I also recommend you change out the hard drive for a 2TB model as these days 1TB can get filled up pretty quick. I know this is much (MUCH) more expensive than the Hitachi you linked but I recommend the WD Black 2TB: Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
I agree with switching the hard drives, And going with an Nvidia card... I would recommend the 570GTX or 580GTX, I have the 570GTX and it runs BF3 perfectly, And you can always SLI in the future with Nvidia if you really wanted too. Id also recommend the benq 120hz monitor if you're going to be buying one.
