Looking to get a new gaming PC, first in a while. Money no object.

My main thought is whether to get a cheaper build that will last for 'x' amount of years, then buy or upgrade to a new one as things progress.

Or, just go all out and buy something that will last for a long time to come.

I am not opposed to spending a lot of money as long as it evens out in the long term. I am just wondering which would offer better value in that sense.

I get the feeling it would be harder to predict what the future will bring so it may be a gamble with the uber-expensive one.

After we decide that we can decide on what to get!

You can spend all the money you want and you will still have a rig that will be outdated in 3yrs. Your better off building a reasonably priced rig that serves your needs now but is easily upgradeable.
If you want to remain at the cutting edge of computer graphics, you will have to upgrade your machine no matter what every few years.
