Here's what I have:

CPU: i5-3570K
RAM: 8GB DDR3 (2 4GB sticks)
GPU: GTX 660 Ti
PSU: Corsair 600CX
MB: ASUS Z77 Extreme 4

I play at 1080P at all times so I'd like to sill be able to. I can play Crysis 3 with everything maxed.....except AA lol. But not sure if gaming that are about to start coming will be more demanding.

Should be fine.
You may want a new GPU in a couple years but for now you should be set.
Have you accepted Raspberyl as your loli and savior?

What about me!

i5-2500k @ 4.0ghz (can do at least 4.4, but I got to 4.0 on stock voltage and don't want to increase heat!)
8gb RAM
GTX 570


Going to get either a gtx 770, hd7970, or r9 280x/r9 290 when details come out Oct. 3rd. Think I will be fine for the next 2-3 years?

I overclocked the CPU to 4.2 GHZ. Seems to be my limit because sometimes when I go to 4.4 GHz I may get the blue screen or something, depending on what I'm playing.
