P.C. suggestions???

I've been shopping around for a new p.c. to run balance with reason 6.5, I'm not much of a tech guy so maybe I could get some helpful opinions. I found this for $869., if anyone could tell me why I shouldn't get this or should or if I could get something better in this price range I would really appreciate it, thanks.

Here are the specs:
