processor i7-3820
motherboard MSI X79A-GD65
Memory Kingston 2x 8GB ddr3
2400 mhz
Graphics card MSI GTX670
SSD Kingston hyperx ssd 240gb 3k
hard disck wd 1tb blue
Optics lg dvd-rw
case cm storm stryker
power supply cooler master silent pro gold 1000w

OK. This is the suggested configuration
I want a high-end PC that will run current and future games very well
Mainly I plan to play Black Ops 2 on max settings and I will play it a lot
Will this PC be able to run 24/7 without getting overheated?
And will this PC still be good in like 3 years?

PLEASE TELL ME WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE
IF YOU THINK SOME COMPONENT SHOULD BE CHANGED TYPE THAT

Thanks for help!

To get the best help is it best to make your choices into links to the item so members can get the details of each item.

I would take a Samsung 830 SSD in lieu of the Kingston. http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....6820147164

New Egg has been know to run out of an item and mark it discontinued, then restock it. Can't argue about the reviews, though.

Yeah put 2 and 2 together.

Bad Reviews plus many returns = Discontinue.

Good Reviews plus high demand = Reorder when out of stock.

No current company beats their Data Base Model or Business System.

Their system is Updated Continuously in REAL TIME which is a wonder to behold in its' itself.

I've seen products get discontinued and later brought back. This one, for example. It was discontinued back in June and is back now.

Perhaps Revision 1.02 of that MB as Revision 1.00 or 1.01 appeared to have many issues which could not be fixed with Bios Updates.

There are many unknown agreements and alliances between product manufacturers and retail vendors.

Always BEST to read as much Hardware News as possible on a daily basis. :)

I personally would do Socket 1155 Build and save some money.
May be something like this.

Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H Is Good. :)

Gigabyte GA-EP35C-DS3R is old and has PCI Slots. :(

@ Rick. I'm hardly a guru of any kind, let alone MBs (especially considering all the questions I've been asking; and there will be more). That post I made had a serious typo (oopsie, sorry). It should have been "aren't", not "are". The P8Z77-V Deluxe is the MB I'm probably (99% probability) going to get early next year.
