Will this card last me a few years? I mean will it max games years from now?

I know its pricey, but the way i see it, if its able to max games for me @ 1080p for the next 3 or 4 years, then i think its a good investment.

Im gonna be upgrading from a 4890.

EDIT:

When i say max, i can live without maxing AA. Ive been playing with my 4890 without AA on all new games since 2010 so AA is not a big issue.

If i can turn everything else up then its no problem.

PC Hardware depreciates quickly in part because it becomes obsolete so quickly. Nobody here can answer that question because we don't have time machines. It is likely in ~4 years 1080p will be obsolete and 1440p or 4k will be the standard.

Personally I don't think it's worth it to buy top of the line hardware unless you have extra money to burn and want the performance edge today. Don't buy it for future proofing as something better could come out at any time.

I'm not sure it can even "max" games now if you count 16X AA and Tressfx

Hard to say, TC. With upcoming games like Watch_Dogs, it's only a matter of time before cards like these begin to struggle.

Its a fun card. im using a 1440p monitor though and if you do then do not expect to max games. i mean you can max most, but at like 30-50 fps

Yea i just bought a 60 in Vizio for gaming recently and its max is 1080p. So ill be using this for a couple years, unless 4k monitor get 'cheap'.

I just dont want the 'hassle' of upgrading for awhile, i just want to get a good card and not worry about FPS with little or no AA and max games for awhile.

It's a classy meaning uncapped voltages. I suggest getting a Kraken G10 with it and some AIO radiator (Kraken 40 will work fine). Overclock the heck out of it. Read about how to do it first though of course.

I kinda want to get the card this week, but will be very disappointed if it drops in price very soon. I can no longer game on my 4890 since the fan died, its getting too hot now.

What's the rest of your system? You can't slap a card like this into any system and expect it to work well. Given you had a 4890, I'm skeptical you have anything above a first gen I7 at best.
