Before I build, I am waiting to see the new AMD cards coming out. As of now I am currently interested in the parts listed above. How well do you think that will do for gaming once the consoles release? I would like to max pretty much everything for 2 years and run things well for an additional 3 years before going to my next build.

Yeah, you won't be able to max every game out, assuming you want at least 1080p and 60 FPS.

I was considering a 780, but the price shoots up drastically. I have about $2000 set aside for the build and plan on buying everything on black friday. But yeah I will post parts closer towards BF to see if I can get good deals that will allow me to get more for less

A 770 will be fine then. You should really upgrade to 1080p minimum for optimal quality imo. That should be your first upgrade. Then go from there.

buying a 780/7990 at a resolution of 1440 X 900 is just a pure, unadulterated waste of money. Like buying a Chevy Aveo with $3000 wheels. Get a 1080p monitor, then upgrade to an EVGA 770SC ACX or something.

I do plan to get a 1080P along with the build... but that is a bit later down the road since I am interested in an oculus rift.

I also wanted a 780, but the prices has gone up about 10% in the last couple of weeks, dang foreign exchange rate. Also somewhat causing the price to be a little wild.Right here one store is selling reference gtx 780 for IDR 10m, while you can already get an MSI Lightning at that price on another store.

I am building a new PC soon, but I think I will wait for 9000 series first, it will knock the price down at the very least. That is unless the store give me an offer I cannot refuse.
