Have you researched the video card as a good fit for your intended purposes?
A good game card is rarely ever a great workstation card.

As long as it's a proven video card you should be fine.
Looks like a solid setup and you're getting a crazy amount of computing power for $900 when you think about it.

my friend put 99% of it together and this thing flies! I have final cut pro, indesign, photoshop, lightroom, illustrator, safari, firefox, iphoto, and imovie running along with my music and it doesn't lag the slightest bit! I'm in love!
