How long will my build be ideal?

Hello
My configuration->
Core I7 3770K
Asrock Extreme 4
Corsair Vangeance 4GB x2 RAM
Seagate barracuda 1TB HDD
Samsung 840 SSD 120GB
Corsair Tx850M Power Supply
Cooler Master 690 2 Plus Cabinet
ATI sapphire 7950 vector-x boost edition 3gb graphics card
Cooler Master 690 2 advanced
Corsair H100i cooler

How long will I stay good with my build (I mean, how long do you think it can run all latest games fine).
The thing is, if its before a good amount of time, I will start collecting money right away... else I will spend it :D
So please give me some estimation. I can go purchasing another 7950 gpu and crossfiring them.
Same with ram. But other components are likely not going to be upgraded for a while....

  1. It will be ideal, right up until the day after you buy a new game that does not run well on it.

    now that... is something I wanna know :p
    I play only newer games like bf4 and cod ghosts (currently both ran on full graphics).
    So i wanna know, approx. how long before a game comes that my pc wont be able to handle

    What you are asking is impossible to answer :)

    None of us know what the future might bring. Why worry now? Simply update the build when you think it's no longer powerful enough.

    at least 3 -4 years
    currently only about 40% people have 2gb cards
    and 1% have 3 gb cards
    so the developers always keep this in mind

    if you consider lowest settings at least 5 years is predictable
