on your build you put in a cheap power supply on a higher end gaming rig. and a non needed netowrk card as most new motherboards have one hard wired ethernet port. used the money for better power supply. the video card is fine for some games...would put in a 770 or one of the newer high end amd gpu or waitied for nvidia maxwell.
your bro pc is very weak for the price.

those fans add up to $100+. Imagine what you could do with that.
if you're that worried about heat, get a noctua nh-d14 instead..

Its hard to say how long things will last because of how fast technology evolves.
I would recommend though if you are doing mostly gaming and not graphic design or video editing that you downgrade the ram to 8GB and upgrade the graphics card to a GTX 770 . That card is usually around $350 and is much better, not to mention it comes with AC4, Splinter Cell and Batman Arkham Origins

You could replace the keyboard mentioned above with the Microsoft Sidewinder X4 which is around $50, which would allow you to get better components seeing as you'd save $80.

If you plan on running more than one monitor than go with the 4GB otherwise 2GB is fine.

If you can afford it then go with the 4GB.
