First build, good for at least 3 years?

Basically looking to have a low-mid to midrange system that would last for at least three years without a GPU/CPU upgrade. Mainly going to be used for gaming, but I might dip into Source Filmmaker a few times. Any suggestions on minor changes?

AMD FX-6300 (maybe a phenom II x4 965 instead, any input from you all?)
EVGA GTX 660
AsRock 970 Extreme3
WD 1TB
CoolerMaster HAF 912
CoolerMaster eXtreme Power 550w
Windows 8
Rosewill RNX-N250PCe
Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1333

Comes in under $750. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/12hmJ for full details on parts.
I plan to buy the parts around Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Christmas, so of course then I might be able to get more for the same price.

    Pick your parts 5 1/2 months from now.
