Hey Guys! I'm just wondering whether my Gaming Rig will be solid for another 3 - Possible 3 1/2 Years? My budget is around £500, excluding any Peripherals and Case. Also please tell me if you have a similar PC to this? I would love to hear how it is with Games such as Battlefied 4/Hardline, Minecraft with Shaders? Or any other FPS games?

My PC Specs:
CPU: AMD FX-8350 Black Edition 4.0GHz (Will be Overclocking to possibly 4.5GHz)
GPU: Gigabyte Windforce 3x R9 280x Rev 2.0
RAM: G.Skill 8GN DDR3 (Heard that DDR4 has been released)
Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 (Evo?) R2.0

Yes DDR4 has been released from some manufacturers. Hurray!

I predict the computer will be able to play the latest games for at least 4 years. And when it reaches maybe the third or forth year, then you may need to play on high not ultra or medium not high.

Why I say this and what's my evidence?
Well it's not so much of proof but my friends have a PC from 3 years ago. They both have a 7790 and manage to play high and ultra on Battlefield 4 without a sweat on at least 50+FPS.

Lol No... I didn't say that I wanted DDR4 RAM on it, I was just asking whether DDR4 was out :3 Sorry for any confusion :)

I have an FX-8150 @ 4.2 GHz and its already failing to hold up on the more CPU heavy games. An 8350 is better, but not that much better. I highly doubt that it'll hold up for years to come.
Your graphics card will fare much better though.
