Looks good. You could save money by getting an 560ti. Some of them rival 570 performance and it will save you around $100. Other than that I really can't say anything as you've got yourself a nice build.

750W is the sort of wattage you should buy if you do plan to add another card in the future. If you don't then a 500W would be perfectly fine.

If I was you I'd get either of these:

Kingwin Lazer Platinum 550W 80Plus Platinum Modular $160 ($2 shipping)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Seasonic X-560 80Plus Gold Modular $127 ($10 shipping)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Seasonic X-650 80Plus Gold Modular $140 ($20 off promo code)

I was planning to have 750W PSU as future-proof.. Just in case if I happen to buy new video card (single set-up) in few years, it might drain more power.

All new cards are significantly less power hungry since ATI 5000's and GTX 500's. You won't need 750W for a single GPU but it doesn't hurt to have one anyways. I doubt video ATI and NVIDIA are going to get more power demanding as the trend has distinctively gone towards better efficiency.

So do you think 650W PSU will be enough as future-proof for single card set up?

Rig some sort of Gatling turret outside your front and back door so your PC parts are safe while your plugging away at work. Also electrify your windows. [:bohleyk:1]
