Future proof as in lasting at least 5 years lol. With Ivy and Nvidia 600 series coming up, I didn't want to wait 6-12 months for their release because I needed a new rig to play some of the recent games coming up. Here's my build I plan to buy so I can be future proof. I plan to upgrade it to Ivy once it hits and get the new 600 card once it hits. SSD will get later once price comes down.
