Considering I was a console gamer for ten years my numbers are lower. I would say around $1000.

But its more about my infatuation with hardware now that makes me buy not just the gotta run this game syndrome. I think my 260 will be fine for at least a year, and I would not have upgraded my 8800gt if I didn't need to.

If I stay a year behind in the upgrades and games they will all work and be fully patched, Drivers will be final, graphics card and games will be way cheaper etc, Like waiting till a movie comes on TV to watch it.
Its a good idea in theory at least.

I don't even want to really know, but from the lists of some of you guys I'd estimate at around $3000. Even though my 8800gtx handles most things fine at the moment, I want to get a 280gtx but I am holding off for now.

About $1800. Before that, I was a kid and could never afford a "gaming PC."
