Building a relatively future proof rig

This was my strategy of building a PC with a long life capacity. I have an old HP Multimedia PC and I LOVE the case with removable hard drive slot and sleek design. I've stripped it completely down to barebones and recently ordered an ASUS Sabertooth Z87 to use as my foundation. I was planning on using as many of the original parts in the interim as I troubleshoot the new parts. I was debating about which 4th Gen Intel Processor to use to be cost effective. I'm sure this motherboard will support a high end processor down the road without creating a bottleneck. Also, will be starting with 2 8 gig Corsairs ( will add 2 more later ), a solid state hard drive to save on power and heat, and the mother of current video cards, the NVIDIA Titan. The idea is to save on some parts and let the Titan take up the brunt of the load. Also, when the Titan is available as maybe a 2 year old card at half the cost or less, I can set it up in SLI to amp up the computer further. Obviously my next purchase is the power supply, so I could use help estimating the watts needed for upgrades. This rig needs to be fast. I'll be running Oculus Rift games at high settings. Thoughts?
