Is the i3 processors usable for another 6 years ?

Hi I am planning to build a medium level gaming rig that can play atleast Crysis 1/Assasins Creed Brotherhood (You get the idea), on a very tight budget.

After much research based on performance and cost (cost, mainly!), I have rounded upon
CPU : i3 - 3220 3.3 Ghz
Mobo : Intel DH61ZE / DH61BL (Please say which combo will be better)

I already have a 9500 GT graphics card.

So how does this config sound?

Also, how long do you all think it will take for the i3 processors to get outdated?

Thanks for sharing your inputs.

  1. Whatever processor you buy now will be outdated within a year or less. In 6 years from now, the i3 will still perform the same, but newer processors will be much faster. Your question should probably be "Do I want to use an i3-3220 for the next 6 years?" Only you can answer that question.
