I'm looking for any advice people can give me on a build I thinking of starting. I want to game on the highest setting possible and would prefer it if the computer would have a life span of around 5 years with minimal upgrades done to it. Here is what I've come up with.

Might as well get the 3590k for only $10 more. I also suggest investing in a cpu cooler. If you're not planning on overclocking I would suggest the cooler master evo 212.
