Help me choose I new desktop

With my 5+ year old desktop starting to go I'm looking for a new system.
Here is what I need it for:
Running VM's with Virtualization technology
light to moderate gaming
For the computer to last another 5+ years

Here's one I found on BestBuy :
HP - Pavilion Elite Desktop with AMD Phenom™ II Quad-Core Processor - HPE-130f

I assume that all Phenom quad cores have Virtualization extensions. The only minor issue that I have so far is the lack of open pci, pci-e ports.
Is it a good deal for around $950?

I'm also trying to hold out for a system with usb 3.0 ports but it looks like it may be awhile until they become standard for most systems.
