Future-Proofing....Let's Play a Guessing Game

1) AMD FX-6300
Radeon 7850

2) AMD FX-6300
Radeon 7870

3) Intel i5-3570k
Radeon 7870

4) Intel i7-3770k
Radeon 7950 Boost

THE GAME: Guess how many years each system will last as an effective gaming PC (longevity, live, future-proofness, whatever) by playing games at decent frame rates on low. When you predict the system will fail SUGGEST WHICH PART TO UPGRADE. Please do not exaggerate to make statements or to get a point across.

THE POINT: To make sure my build makes sense for what I need.

Thanks! I hope this post makes sense and merry Christmas! (obviously my present is still in the works...)

    You don't have to ask me any questions. All I ask is that you put your predictions. Example:

    1) 2 years; upgrade CPU and GPU

    2) 6 years; upgrade GPU

    etc.

    Thanks!
