    I know the phrase 'future proofed' is a bit difficult to quantify when it comes to PCs but i want a system that is reasonably well spec'd for the next couple of years anyway and with a decent foundation to be tweaked as and when required.

    Any views on this setup? I know it's cheaper to buy bits off the shelf and build yourself but i haven't got the time or desire to do that, the family are buying this system between us as we have a relative who's very very ill and he loves PC gaming.. his current system is about 10 years old so a new system will really give him some pleasure.

    This is the spec for the Chillblast Fusion Firebird which got very good reviews recently, obviously the bits can be tweaked for extra cost. Out budget is upto around 1300.

    Intel Core i7 3770K "Ivy Bridge" overclocked to up to 4.6GHz
    Akasa Nero 3 Silent CPU Cooler
    Asus P8Z77-V Motherboard
    16GB 1600MHZ DDR3 RAM
    GeForce GTX Kepler 680 Video Card
    120GB Intel 330 Series SSD Drive
    2000GB SATA Hard Disk
    LG Blu Ray Combi Drive
    Corsair 600W Power Supply
    Windows 8 64bit

    I assume upgrading the gfx card to 4GB is a wise move?

    Thanks in advance!
