When you do decide its time for an upgrade. Go with the i5 6600k and a better CPU cooler. Everything else is fine in this build especially that 380x. Should last you a good 3-4 years

That was exactly what I would have built except add an SSD and and take out the CPU cooler as its just an non-k i3.
