How often do you build a PC?

IGNIQ writes: "Personally I feel a decent investment in a $1,000 PC should see you through at least a few years of gaming, without having to be thinking about upgrades. But then of course there are a plethora of different desires and expectations out there, particularly when it comes to PC gaming.

What about you. Do you upgrade every time Intel blows their horn with the announcement of a new CPU, or whenever Nvidia or AMD announce a relatively beefier graphics card? Or are you more realistic and conservative with your PC buying budget?"

The story is too old to be commented.

when it really really sucks, like i cant play the most recent games, on low, if that happens i have a base which is all the components in the computer therefore all i have to do is change the graphics card and im ok once again.

I'm still on Athlon 64 X2 and 9800GT. It still hauls ass, I get 45FPS average at 1920x1200 and most things set to med-high. Hopefully Bulldozer will be a compelling reason to upgrade.
