Mid end card usually have a breath for next 1-2 years games..and top highend cards for next 3-4 years game.

Well, i still using my old 5850 since 2009. and with slight overclocking, i'm still happy about the performance.. :)

so it will be good for only 2years and then what,keep in mind that i finished mw3 on very low on intel hd 3000
so i can't get a another upgrade for 3-4 years so 2 years ultra gaming or 2 years low gaming,

Sorry Mate, but yes it will run games on decent settings for a while. Use Geforce experience to get the best visuals/framerates.

Oh it's ok and i did gave geforce experience a try but it recognizes game from disc but not from steam and i mostly bought the games off steam summer sale(i ordered alot,thankyou steam) so it isn't working but maybe could be an issue with my geforce experience so i shall uninstall it and download another one,thanks mate and cheers

Well, 2 years later you after your graphics card cannot play games at good frame rate , you can add second 660Ti and run it in sli mode..:) 
It will give a breath to your system for next 2 more years..:)

Go into GFE options and add the steam folder to scan for games, it recognizes all mine.

So it will not be able to play games at low after 3 years then that is just sad man,but i think it should be able to play them at low as my friend has a 8800gt and it plays games at medium or low(very rareley high)

Best solution

Most likely expect two to three years out of this, each gen settings will lower, but that just means this will be entry level in 4 years.

Yes it won't exactly double it but it will increase greatly, SLi setups outlast regular ones by a year or two.
