Very unlikely. The CPU would probably be okay (that's not for sure though, times are changing), but I seriously doubt a 1070 will hold up medium settings in 3-4 years. 

 

People usually do an upgrade every two years or so, and sell the old hardware. 

Make sure to quote or tag me (@JoostinOnline) or I won't see your response!

7700k should be fine.  1070 might age a bit in the next few years.

 

1080p on high settings isn't overly demanding.  ultra settings offer very diminished returns.

 

also depends on frame rates.  60 fps, sure.  100 fps, youll want a new gpu eventually

Be nice to each other boys and girls. And don't cheap out on a power supply.
