Just building my first solo gaming multimedia rig. Wanted to have great performance with the option of upgrading. Just need some opinions on the compatibility of these components and if the power supply will hold up under heavy gaming load.
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T BE
MB: GIGABYTE GA-890FXA-UD5
RAM: CORSAIR DOMINATOR 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600Mhz
GPU: XFX HD-697A-CNFC Radeon HD 6970 2GB
HD for OS: Intel X25-M 2.5" 80GB SATA II MLC(SSD)
HD 2: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST31000528AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s
PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX850 V2 850W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified
Case: Corsair 700D
Thanks in advance for everyone's help, I really appreciate the feedback.

Hi, yeah even with overclocking and very heavy use i'd say that PSU would be fine and those parts look great. Probably not worth saying because you don't seem like you're on much of a budget but i think some of the cheaper Phenom II x6's are identical to that one except for clock speed so it might be worth checking them out because you could just overclock it. I'd double check that one first because i'm not 100% but it's worth a look.
In addition, I don't mind if the current power supply will only support the current and not support further upgrades of extra GPU's. I will just purchase a larger one at the required time. After selling some other laptops, and previous computers I have just limited myself to under $2000 as I think it would be excessive to go for more than that at the current point in time. So with that liquid cash to go around and some handy combo deals from newegg, that's why I put some more expensive parts into this build.
