Does this build seem "Future proof"

I sure hope so, since I just ordered all the parts. This will be my first time building my own computer. Any words of wisdom would be appreciated!

Now I am looking for a monitor to top off my rig. In the name of "future proofing", would I be better off with a 1440p, or a 120hz? Is it possible to have both in the same monitor? I am looking for a minimum 27 inch monitor btw.

Thanks.

More about build future proof
  1. 120hz is better from fps view
    ur rig is good enough

    why dont buy 2 monitor setup?
  2. there is no system that is ever going to be future proof due to how often new components and parts hit the market. however a build could last several years depending on usage. IE if its web-browsing and movie/music streaming, you could do fine with a sub$500 build. games/High-end video/photo editing, would be between $1000 and $2000.


    So in short it is all dependent on usage and how much you want to spend.
  3. to answer your question though, with your current setup, you are good.

    It's releasing this month for $800.00 so hold off on getting any monitor. It'll be a 120mhz 1440p monitor WITH GSYNC! Best of everything and the future of monitors period.
  5. Your build is good and will be able to handle pretty much every game on ultra.

    I have a monitor recommendation for you if you are interested;

    Monitor: Asus VG278

    Size: 27"

    Refresh Rate: 144 Hz

    Resolution: 1920x1080

    Response time: 2 ms

    Contrast: 5.000.000:1


    I own that monitor and I must say. It's amazing. Best monitor I've ever seen.

    My desk isn't big enough. I guess I'll have to add that to my list.

    Thanks to all for your suggestions. I at least have a place to start my research for various monitors now.

    Is that the VG278HE model, which I believe is the 3d ready model?

    It is 3D ready.

    I own the VG278HR. Which has a built-in 3D sensor for your glasses.

    And the glasses do include with the VG278HR.

    You're aware that 120 Mhz is equal to 120000000 Hz, right?
