  1. It's okay imo.
    Dunno exactly what yous system usage is and/or what your preferences are so I can't really comment.
  2. For a gaming rig its fine, for a HTPC its too much, for a video editing/compute machine its too little.
    Need to know what your doing with it before we can comment.

    currently i'm mostly in youtube and i will play games everyday for 2 hours my monitor res is 1600x900 but i will upgrade to a 27 inch full hd monitor for a rear or two from now ..i will upgrade my cpu only every 5 years even now i'm using a dual core 45nm 2.8ghz. note that i'm not a overclocking addict i just want to have a best system than anyone had in my circle
    so what type of system i need?

    that is a powerful build for gaming @ 1600x900. you may want to get a better graphics once you upgrade the monitor and want to game with ultra settings.

    with a gpu upgrade later, that will last you 5+ years if you consider overclocking down the road.
