If you got the lower end parts from a few years ago, yes it may be iffy to get now. Since you are looking at almost top of the line parts, those are a lot better to run for longer. If you had a Pentium with a 1030 video card, yes it may be not so good to get now, a 1070 is a fast card, and will be considered a fast card for a while.

Good to hear. I was just a bit concerned because the cpu is from 2015 and the gpu from around 2016 and you know that technology degrades almost as quick as food xDDD
