"Power Connector
None"


This is wrong, obviously being a 130W card it needs more than a single 75w pci-e x16 can give. It has a 6 pin connector.

This one is having little problems with SLI,so in case cr@p goes down…
Just to be safe :D

If you're getting an FX6300, go for 1866mhz RAM. Make sure that it's CAS 9 or below though and runs at 1.5V.
Sometimes, 1866mhz RAM is cheaper than it's 1600mhz counterpart. For example, Patriot's Viper 3 RAM, which, by the way, I would highly recommend.
And don't get a CX500 - the CX series of PSUs aren't great. Get an XFX 550W PSU - they're one of the best PSUs around atm, and they're pretty cheap :D

Your APU will most likely limit marginally the HD7850 performance in CPU intensive applications or games, but other than that it should go well.

As long as your haven't changed the voltages, there will be no problems at all, unless temps are running high.
