This looks great, how upgradeable would this be in the future. How long do you think it would last until i would have to do something?

The CPU can be upgraded till they dont make anymore Kabylake or Skylake Processors, GPU can be upgraded anytime. and maybe a month because of dust buildup. but thats minor upgrades, if you want the latest, wait till a year from now
