But to get 2 to 3 years without an upgrade means you are in for a few thousand more. I'd like to see the i7 in spite of what I write about that, 16GB RAM and the top of the line GPU from this link.
If you just need this for gaming with games out today respectably, why not stick your plan (but a lot more RAM).
So im planning on building a gamer pc capable of playing any game on ultra settings for the next 2/3 years at least.This is the build i ve come up so far and i would like some opinions regarding my selections. Mostly i want to know if the items meet each others requirements or not. (This is the first time im building a tower piece by piece).
-Intel Core i5 3570 (CPU)
-Gigabyte H61M-S2PV (Motherboard)
-MSI N660TF 2GD5/OC 2GB (GPU)
-Corsair DDR3 4GB 1600MHz XMS3 (RAM)
-Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD 3.5" (64MB Cache,7200RPM, Sata 6Gb/s) (Hard disk)
-Corsair Builder Series CX500 500W PSU 80+ Bronze (CP-9020047-EU) (Power Supply)
