More about years
  1. the intel cpu wil last you a long time. it be up to you when you want to jump onto new intel cpu tech. for the gpu the 660 already been replaced by the 1060 and faster gpu. there also going to be faster gpu next year from nvidia.
  2. Best answer
    CPU fine for probably 3-4 years
    GPU: this completely depends on what level of games you play, it is already 3 generations old
    Ram: totally good
    Motherboard: totally adequate
    Hard Drive: Black series has better chance of lasting

    Did not mention PSU which could put all of your parts in serious jeopardy if not decent enough quality.
  3. That is a silly question. Even a human can not tell if he will be alive tomorrow.

    You will have to change your pc when it is time to upgrade. As for when, no one can actually tell.

    Stop worrying and start gaming.
  4. There are some people who would have upgraded that system long ago and others who would drop in a new gpu and use it for a few more years. There is no answer to this question as it comes down to how satisfied you are with it and how much money you have spare to spend on a pc
  5. CPU: plenty of power, probably good for many years before it needs an upgrade
    GPU: still good for most games, but not good enough for new mirrors edge game. Much more powerful GPU are now available
    Ram: plenty
    Motherboard: good choice
    Hard Drive: this is by far the slowest thing in your computer - suggest you upgrade. With an SSD your PC would boot, load programs, search for files and install updates very much faster.

    Yeah. I'm going to take an SSD when I will afford another upgrade but i will stick with the HDD because it's a Caviar Black in gaming.
