Default This comp good enough for gaming?

http://www.pcclub.com/systems_config...p&bomid=EN-VL1

I might be buying this computer here and I want to know if I should change any of the specs. Is this a reasonable price for this kind of computer? Im planning onto mostly play bf2 on this comp and maybe games like quake 4.

Dual video cards are unnecessary IMO. Get 1 6800GT or 1 7800GT. Anything else is just overkill and a waste of money.
