You can find a table showing the expected viability for different vegetable seeds here http://growingtaste.com/storage.shtml.
The list may be a bit conservative. For example my experience is that cucumber, pepper and tomato seeds will have good germination considerably longer than shown in the table. But you can get a good idea about what to expect.
