Default Re: How long will this last?

That is a monster setup and I would love to have that. It may be good for now, but just think 2-4 years down the road when new stuff comes out. I remember back when the geforce ti cards were out in the early 2000's and the Athlon XP were out for the very first time. A couple years later, that technology is scrap and now comes the new 6600, 6800 performance series and the very new 7800 series cards. CPU quickly advanced over to the Athlon 64 in no time flat. Time is short and technology changes fast.

Best advice is get a decent system and modify as you go.

That's quite close to what I'm doing. Though it's like there always is a new part I need to buy. And I usually don't buy the best product there is, I buy something which let's me run the newest games for a while and then buy a new one. This way I don't have to spend too much money at one time, and the total cost is about the same.
