Many of these posts are just such utter nonsense. Many many people WILL use the same CPU 5 years from now. Today's current-gen performance levels far exceed what the average person is doing with their computer. Most people just AREN'T avid gamers or do anything in particularly that prompts them to upgrade every 2-4 years. They use the system until a failure (and some tech's advice) encourages them that it is more cost effective to upgrade/replace than just repair to keep what they had.
uhhh, your in the WRONG Forum man. This is an E-N-T-H-U-S-I-A-S-T forum. This ain't your grandmas forum.
This place is about performance and wringing out the most out of every component you have whether its a $500 or $5000 rig, it don't matter. People here want the most they can get out of what they got. They ask questions about what works or doesn't and how to do it. Thats all.
You best get back to your knitting and leave these young folks alone...
