Is this a good gaming rig?


A friend is helping me build a gaming computer, I don't know tons about them, but I know enough to be able to overclock and the like (what I intend to do with this actually) But this is a bit above what I know. So Is this a good rig for gaming? (apologies if my grammar is a tad off, I'm native German so English is not my first language.)

Altogether it will cost me about $3010.

He assures me this would be able to play Battlefield 3 on dual monitors, or Skyrim with 150+ Graphics Mods installed.

What do the good people of Yahoo Answers think?

It is definitely something i wish I could afford...The only problem I see here is that the power supply might not be enough for both those video cards. The 680 needs at least 550w and the 640 needs at 350w so, you need a better power supply for it. Other than that..it's a really good computer with tons of stuff.
