  1. prettu good build. the 6950 will be the best GPU
  2. Build looks good. Id recommend the GTX 560Ti over the 6950 though.

    Also 650w PSU isnt quite enough for an SLI set up and is over-kill for a single card. Id either look towards a 750w PSU or just buy a 500w unit. Recommended brands include: Corsair, Antec, SeaSonic, XFX. Look for 80PLUS ratings :)

    PSU that available in my area. Which is better?

    THERMALTAKE TR2 Bronze 500W *80 Plus Bronze
    AEROCOOL STRIKE-X Series PSU 500W *80 Plus Bronze
    CORSAIR Builder Series™ CX500 *80 Plus Bronze
    SILVERSTONE ST50F-ES (500W) *80 Plus
  4. of the ones you list, in terms of quality:

    Corsair
    Silverstone
    Thermaltake
    Aerocool

    I'd get whichever of the corsair or silverstone that is less expensive.
