New Gaming PC Configuration HELP!

Hello, i recently bought a prebuilt PC from vender MainGear. I have pretty limited knowledge regarding pc components and hardware and I was wondering if in the future If I decided I wanted a dual graphics card set up, if my system configuration would allow this. Also, any comments regarding my systems expandibility and upgradibility are more than welcome because I do, in fact, plan for this system to age well in my household.

Chassis: F131 with VRTX Cooling Technology (SilverStone FT03)

Motherboard: Asus® P8Z77-M Pro Featuring Lucid Virtu MVP, CrossFire and SLI

Processor: Intel® Core™ i5 3570K 3.4GHz/3.8GHz Turbo 6MB L3 Cache HD 4000

Intel® Turbo Boost Advanced Automatic

Processor Cooling: MAINGEAR Certified Intel® Retail Cooler

Memory: 8GB Corsair® Vengeance™ DDR3-1600 1.5V (2x4GB)

Power Supply: 600W Seasonic® 80+ Certified

Graphics and GPGPU Accelerator: AMD® Radeon™ HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 w/Eyefinity

Hard Drive Bay One: 1TB Seagate® Barracuda™ 7200rpm 64MB Cache SATA 6G

Optical Drive One: 8X Dual Layer DVD RW Drive Slot Loading SATA


NOTES:

I plan on buying a 100+ gb SSD near the end of 2012 Q4 once prices drop

My chassis, the FT03. has very limited hard drive space (3 3.5 inch slots + 2.5 inch slot)

If you have any recommendations for overall performance upgrades your comment will be appreciated. Of course, i'm looking for bang-for-your-buck performance enhancers, such as an SSD install.

YOUR KNOWLEDGE IS APPRECIATED!

    Of course you can! Great mobo BTW. It supports quad gpu CrossfireX, meaning you can put two dual-GPUs onto the board and make them work as one. But, if you didn't know, you need a bridge to connect the two, which should come with the Radeon 7950. I wouldn't see why you would buy another 7950 though. That 7950 alone can perform very well. That's unless you want to become number one on the 3dmark leaderboards. :lol:
