It will last you another 9 months, 3 days, 17 minutes and 21 seconds exactly.

It will last you as long as you deem it sufficent. I was quite happy with my Ti 4200 and the 6800 was just a real treat ontop of that. When your not able to play your games at a enjoyable level ( To your discrection ) its time to upgradt.

Should last you at least 2 very solid years. I kept my Ti4200 for 2+ years, from July 2002 to September 2004, and it's still a decent card today, plays any new game out there at 800x600. Now I've got a 6800GT. I'm going to keep it for at least another 2 years and this card is still going to be very strong near the end of its life. Just like sgio2 said, I was still very happy with my Ti4200 even near the end of its life, and I'm going to be just as happy with my 6800 GT (probably even more).

you have any other hardware to go with that? How much RAM? how long it will last depends on more than just the video card and processor

Exactly. I had my Ti4400 for a year and a half before getting a GT. And when the CPU started slowing, I OCed my RAM and bumped the CPU up too. However, I think this machine's got another year max. It sucks being a college student. :(
