Hi, everyone i have this build in mind will be using it as a gaming rig and to do schoolwork so i thought i'd do a compatibility check and ask for some suggestions as if i should go another way on one of the things i'm looking at

Case: The NZXT Phantom

PSU: CORSAIR TX 650
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168...

CPU: Intel I5 quad core 3570
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168...

Harddrive: Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168...

Motherboard: MSI B75MA E33
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168...

For the GPU I don't know if the ASUS GTX 670 would be compatible

Or the EVGA GTX670

If you want future SLI capabilities then you need to change out your motherboard and I would size up on the power supply.

Ok yeah i figured that is it possible to run a sigle ASUS GTX670 with those parts? so when i do decide to go SLI i can upgrade? and keep the parts that came off for another build or should i upgrade the PSU and the Mobo for the single GTX670
