Cheap Gaming PC build question.

I havent build a PC before this will be my first. the main games I wanted to play were BF3, Skyrim, and minecraft on at least Low or maybe medium since i have a low budget. I saw this article and i think i am going to go with the AMD build which is

AMD A8-3850 APU
AsRock A75 Motherboard
8GB DDR3 1600 Memory
Corsair CX430
1TB HDD with 64b Win 7

So i see on the video that it can run BF3 on low settings since it has a integraded HD 6550 and I am ok with that. My question would be if I wanted to upgrade in the future, could I upgrade the PSU and throw on a graphics card ( i was looking at the GTX 560 ti ) or would I need to upgrade the motherboard too, in which case I might not even bother going with this low cost build. Also is that processor worth it?

Buy an HD6670 to run in Hybrid crossfire.
Mind you, turning off the integrated graphics and adding the GTX560ti couldn't hurt.
