You say you want a Future Proof PC .....$$$ is no object BUT you're not planning on building for 2 months...... I would suggest putting your Parts list together in 2 months ;)

Yeah in two months everything can change for pricing. For a dedicated gaming rig on a high budget you would be best served with a Z97 based motherboard (start looking into which models and features you want), and a 4770k or soon to be released 4790k (probably the later, but I will wait for reviews to say for sure). What resolution will you be playing at (that will determine what graphics card you need, and in turn what size power supply)? Do you want a large full tower case, or a mid-tower? Plan on water cooling, or all in one water cooler, or staying with air cooling? Priorities towards noise, airflow, or trying to balance the 2?

The reality is even on a relatively modest budget it will be substantially faster than a 5+ year old PC. What are your current components?

no man... don't wait...

build now with low grade PC parts.
and spend your bonus cash on peripherals.

then in 6 months, see how you feel about the process.
and build something even better.

I am sorry, but that is not good advice IMO.

I would never use low grade parts, especially not to get peripherals that aren't as important.

And given he has had the last computer for 5+ years I doubt he will start rebuilding every 6 months.

If you do it right the first time you don't need to upgrade every 6 months. Obviously that doesn't matter to computer people (a lot of people on sites like this), since they like building and upgrading continuously, but most people would never go through the hassle.

Sam, what's your budget? That's the first question I ask myself, how much do I have to spend (including taxes and shipping).

Once we have that it'll be easier to give you some suggestions.

No the first question is, which resolution and what refresh rates are you going after?

Example: if you want the highest resolution possible, you'll have to do with 60hz refresh rate on your display and that means you'll be gaming on 60 fps. It's great for almost all games but not the best for first person shooters. Asus, Sasmsung, Dell, AOC and Acer all have models that go as low as $650

Now of you want the smoothest experience possible, you'll need a 144hz display which is the fastest refresh rate available. The highest resolution possible in that rate is 2560x1440 and there's only 1, the Asus ROG Swift. I never got into FPSs until I played in 120hz. Before that I always got motion sickness when turning 180 degrees on 60hz.

In theory, 3840 x 2160 res @ 60fps should require the same or a little more graphics processing than 2560x1440 @ 120fps does. GPUs today can't can't deal with 4K without compromising the graphics setting.
