Default $700 ?) Computer build (Help?)

So im trying to build a cheaper Mid-Ranged computer so i can run Diablo 3 and hopefully still be able to use it in the future for games.

I stayed up late last night compiling a list of parts to put into my comp. I wanted to run it by some people smarter than I, to see if it'll all work well together. (I.E. is it all compatible?)
I also was inquiring into what kind of PSU i might need for this. (to allow for future Upgrades aswell as maybe some overclocking.)

So this is what ive got so far. ( any suggestions as far as a cheaper and better part would also be appreciated if so inclined?)

Motherboard: [SUP]MSI 890GXM-G65 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

[/SUP]AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM
maybe x2 right away so ($118 )? Do i need that much ram?

GFX: EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
maybe "eventually" x 2 so ($269.98)? Opt out for better GfX card later?

CPU Heat-Sink:
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler Compatible Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7

Network Card:
TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Wireless N Dual Band Adapter IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express x1 Up to 450Mbps Wireless Data Rates Support 64/128 bit WEP, WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK, 802.1x

Case: Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

PSU: (Uncertain of how much power I need) plz suggest one that would work with this setup?
( $???)

SUBTOTAL: ($581) + (PSU $$$?)

Again any help as far as, is this all compatible and will it all function well together is much appreciated. thanks
