Got any word of advice that might help me out?

thats not what im talking about

HDD usually lasts 3-5 years and it gets slower as you go along
idk about processor but if you raise your voltage too much its going to kill its lifespan by a few years

i believe that's true about the HDD, but what other option do you got? SSD is too expensive and are not as big as i want them (2t).
There is a reason why i am not going for the stock GPU fan and that's to lower the temperature when it's overclocked, if i'm able to keep the temperature low so don't i think overclocking are doing any major harm to it.

Overclocking does not harm your processor, raising the voltage of your processor does though
Also i was refering to you wanting your computer several years ahead :p

I am aware that if i want to keep it up to date so do i not have any other option than buying new parts. but i hope to be able to have it a good 4 to 5 years maybe.

btw, is it possible to use two 680 nvidia cards?

Depends what cpu you buy, your mobo has a 1155 slot for cpu so as long as the cpu u buy is 1155 then it should be fine.

I was thinking if the current CPU would be a problem if i put two 680 cards into sli, not if i could change CPU or not (sory 4 mah Englis).

But thanks anyway for the reply Razz

Noooo don't buy the death stalker! I just tested it yesterday at a shop and its keys are just baaaad (think of shittier laptop keys). Also I think you need more than a Ssd, get a hdd as well cuz 128 gb ain't gonna last u long.
