A Xeon is not a gaming CPU. Get an i5 instead. And 850W is major overkill for a single GPU setup.

Its a crossfire-ready build therefore a right PSU for the job. And this xeon is a great gaming CPU. And good for lots of 3D modeling/Rendering too.

for how many years do u think i get to use this and run new games in the market on high settings? also for 3D stuff , how much of a difference does an i5 4670K make compared to i7 4820K? will i have to change mobo in future in case of upgrading to i7 ? btw could you suggest a gigabyte/asus mobo instead? i dont have access to ASRock in here.

Four years at least, maybe 5. X79 does nothing for gaming and if you want to get a new CPU you will most likely have to get a new socket, but from what I hear the next generation (Broadwell) will be using the LGA 1150 socket. What country are you from? Most likely you will be able to buy Asrock products if you look around enough.
