I fully believe that this could last for at least 5 years. It should run very well for business and personal. And if you mean playing videos, or streaming videos, this will do that with no issue.

In Fact the graphics doesn't even have to be that high at all for what you want to do.

Your boss should be happy with this setup. What kind of Business is it?

It's a car business. He's just worried that it's not a name brand as to where he can just go to best buy and get it fixed. That's what he is worried about.

I'm sorry. it's for the car business. He's going to use it to buy cars from auction, maybe use word and excel, save TONS and TONS of pictures, videos here and there.

Best Buy will only attempt to sell you a new one after the first year or quote you an estimate to repair so high that you'll think you'll need a new one

Right. So, now my question is, is this computer good for at least 5 years and will do great for personal and business use. He's worried because it's not name brand.

I like non-named brands. These are "custom" built computers. They are usually customized for high performance, or low depending on what components you choose. But this computer should easily last 5 years. Especially if you just keep it updated and clean regularly. I've had a system somewhat similar to this. If you look in my profile and see my machine specs, you'll see that I have older components but same deal with i7, 16GB ram, and I have a 1GB graphics card GDDR5. Mine has lasted over 3 years now and it's still screaming fast and I usually run a lot of applications at once and usually never get even a lag.

I'd say you should be just fine with this setup

Looks like a good choice. Since it's for business you could get customized apps and branding on it to personalize it for your boss.
