I think you have a nicely spec.'d machine there. More than capable of the uses you say you want it for, very quick, quite future proof with the processor you have chosen. The graphics card is probably a bit better then you need if you are not into gaming, but who knows, you may be once you get your hands on this system.
I think you have a good deal for the price - enjoy!
