Looks like a very good build there and it should be able run newer games, Maybe put an SSD in for your OS and program's to go on, 128GB-256GB should be good.

that shouldn't be a problem. it's an up to date med end gaming card.
you are able to play this generation games on high-ultra (depending on the game) and a year from now properly still on high with the exception of some more heavy games 1 year from now.

I would go with a current gen FX chip such as the FX-6300. They made improvements to the architecture since the last generation.

Is there anyway I can up this new build enough to run next gen games for 2 years?

well in that case a better GPU will do wonders.
a GTX 770 is a fully unlocked GK104 chip were your GTX 760's GK104 has some locked transistors and cuda cores.

i'll recommend a GTX 770 (have one my self) if you don't want to spend whatever a GTX 780 cost

still 2 years are a long time. don't expect to play the most heavy games in 2 years on max settings with a 770
