Hi, im looking to build a $1000-1500 casual gaming PC, my needs are very minimal and i'll most likely use it mainly as a media PC for web browsing in the living room while having the ability to casualy play low end games on steam. So my question is, would it be possible for a $1000-1500 quality custom built PC to last me 6-8 years? iam more than likely to quit playing games in 2 years, and use the media PC purely for 3hours of day of random net browsing or netflix after work! thanks in advance!!
EDIT: The games i'm currently playing are 2 low end steam games that ran perfectly smooth with my crappy 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5570 card so i most definitely do not need to upgrade for at least 6 years or so.
I currently do not have a build plan up yet since i bought my previous computer from CyberPowerPC. I've never owned a computer long enough to find out if they could last over 3 years so any comments and stories shared would be appreciated!
