Everything looks ok apart from that graphics card.

You're going to want to replace your graphics card with something a little stronger.

I would recommend a Radeon HD 7770or an Nvidia GTX 560.

There is a wide gap in prices and performance for graphics cards, if you could give us a budget on how much you want the computer to cost or tell us how much you are willing to spend on the graphics card and we could be more helpful.

good choice and if you can order from amazon Uk or pixmania.Gr like i do you can find 6850 or 6870 for dirt cheap and those can run almost any game at high/almost high settings even at 1080p ( my 6850 runs skyrim at 1440x900 all max settings 4xAA and rarely drops below 35-40fps )
