Will this spec run demanding games?

Hi to all! I'm relatively new here but I had a few questions regarding the specs of the desktop I will be buying in a few weeks time.

Currently the specs are as follows:

Motherboard: Not sure but likely an X58 motherboard Graphics card/GPU: 2x 1GB Radeon HD 5870 CrossFire Processor: Intel Core i7 Extreme 980x 3.33GHz RAM: 12288mb 1333MHz Tri Channel memory Operating system: Windows 7 Home premium x64-bit (Licence only)

Monitor to run PC: 23" 3D compatible monitor with Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution.

I wanted to know whether this spec desktop will run games like BF3, Crysis 2, Shogun 2 or Starcraft 2 on ultra settings? Which games will struggle to cope with these specs? I want to run games like these on the highest possible settings so will I need a better CPU, GPU, RAM, etc? The desktop is pre-built meaning I cannot specify what specs I want and I'm getting it for a cheap price. I may over lock the CPU to 4ghz if possible.

Thanks very much!

Your system will run the games on high/ultra. The only problem is some games do not like Crossfire, but you need to google your games to check. I would definitely get the PC.
