Yes definitely future proof, you have a mobo that can handle multi GPU's and you can also crossfire that card with a 7900 series. You also need a PSU,ODD(optional), Case etc. Unless you already have the other parts

Not a bad build, but might want to be stronger in the CPU department.

I'd lower the mobo to a 970 ( still with good features ) and add in a cooler instead. Higher gaming performance since you can OC your CPU now :

Might downgrade the vga to a Powercolor 7870 xt V2, too, but then that card doesn't have a good cooling system.

Yes, also I can upgrade CPU in the future when Steamroller comes out. I have other parts, need only these 5 parts. Thanks
