Good afternoon!

I am in the market for a new gaming rig. No pre-mades (unless it's a helluva deal), I'm doing this one myself.

My aim is a crossfire-ready mid budget (700$) gaming computer. I'd like to keep the crossfire capability so I can double up on graphics cards in a few months after the price dips a bit.

Comments, advice, insults, all are welcome!
 
I would go with an i5 instead.

You want 1600 speed RAM

Don't get a 6870. Its previous generation. Get a 7870 or 7850 instead.

You don't need a sound card. Most onboard is better than any cheap sound card.

Get a PSU from a reputable company such as Antec, XFX, Seasonic, Corsair.

To be safe for long term upgrades, I personally just purchased a 750w evga PSU and its great since my 600w Corsair was pushing the limits on the power.
