I wouldn't call it killer and it will show it's limitations in new games. Toss the 5gb hard drive away too. What CPU and power supply are you using? Those are 2 critical choices to make. If you haven't already purchased the cideo card then go with something DX10, even if it performs slightly less now because games are going to prefer cards that are shader heavy in the coming months.

No not killer but still very decent. 7900GT's aren't anything to cough at. I really wouldn't rush towards a directx10 card just cause it's DX10....there's no games that use it yet. I only have one because i HAD a 7900GT, I really hate replacing a videcard that dies prematurely with the exact same one so i did a slight upgrade. If your card is a 7900GT pre-overclocked card from eVga...run away. I won't buy another pre-overclocked/superclocked card again.

That 5gb drive is probably slowing down your 40gb. Is the 5gb an ATA-66?
