My System Specs

Default

Everything looks good except for 3 things I'd recommend:

Hard drive: Seagates are not good at all (IMO) go with a WD Caviar.
SSD: I'd recommend a 240/256GB, unless you know you won't fill up the 128GB.
Graphics card: With running things in 1080p there will be a significant increase in performance (at least in terms of gaming) with 2GB VRAM.
There are minor performance increases elsewhere, but gaming would be a big difference.

And just IN CASE you don't know:
2 cards with 1GB VRAM = 1GB VRAM, 2 card swith 2GB = 2GB, etc. I run into a lot of people that think dual 1GB cards means they'll have 2GB, but that isn't true because the graphics are loaded separately by each card.
