First proper gaming PC.

Would like to upgrade the CPU and GPU when Vega / Ryzen come out as the r9 290 does have thermal throttling issues.

Well, at least the video card is AMD.

The i5 is a good processor. Just know that come time to go Vega/Ryzen, you'll be able to use your case, PSU, and HDD (assuming the OS is on the SSD).

You'll need a new motherboard, RAM, and of course CPU/GPU when the upgrade comes, in addition to needing to reinstall your operating system. Do yourself a favor and move anything needed from your SSD to your HDD beforehand, because it'll get wiped.

Cheers on the PC. Don't be afraid to ask anyone here if you need some advice or assistance.

Uh? Uh? Correct me if I am way wrong but shouldn't this have an AMD processor to be somewhat called and AMD PC? With this logic my builds should be call NVidia PC's. +1 for the GPU and cojones to call this an AMD PC.
