How's it going everyone, I was wondering if the build I was planning on is future proof.

My Goals: For this build I want to be able to play games at a resolution of 2560 x 1080 at full settings (namely BF4) while recording and/or streaming.

Components: Case - Corsair 900d

Mobo - Asus Maximus VI Formula

CPU - Intel 4770k

GFX - Dual GTX 770 SLI

PSU - Corsair HX850

RAM - Corsair Vengeance 16gb

Cooling - H100i

Storage - 3TB WD Black
- Samsung Evo 840 SDD

I think i just about got everything, anything you can help me with would be much appreciated!

Define "future proof." No computer is truly future proof, say, I have a Pentium 4 ht computer from back near the begging the 20th century, it still works the same as it did back in 2002, but the software has far surpassed it that it has ceased to be of any use to anyone. In time, that will happen to your computer, but chances are is that it will still work as well with software of now, but unless you want to continue using autocad 2014 in 2018, you will want to update your computer's hardware again.

nothing is future proof. it should last you a good 3-4 years, then after that you might have to turn settings down.

Well 3-4 years is what the term future proof means right?

I really dont know. right now I would go lga 2011 for 6-8core support later on when games and apps become more core/bandwidth sensitive, that way it may last a little longer, but that is just my opinoin.
