Gaming rig for around 1200

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

Motherboard: MSI B75MA E33

    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
