This is my first build with a budget around $850. I'm not going to be streaming or rendering, this is mostly just for gaming (console games mostly). I'm definitely going to upgrade this build in the future so I'd want to have space for cross-fire and a SSD/another HDD. Any suggestions on making this better or any problems with it?

Too much for taht PSU and case. Also you would be better off just upgrading to a better single card instead of XF.

Better PSU, it has a much better case, and generally a better motherboard, and I saved money.
