Wow, the tower is awesome with the blue light. (Not very bill -friendly, but well)
How much memory does the Graphic Card has got? Doesn't look much like a professional card.

I have a Radeon 4850 Graphics Card that I bought for $120 and it has 1GB of memory on it

2.4ghz triple core CPU, 4gb ddr2 ram (2x 2gb dual channel), geforce
9600gt, CD/DVD burner/reader.

The rig you describe is overpriced by almost $200. Build your own, you can pick some better parts and spend the same amount. Not only that, it's getting more and more ridiculously easy to build systems now.

For ~$480 I recently built a quadcore, 4GB RAM, decent gaming kit.

My parts:
AMD Athlon II x4 overclocked to 3.2GHz
4GB, Wintec AMPx 2x2GB DDR2 800 kit running at 1006MHz
Asus AM2+ motherboard (cant remember model at the moment)
500GB WD Caviar Black SATA
Unbranded IDE cd/dvd burner (dirt cheap, works like a champ)
Sparkle GTS 250 1GB (good manufacturer with a terrible choice for a name, performs as well as XFX and BFG for $30 cheaper) over clocked a bit
Saitek Cyborg keyboard
Gigabyte GM-M6800 mouse ($20 if you go to newegg, best feeling mouse I ever bought, better than my old Logitech MX518 costing twice as much)
Cooler Master Elite mini tower
Ubuntu 9.10 x64 (plays 95% of my games in Wine), Open Solaris (work), Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (from TPB, beats spending $300 on an OS I use for only 3 games)

The only thing I didn't buy was a monitor, I'm still using my 1080p Dell monitor for high-def gaming and media creation (modeling and CAD). Home built FTW!!

custom builds take the piss and can go horribly wrong but if your sure

Lol.... I hope you enjoy over paying for the name rather than spending
~$1000 less on a system that will eat anything thrown at it..

Custom built is the way to go. It's cheaper, you have more options, and
is generally a lot more fun and fulfilling to build. And if you can't
afford all the parts right away, buy them in steps. Warranties are
generally better on custom systems, since each part has it's own
separate warranty, ranging from 3 years to limited lifetime, most
factory systems warranty for a max of 1 year for "free", and requiring
you to pay more for a warranty of up to 3 years if you decide you want
to pay more for it.
