Ok here is my build first off,

CPU: I5-2400 ( I will have very minimal OC, 3.99 tops)
Cooler: Corsair A50
Mobo: P8P67-M Pro
GPU: PNY 560 Ti OC2
RAM: G.skill ripjaws 4gb 1333
PSU: Antec Truepower New 650
HDD: WD Caviar Blue 7200RPM
OD: Asus 24x DVD-RW
Fans: 1x 120mm fan no LED:rear mounted
2x 120mm fan with LED: Front mounted
1x 140mm fan with LED: Top mounted

I built this system so that I could easily expand by changing out a minimal number of parts, and I have confirmed that my motherboard will fit two 560 ti's. My question is though, with a 650 watt power supply, which has the required PCI-E connectors, will this be able to run SLI, and for about how long?

It should work just fine, but no more than two way SLI.

Ok, do you know how long the PSU would be able to keep up, I have heard that PSU's degrade overtime and if I get 2 560's then it will need to last ~3 maybe 4 years.

It should last for 3 years or more, but you may need a new one before then. I would get a 750 or 850w PSU the next time you need one.
