I can still play everything on high 1080.
You should upgrade your RAM... 2gb is definitely not enough these days... Specially with a x64 OS.

What's your opinions and how many years do you think this rig will last me, would I need to OC higher if I changed GPU and would I need to upgrade smile.gif

looks pretty good to me,,,you could overclock that 3770k more,,but if your happy at 4ghz thats great too

i,m sure happy with the sabertooth z77,,good solid board

the only thing i,m having issues with is my gtx570,,,,not enough video memory,,its only 1.25gbs,,,,crysis2 maxes the memory and it freezes sometimes,,,a 2 or 3 gb gpu would be better

your psu,motherboard,memory and cpu will last you a long time,,your 660ti will do good for a couple years i would think,,it has 2gbs of memory

In terms of CPU/Motherboard/RAM it's absolutely high-end, and you shouldn't need any upgrade on these for the next 5 years I'd say. Only thing here is you should sell that H60 and buy a Swiftech H220 when it comes out this month (if it fits your case), or go for an H80i which outperforms the H100i (oh Corsair you). Any of the two options should make 4.5GHz easy for your 3770K, which will be plenty for 4-5 years. The GPU on the other hand will start holding you back in the next couple of years (GPUs generally do that).

Having said that I think you should be OK for a couple of years. Then a GPU upgrade will be needed (860Ti?) and you'll have more juice once more to last you until the rest of your system starts underperforming.

Some people don't like 30 FPS, or having to lower graphics settings.

Im amazed at people with less then 1gb vram card and say they can run "Everything". Must look like a sega genesis.

Anyways yea, I agree with most everyone that 660ti is quite low compared to everything else. Its probably struggling in games with HD mods or injectors atm so 1-2 years Probably everything on medium depending on the consoles... I would hold out till the 8xxx and 7xx series later this year though.
