Default questions about a build

OK so I have the information on a build for a computer I am looking to put together. First time I'm trying to build one without a lot of assistance.

That is the current build. Plus a dvd drive and harddrive from previous computer.

My question is how does it look. Any issues foreseeable?


I would like to have the option 3 or 5 years down the road of upgrading by dropping a second processors(a copy of the one all ready there) and second graphics card (crossfirex style) into the computer.

I checked, and the power supply can handle the demand of the upgrades and the tower has the room for it, but is it doable? Would I need to buy a better/more advanced motherboard to allow this future upgrade?

Holy poo, nice motherboard ..

The only problem I see is the 650 watt PSU , I'd get a 1,000 watt, you was saying 3-5years and crossfire and a cpu upgrade.. you might want a bigger PSU to handle this..
