How many years will this last?

Hello, I need help configuring my first pc build. It will mainly be for gaming (Battlefield 3, among other games). my budget is capped at about $850, so I need to know if some of these parts can be swapped for better/equal cost parts.

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k

    if thats just the regular antec black case then i'd go for the haf 912 instead. i have the haf 912 and it has much better cable management and more room for parts compared to the antec 300

    you really dont need 8 GB of ram for gaming so i would go for some dual channel g-skill ripjaws at 2x2 gb and then a year or two down the road, throw 4 more gigs in if u want but right now games cant benefit from more than 4 GB of ddr3

    if u drop down to 4GB u can put that towards a slightly nicer gpu like say a gtx 560ti which performs a bit better than a 6870 (i wish i had that card over my own 6870)

    as for the rest of your system, i wouldnt change a thing

    theres my two cents :)
  2. thank you good sir!
