Game coding hasn't changed much in the last 15 years. Yes there are some games that are more CPU intensive than others, but the most limiting factor is currently and will for some time still be the video card. I see no reason why that system with a GTX 670 couldn't keep up with gaming technology for 3 or 4 years. And by 6 years, everything is a dinosaur no matter what you buy today when you're talking computers.
