No well it depends on if you want to keep playing at highest setttings and stuff. You may be able to play at highest settings with games that come out within the next year or two. After that you'll have to go down to medium settings most likely and maybe even play at a lower resolution. 3 years from now you'll want to upgrade your rig, unless you want to play at medium to low settings. And in Five years I bet the games won't even run on your rig in low settings, and if they do you'll have to run at 800x600 (i hate low res).
