Actually the game requires a Solid State HD. So, no.

A solid state drive isn't necessary at all. Not to say there wouldn't be a performance gain, but the same could be said about running multiple video cards and 16 gigs of RAM.

While solid state drives are nice they are not needed for the game to work the system you are getting is fine though I would suggest bumping the video card up a notch or two with more ram on it as well.
