So I'm trying to come up with a good gaming PC that will last for the next few years.
A couple of questions that I have are, will the parts listed down below work together?
How long should this PC last before needing a upgrade?
I do a lot of gaming and rendering, would it be good at both?
If I do go ahead and get this, would there be extra cables, wires ect. that I would need to buy. If so what?
Is 750 watt good enough for 2 GTX 660 Ti's in SLI?
Should I get a water cooler instead?

As for the parts.

GTX 660 Ti's in SLI wouldn't be a good idea, the 192-bit memory bus would bottleneck it, especially in SLI.
What is your budget?

around 2000$ I could bump it up to 2100$ but not much more than that.

Don't try future proofing. You never know when you will need to upgrade. An i7 will be good at both, yes. Although if you're doing mostly gaming I'd say save the money and get an i5 3570k.

1. I included an i7 because of rendering. If you don't do much, you can drop it to an i5.
2. This motherboard provides most of the features of the P8Z77-V Pro at a lower price. (If you need Wi-fi or Bluetooth, you can get a discrete card.)
3. This build has 2 7970's in Crossfire. The power supply I included is more than enough for both of them. You'll be having a hell of a build here.
4. I included a Blu-ray drive. If you don't want one, you can get a DVD drive instead.

2 TB hard disk AND a SSD is going a bit overboard tbh. Cut some costs and get a 1 TB hd and a SSD. Or you could just leave out the SSD. Although SSDs don't really help with gaming, but they're still pretty handy.
