Up to what time (year) will the video card MAX out the games with frame rates above 40 before SLI will be necessary to Max the games out in the future.. What about the Mobo and the ivy bridge processor? Anything helps.. peace..

2013. Crysis 3 has already broken the 680 maxed out, Far Cry 3 maxed out also murders your FPS down to 30 with 16x AF and 4 x MSAA, and Metro 2033 still can't be maxed out, FPS drop below 40 too often.

Parts are OK, similar to what I built, drop the PSU down to a Corsair TX 750 v2 and get an IPS screen. Rest is OK.

No way of knowing that. It depends completely on what games come out.

That being said, you can save a LOT of money, get the EXACT same performance in games, and have that money later on down the road. Because honestly, this build is overkill in all the wrong ways - you're wasting money left and right.

This is a prebuilt, I presume?

I will mostly play Battlefield 3 on ULTRA and I hear Anti-aliasing is not needed as the difference is not so major on BF3 when playing Ultra 1080p. I will also be playing more than 1 game at once (minimizing 1) like World of Warcraft which is less demanding while playing BF3 and having tons of other apps and browser windows open.

AA always helps, even at 1200p. BF3 is fine, but new games won't be completely maxed. I'd keep the i7 and get a 690 if you can if you really want longevity. Or get the 680 now and consider the 790 when its released.

I'm surprise how fast the responses here are. I have to chill in these forums more often.
I am staying with the GTX 680 4GB for now i'll just tweak/tone down the settings until i get 40+ frame rates with the new games coming out.

What about the ASUS Z77 Sabertooth? Aesthetically, it looks cool but will it last?
I also picked the i7-3770K as it is ivy bridge and I hear it even outperforms the newer sandy bridge processors in some ways.

Again thanks NV88 and the others..

Any suggestions or anything don't bother to reply.. Thanks people ^_^

Not very long considering that the next gen consoles are coming out there for graphics will again be able to be pushed cause the new consoles will be much stronger.

HOLD THE PRESSES! Where did you get the info that Crysis 3 & Far Cry 3 crush the 680?

How long do you think SLI (Two 4GB GTX 680s) on the gaming desktop specs above will last? They should perform almost equivalent to a GTX 690 or better. But last up to 4 years e.g 2016 maybe to play newest games in Max or close to Max settings and have playable frame rates above 40 fps overclocked or not?
Answer that and Thread is SOLVED.

People are giving far too much credit to the new consoles capabilities. Unless Microsoft wants to price their next Xbox at $600 or so (LOL PS3), they aren't going to be as insanely powerful as everyone seems to think they will be.

even a xbox with a gpu on par with a 7770 would push graphics on the xbox and pc world a lot. that level gpu would warrant a large price tag either. power of quantity!
