I know there is no such thing as a future proof system but I would like to make this system as much future proof as possible. While I would like to make this system somewhat of a high-end, money do matters, so for example: in case of a RAM I would like to buy 8GB for now and when the time is right I would like to buy another 8GB and add to it.

While I would like to play games I would not like to make this system solely for games.

I know absolutely nothing about CPU casing, Graphics Card and PSU's.

I would like to use this system to build applications and Games for Android, web development and play some heavy games which will be released in the future which I can't already play on my i5 system with intel hd4000.

Applications I would like to use almost daily: Eclipse, Android emulator, Photoshop, Illustrator, Blender, GTA IV (V if it ever gets released ), Notepad++, Firefox, Chrome, Virtual PC, Visual Studio, Action/RPG games( I haven't played anything other than CS Source but would like to test some heavy games like Skyrim and stuff).

Operating System I am planning to use: Windows 7, Ubuntu, and Mac OS X(haven't decided the version yet) on Multi-Boot.

I would like to buy a 23 inch screen with 1920 x 1080 Pixels and maybe later add a couple more monitors to it or get a 32 inch Television instead.

What I have found online: This is just what I think I should have:

Okay, so here is the final list: (please note this is the price I am getting in India, where I live) If you find anything wrong with this, please let me know.

G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) 1600 Mhz - $110 Cooler Master Enforcer - $123 Logitech G300 Gaming USB 2.0 Mouse - $25 TVS-e Champ Media Plus - $13 Asus 23 inch VX238H-W LED Backlit LCD Monitor - $250 Creative SBS A520 5.1 Speaker - $55 Western Digital 2tb Hard Diskdrive (wd20ezrx) - $100 Corsair RM650 PSU - $134 ZOTAC GTX 770 - $440 Intel Core i7-4790K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.40 GHz) - $400 GIGABYTE Z97 - $250-300

Possible future upgrades: Additional RAM, Graphics card.

...and Mac OS X...

Windows 7 and Ubuntu is unlikely to have any issues with listed hardware but better make sure about OSX.
