I used to upgrade once every 2 years, at very least my graphics card but usually the whole rig. I haven't felt I needed an upgrade since 2007, even with my notebook with an 8600m. Sure not all games run great at full and I might have the scale back to medium-high setting, but there hasnt really been that jump in technology which warrants a massive upgrade. Arguably only cpu's and the only thing being pushed anymore, it seems an nvidia 8800 would still work great for most applications.
