I do want the extra power to last me for a while without having to replace the chip but I also don't want to overpay if I don't NEED it or won't see any noticeable performance difference.

Like edgeofblade already said, go for the i5, it shouldn't be a though cookie. the only performance boost you'll get out of an i7 is for editing and graphics programs, not for games, and for going with an i5 of the same price as an other i7 would really increase the performance in games. with that said and for a 1400$ budget I recommend probably the i5-6500 and the gtx 970. Especially the 970 which has a really good price/performance ratio. You could go for a better i5 if there still is room for it. Going for this one you will have to go for ddr4 ram but ram has decent prices atm and will also contribute to keep it going for a few years like you said. Both of this will leave some room to upgrade them and should be just VR-ready even though by the time vr-headsets become more affordable you will probably be at the stage of upgrading your stuff again.

Hope this helps,
-Jake

Managed to squeeze in an overclockable i5 6600K and a GTX1080, more than enough power for 4k/VR. I'm even such a good guy that even I tried to make a quiet build for the wife. thumb.gif
