And if you do plan on current games, you really will want Windows 7 for DX11 capabilities with a newer card. Not to mention that 16GB kit of RAM you bought.....

EDIT:
And in your sig rig's other section, you forgot upgrade your monitor.
It wasn't forgetfulness that kept that out of my other section.
I have a 1680x1050 TV sitting next to me as a secondary monitor, but I prefer the 1280x1024 res for everything I do. I'll not be upgrading this for a long while, and if anything I'll get a new TV that does 1080p as 1680x1050 is such a pointless res.
1280x1024 is perfection, IMO.
