Yeah, everything looks ok. The graphics card you picked isn't that great, but that's ok if you're only getting it as a stopgap while you're waiting for the new cards to come out.

Don't get a 4870, there's new ATI radeon's coming out in a week. Might as well wait and get something far better. Not worth it buy last gen cards this close to the next. Wait till after if your deadset on a 4870, the price should drop a bit soon.
