We're talking new releases, right? On any setting, probably 5+ years, I'd say, but new high end releases by that time would need to be on significantly lower setting.

How long.... is my man parts?

Sorry had to Do it couldnt resist.

But on a serious note i think 5 years is being very optimistic. Probably about 2 or 3 years max on decent settings.

would play any game if you overclock gpu and cpu. It'll last awhile until any component gives out considering no machine can max eveything in even a year or two right now...

Your CPU is fine for at least another 3 years, especially if you OC it.

GPUs get obsolete much faster.
