Ummmm, Not bad dude. Try a benchmarking program. Like 3DMark 06 or maybe the 11 would be good. You can also try running Performance Test 7. My personal opinion, I dont think you will have low FPS on much of anything for quite a long time. Though it is possible that games that are not designed to run on more than one or two cores may not want to work correctly on your machine. Though if your not a moldy oldy gamer, I am pretty positive that your rig will be more than equipped for a good amount of time to come. Another thing, is your old system still in working condition? if so, benchmark that one as well and compare scores so you will know just how much more powerful your new machine is. I do that with every new build.
Hey, I am wondering, that SSD, how well does that score in the Windows 7 Experience Index?

6870 crossfire beats 5970 in all cases by a large margin. your new rig will handle all new games in Full HD just fine (high FPS) and by fine I mean everything at max + AA and all other advanced options . Though for how long, 6 month or 1 year or more...

Just overclock that 1055 to at least 3.7GHZ to get ride of any possible bottleneck.
