The only disadvantage is the power consumption and DDR3 RAM compatibility. Price to performance ratio is great, really worth.

I got the CPU with a 1050 ti. It's currently inside a HP 6200 MT Pro. I am planning to get a LGA 1155 mobo with a new case and psu… Is it better to save for a better build or will the CPU last long enough for the coming years?

Honestly I think this CPU is perfectly fine yet, but as always it depends on the kinds of games you play. It might be a good idea to start thinking about it, but I wouldn't be too worried, and if at some point you do feel like it's holding you back moving to a 3rd gen should be good for a while like a 3550

I would say yes. I had a core 2 quad Q9550 OC to 3.1 and now own an i5 2400. Great CPU has no problems running games paired with a 970.
