the stock heat sink on that CPU. You might want to do something along the lines of an Antec Kuhler H2O 920.

...I'm not sure whether the two above me are being sarcastic or what but I have quite a bit less than you my friend and can still run some high end games on High Quality at 30 FPS. Soooo you should be pretty good unless your computer eplodes from all that power 0.o

The specs seem to be from a stock-built Alienware computer; if you haven't bought it yet, don't. You can actually build a very nice PC from scratch that will be infinitely more customizable that can include the newest components, and it's not nearly as hard as you might think.

 

If you /do/ buy a stock PC; check with the vendor to see if replacing things like heatsinks will void your warranty or not and look at other reviews for the system.
