your build is far from optimal

Its better to use the format suggested in the thread at the top of the forum about how to ask for advice

The thread part noted. One thing though, by saying my build is "far from optimal", you mean for the good side or the bad :whistle:  ?

I mean a 3770k is not recommended for gaming , and 16 gig of RAM gives no benefit over 8 gig


and if you werent paying for those you can easily fit a more powerful graphics card into your build

Well, after doing some research (reading endless reviews lol) I decided to change my CPU and GPU:

CPU: Intel core i5 3570k

GPU: EVGA Geforce GTX670 superclocked 4gb vram.

My question remains the same: Will this build hold up on the highest settings in gaming, for at least 3 years?

No system built ever will hold up on highest settings in games for 3 years

But you will still be able to game well

and very well if you are prepared to replace the graphics in about two years

I've been lurking these forums for a months or so with same questions as yours but in my opinion nothing is set on paper specially with the way technology is moving lately, upgrades are very constant.
One thing I don't understand is when asking for a gaming rig opinions everyone says i5-3570K like I will buy a PC as a console....if I'm building a gaming rig goes without saying that I want it to be fast overall not just preform good with games so when I start building mine I am going with i7-3770K, GTX680 4GB, 16GB RAM.
I would say get opinions here they are good but decided what to build according to what you'll use it for.
