$600-660 Gaming pc, build critique and help.

Long time lurker here, needing advice for my 2nd build ever which is going to be for my brother. Our budget is a 600-660(700 if its worth it) on a pretty much pure gaming pc. He wont be playing at a very high res so this budget should be ample enough for him to play the latest games etc.

This is what i have so far, with alot of the parts/ideas coming from the $650 gaming pc this quarter. Looking for advice on pretty much any of the parts and whether or not it all works together really.

  1. Drop the Diablo PSU. It is bad quality. Try the XFX 550W PSU.
  2. 550 watt is enough but u need atleast another hundred watts for an sli build in the future
  3. Well i have no plans to, and im not sure that mobo does either. Thanks i should be ordering tonight unless anyone has any glaring errors!
  4. Looking at the sapphire website it says the card requires 2x 75w 6 pin pci express connectors
    and the xfx says it has 1 6 pin, these are not compatible right?
