sup guys, you think this build will be okay and will last, for at least 1 or 2 years with no need to upgrade with no problems? the only part i want to change is my current gpu, a hd 5850

i already have an corsair tx650w psu in my current build, and the hd 5850 i just mentioned. if this build is okay, i will order the parts. after getting the build I'm probably selling the hd 5850 and getting an gtx 570.

later on with this MOBO, i can change to a phenom ii x6 if i need more cpu power.

Thx guys, any comment will be appreciated

if you have the extra cash then i would go buy an SSD
if ur going to OC, add some extra cooling to the cpu ( not the stock one)
other then that it should be fine
check out my thread, look at the 2 different builds there, similar to yours >>>

^ SSD would be a good option if you have some cash left, also same with the cooler if overclocking...
As for rest of the build, if you will be getting a GTX 570, then getting a Crossfire capable mobo would be of no use IMO...
Rest are good,...
Check these cases...
