Right so i have been doing a bit of a debate in my own head about how much longer my computer will last me , and i came up with 1-2 years but i need the input of some other people as well. i play quite a few demanding games and i am currently not having any problems with them.

My specs are as follows:

i5 3450 3.1ghz
Gigabyte GA-P67-B3-UD3
6GB of ram
XfX HD6870 black edition
XFX HD6870 Normal edition
Samsung spinpoint 1tb
Hiper 880w power supply
Cooler master Centurion 5ii case

With that kind of system you can last AT LEAST 1-2 years just like you said.

i'd get a 3570k cause then it'll last much longer cause overclocking, and don't get last gen GPUs buy new ones, last longer.

I agree with your with what you expect if you don't already have one I would suggest an SSD for your Os and games best upgrade I ever made.

Odds are that you will have upgrade fever long before the pc isnt actually able to play the games you want. LoL. I plan on gpu's about every two years, depending on release schedules.
