Thinking about a PC upgrade

I am thinking it is time for an upgrade. WHY? Because I want to play Battlefield 3 in all it's glory. I can re-use my case (and cram these innards in another case for possibly other purposes). So, when all is said and done, I am looking at about $760.92 for parts. I would start with two new boot Hard Drives (SATA 6GB, 250GB 7200RPM), I have a nice 2TB data drive to plug in, an AMD Phenom II X4 p65 Black Edition 3.5GHz Quad-core processor, 8GB of DDR 3 Ram, a 80Plus Gold certified power supply, a Radeon HD 6950 Graphics card w/ 1GB ram, an ASRock motherboard with two PCI-Express x16 slots, SATA 6GB/s, USB 3.0, Firewire, Gigabit Lan, and eSATA, and a SATA Blu-Ray burner.

So...to pull the trigger or not...Thoughts?

Well, off to water aerobics for the evening.
