So pretty much I want to know if this system will suit my needs for years to come. Especially, is the GTX 670 2GB good enough for newer games like Assasins creed 3 and Battlefield 4 (when it comes out :p )
Also if it makes a difference I will be running windows 8 pro

Thank you for taking time from your day to answer my question!

Yes the gtx 670 will do perfectly fine with all games..
If anything, I would consider an ssd boot drive.. Your systems speed will almost be bottlenecked with a hdd as your boot drive.. Maybe a future upgrade :) 

If you are wanting to run dual graphics cards, I would strongly recommend a better motherboard..

Other than that, looks good and should Work perfectly with what you want to do.

thanks for the reply. I think I will get an ssd, so should I install windows on the ssd and then put some of my commonly used games on it? Also could you recommend a cost effective ssd.

Thanks!

Yes, your os will take up around 20gb, then put commonly used games and software on there aswell.. keep in mind, ssd's still have small capacities for the size and you will fill it up fast if you put all your software on there.
I have 2 ssd's, i loved the performance from the first one so much, i bought another to put the rest of my software on there :D 

For cost effectiveness when it comes to ssd's I would shoot for the OCZ Agility 3 120gb. I use this as my boot drive, it is imo the best performance (500mbs r/w) for the best price.. Keep in mind, there were firmware issues with some batches i believe.. but im pretty sure thats all solved now anyway :)

Ok so if I were to run dual graphics cards, would I need a new mobo or would the one I have work?

The one you have would work, but not at the full capability, if you were to put 2 cards in, one would run at 16x at a pci 3 standard and the other at 4x at a pci 2 standard.

a better motherboard and they will both run at 16x
