AMD 965 for maxing upcoming games.

I plan on getting the 965, the last cpu I can use on this aging mobo, overclocking is not an option, so my question is how long will this last for maxing games at 50 plus fps with a 1280x1020 resolution when coupled with a powercolor 7850 oc'd 2gb gpu and 8gb of ram. I am going to college in 2 years and dont plan on gaming too much, will this work in the meantime.
I can deal with at least 4x AA
Any suggestions comments, need a somewhat definite answer before ordering it.

Also what are your thoughts on maxing BF4 when it comes out.

  1. I suppose you mean the phenom 965 yes ? i think that's an aging processor. it's glory days are past. i would strongly recommend something else.

    EDIT

    I don't mean to say it's a bad processor, i just meant there are better ones these days.

    At that resolution, yes, the Phenom II 965 and a 7850 will max virtually any game out there and give you 50+ frames per second. I don't think the previous replier processed what you were saying. 1280x1024 will not put up any fight with that hardware. Also, just a suggestion, but the Powercolor 7870 Myst edition is worth the ~$30-$40 more than the 7850, and will definitely keep you gaming for the next couple of years.
