$2800 x99 gaming rig wanted!

I need a new computer that will excel in 1080p gaming and that will last for about four years. I am open to any suggestions, even Devil's Canyon builds. The main thing that I'm looking for here is longevity. I understand that my GPU will need to be updated every year or two, but I would like to have the CPU last four years. If a quad-core will last me four years and still run games just fine, then by all means I will accept quad-core parts lists. Thanks for the help guys!

with tech advancing like an explosion, i doubt ull be satisfied with ur current build in 4 years that ur planning to build.

id set a budget, then pick cpu/mobo/ram same price with doubled on the gpu if single as u can see in my build.

did u want X99 chipset? what do u have now?

I've made some major changes, and am now going with an AMD FX-6300 and Asus mobo just to hold me over until the release of Intel's Skylake chips and Z170 chipset. I currently am running a five year old Gateway laptop running on an AMD C50 Dual-Core :p
