My System Specs

Default

I'm not sure if that video card will offer any benefit over the built-in Intel HD graphics. I don't think it's going to make a huge difference. You'll need something a bit higher end if you want to play games.

I would also go with a "Blue" or "Black" Western Digital hard drive, as the "Green" models are slower and not really recommend to use for anything besides storing data. I wouldn't run Windows off of it.

Actually, for your intended usage, you might be better off with an AMD setup instead based around an AMD A8 or A10 CPU, such as:
AMD A8-5600K APU Quad Core Processor Socket FM2 3.2GHZ 4MB 100W Retail Box
ASUS F2A85-M/CSM mATX FM2 85X FCH DDR3 2PCI-E16 1PCI-E1 1PCI SATA3 DVI HDMI USB3.0 Motherboard - DirectCanada
