Will it be able to play modern games on high graphics settings?
Will it be able to play new games for the next few years?

you dont need 16gb for gaming, ever,,,,get some 2x4gb http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-memory-cmz8gx3m... also, your motherboard chipset is outdated, exactly the same motherboard with a newer chipset http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/asrock-motherboard-z97e... ....the money you save from the ram, get a 290x http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-112...

a very similar build i did for a friend not so long ago http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/MfWrYJ

Thankyou for answering. However wont future games use more RAM like 16GB? or would you advise upgrading to 16GB when there is games that use more RAM?

You can definitely start with 8GB (2x4) and upgrade in the future provided you can find matching RAM to souble your current capacity.

Also, I recommend you look at the new 4700 series Intel CPUs. They have just come out, same price, faster stock speed, and better TIM on the IHS for lower temps.

And your PSU, I would suggest a 750w unit. They are almost the same cost and will give you a little overhead for aging, upgrades and peak efficiency.

Can you give me a link to a new 4700 series Intel CPU

yea the newer 4690k is out, however it is more expensive than the 4670k....the performance differences will be about 10%, if you want to pay more to stay updated, you can but honestly i think it would be pretty useless, the new chip isnt even a new architecture, its Haswell refresh, just with 100mhz more and a couple of things switched here and there
