    I try to hold off as long as I can before upgrading. my last pc lasted for 6 years using a Pent. 4 socket 478 w/geforce 7800 (agp)
    My upgrade wasn't much of an upgrade I kind of went cheap, and now I'm wishing I didn't since I wrote off. I purchased all of these Items from newegg in Jan of 2010
    Ga-ep45-ud3r 119.99
    antec 900 case 99.99
    radeon 4879 169.99
    intel quad q8400 169.99
    antec 650 truepower 94.95
    zalman 9500 39.98
    SB X-FI Titanium 99.99
    corsair dominator 4 gb 97.99
    win 7 pro 99.99
    WD blue 640 69.99
    total 1062.85 not including rebates somewhere totaling 100.00
    not bad considering I had to do a total upgrade. i suppose I could of use my old tower, but with all these new goodies, why? and like I said I wrote of the purchase, thx uncle Sam.
