You'll be very happy with the Card and will serve you well for sure

You have what is shaping up to be a very Solid Build. I think it for sure with a few minor tweaks will last at least 5 years. Though I am in agreement with everyone else here that 5 Years is probably the max I would go in upgrade cycles.

I can't imagine running my 930 + X58 Classy board still. Lacking all the current technology that I have today.


As for GPU, I would for sure sit out the 20XX series cards. Let AMD and Intel catch up and keep NVidia Honest before grabbing a new GPU.
