everything is good except the videocard. For that game, it will be a bottleneck, and for higher end games such as BF3 and other hard to run games, the videocard will have you using the lowest possible settings.
For starcraft 2, you should be able to do close to high settings since it is not very GPU intensive but for many other modern games, you will be stuck on low settings and may still have lag.
this site is a good starting point when looking for a better videocard
PS the 6670 will run battlefield 3 on medium
Another thing to consider is that a low cost card may not be the best card for the money. For example the radeon 6770 is a bad deal compared to the radeon 6850 even though it offers good performance for it's price. The reason behind that is because there are many games that you will not be able to max out.

I agree that the graphics card is a little underpowered. But it depends on what you plan on doing with this computer.
I personally would also add another 4GB of RAM, and ensure I'm getting a 64-bit version of Windows. But that's just me, maybe. :-)
Oh. And why DVD and not Blu-Ray?
