Will my gaming build be able to withhold the mighty power of next-gen gaming, or will it succumb to the extreme high powered world of High definition gaming.:??:  :( 
Here is my RIG;
- AMD FX 8350 Black Edition ( processor )
- Radeon R9 270X ( Graphics card )
- ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
- Corsair vengeance or Kingston 16GB RAM
- Coolermaster V6 GT Fan

I havent thought of a power supply yet, But all things considered, will this run all the latest, greatest, meanest and baddest of all power consuming, graphics hogging Next Gen games, such as watchdogs.
Any help would be appreciated. :)  :D 
Also, on the side-note, what power supply would be sufficient for this RIG.

Only thing i would say that could use some beefing up is the graphics card. not that the 270X is bad, but with that processor and 16GB of RAM you may as well go all the way into future proof mode. If money is tight upgrade the GPU when you see fit.

As for PSU brand try to stick with Antec, Corsair, or Seasonic

yeah i'd say get a cheaper eight gig set of ram (corsair is great as is kingston, patriot, mushkin, etc) and step up the gpu to a r9 280x, that card is amazing for the money and will keep you good for a while.

So, the processor is good, right. i was a little worried about that.
As for GPU, what would you recommend.
would GTX 690ti be good, or 280X.
lastly, what would be the correct power for the power supply, would 800 Watt be good

i second that thought. aim for a 2x 4GB. Gaming wise youll be set, if your big into rendering or editing huge 3d scenes then that RAM will make a difference, but i doubt well see games utilize that for like 4 years at least.

So, would 8GB RAM keep me satisfied in the harsh next gen weather. 16GB is no biggy for me, but what are your recommendations.

Yeah, but the thing is, i do 3D work ( Autodesk Maya, UDK ), and gaming, among a few other things, ( Adobe photoshop, Flash, after effects, HTML5, ). So I think that extra 8 gigs are really going to come in handy there.

unless you run an obscene amount of background apps, 8GB is plenty. 16GB wont throttle you down, and would leave you without the need to upgrade RAM for years and years. But if budget is an issue nowm 8GB is smartest place to cut back on, as you really wont feel the difference. Especially for gaming.
I have 8GB and i am able to run every program on my computer at once with no lag at all. Steam, chrome+tabs, libreoffice, blender, sculptris, 3dsmax 2014, blender, mypaint, photoshop CS5, and then launch Bioshock infinite with no issues at all. Maybe this is more so the fx 6300 at work, but i know RAM plays a part in that too (as a bottleneck if there was one)

Yeah. Thanks a lot beezy.
I have an AMD fx 8350 so thats not a problem. I will also cut back on RAM. it would save me a couple bucks too.
On the GPU talk, what would be great for all these. as misfitkid86 said, would r9 280x keep me satisfied.
A few more weeks and i could also get GTX 770, so would you recommend the wait. but it is also more expensive. Would r9 280x be better

It is better, but its also 100$ more which really hurts. If the 7950 and 7970 werent so hard to find for a decent price id say do that. This is really tough, as the gains i dont feel are worth 100$ but i dont know if the 270X will match the rest of the build ,or meet your expectations. The new r7 and r9 cards will support the 4k resolution that newer monitors and TVs will start supporting so consider that. If you can cut costs get the 280X it makes the most sense and matches your build nicely

Yeah, Thanks a lot Beezy. This really helps. i am going to go with the r9 280X. So overall, would this RIG devour Next Gen gaming and development, or would i have to renew it in about a year?

well that all depends on the technology of the future. Id say realistically youll be up there for at least 3 years. Games will be playable for at least 5 before you are forced to upgrade any parts. But if things start moving at an exponential rate (which it feels like it is) youll be craving new parts each year! just stay keen on the forums, and youll know which upgrades are really worth it, and which are just sly advertising and more rebadges. Just know that the r7 and r9 is the same as a 7XXX series card. i beleive the 280X = HD 7970. The only r9 series chip that is using a new chip is the 290X and its had its own problems with heating and stuff (these 'new' chips Xfire better than the previous r7 and r9/7XXX series cards do). Otherwise the only difference between an 280X and a 7970 Ghz is the r9 ability to scale up to higher resolutions. So look around, see what deals are the best and buy accordingly.
