The things you need to change are
1. Go for a higher wattage like 600w - 750 w this will make it upgradable in future.
2. Get four sticks of rams this will double the speed as you can then reap the benefits of quad channel
3. Gtx 650 ti is alright but go for gtx 670 to ensure quality gaming for at least two to three year( for full HD resolution or less)
4. Get an SSD.
5. Get 500GB sata III their price is almost same.

i agree with u about the power supply but adding more ram doesn't speed up the system or anything
about the card he can add a another 650ti if he wants in the future
ssd for sure
and the hdd too should be sata III and 7400/rpm

I am not telling to add more memory but to fill up all the ram slots as it will speed up the system. for example if you have 2x4gB cards and about 4gB of ram is used up by any application then they both cards will store 2gb each and if there are 4x2gB cards then each card will handle 1gb of data.

and buying a 670 is way cheaper than buying 2 650 cards (obviously 2 650 will be way faster)
also I thought that 670 is 384bit. sorry about that

You cannot SLI a GTX 650ti So i would recommend a 670 (Plus not all games are compatible with SLI anyways)
