I have a i7 920 I built when they first came out late in 2008. So that makes this PC a little under 4 years old. Since them i've upgraded the ram from 6gb to 12gb and added a 80GB Boot drive. It still handles EVERYTHING I would want to do. I don't plan on upgrading this machine for another 4 years.
i got the same CPU. Not much to upgrade anymore.either. I did the ram upgrade to 12gb as you did. I upgraded my video card. hard drives work just fine, cant really think of anything else to upgrade.
back in 2008 i was going to get a blu ray burner drive, but i guess blu ray burning died out because you dont hear too much about it as you used to dvd burners and such.
i miss the days where there was something new to upgrade to every few months, but to be honest, crap back then broke often so you had no choice really. Went through so many cd rom drives and so on. Now stuff seems to last forever.
ARe you sure you'll be upgrading to a new PC in 4 years? Apparently by then we're all going to be mobile using tablets running Metro, </s>
