How long do you expect your rig to last?

Recommended Posts

Built mine in late 2016 / early 2017.


Hope it lasts 4-5 more years.

Computer's don't make errors. What they do, they do on purpose. By now your name and particulars have been fed into every laptop, desktop, mainframe and supermarket scanner that collectively make up the global information conspiracy, otherwise known as The Beast.


You just be careful. Computers have already beaten the Communists at chess. Next thing you know, they'll be beating humans.

I'm still running a 3550 and 8G.  apart from the GPU (which is about the only upgrade necessity), it is still running fine 8 years later.


From previous threads and polls the average enthusiast seems to build a new PC every 5 years and upgrade the GPU every 2-3 years.



QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Mine's lasted longer than most people thought it would. At the time I built my system everyone was hating on the fx 9590 every time I mentioned it. I also used an air cooler (NH-D15) which everyone was saying wasn't good enough for the 9590. The doomsayers were predicting that my pc would have overheated and failed within a few months.


2 years down the line and it's still working like new, without a fuss. 9590 is dangerous? I disagree! I know everybody is getting ready to get their weaponry out and their pitchforks arguing their '9590 will kill us all, blow up in flames and destroy everything else with it' hate, but my personal experience completely disproves the FX hate that it gets.

Built my system in late 2017. In it's current state, it will be lucky to last until new years. My next build tho? Planning on keeping it for the rest of my college education, sooo... 6 years, give or take.

How old are your current rigs, and how long do you expect them to last?

My PC is coming up for 10 months now, I've spent £1,000 on it so I hope to get the most out of it before it dies or there's something out there one day that is a worthy upgrade. It could be incremental upgrades such as CPU (which I can only go up to a i7-9700K...) or a new graphics card, but overall I'm happy to use this system for the next perhaps half decade or so depending on where technology goes.

My computers were built in 2011 and 2016 but they are upgraded constantly. 

The 2011 build replaced my 2006 build and the 2016 build replaced my 2008 build.

                    RTX 2080 ti



The 2011 build will probably get a another GPU and another 16gbs ram.  I have no date to replace it.

The 2016 build will get a 2tb SSD and it will be done with no replacement planned.

Probably upgrade to a new CPU and mobo in 2 years.


Current: i7 3770, GTX 1070, 8GB RAM.

It plays most games on Ultra settings, although my CPU is 7 years old.

previous system 

i7 920, asus p6t motherboard, 6 ( 3x2gb ) gb ddr3 memory, started with a gt card from around 2007/9 bought in 2007/8 the i7 was just released can't remember the year.
in 2014 i believe, the 970 was just released the gpu changed to a 770 2 gb, i believe had i spend 100 euro's more ( 700ish ) i still would have used the card by this day but i replaced the 770 early 2018 ( for a 1050Ti (planned on solely playing tbs games )) . In 2014 the psu was replaced too, to accommodate for the gpu ( be quiet something 700W ). Halfway 2018 replaced the i7 for a xeonx5650 and added extra ddr 3 memory + a new air cpu cooler. in october decided on placing an order in  China for a p6x58 asus board. And in december ordered a new system ( just for Christmas )
this system has known an yearly increasing amount of gaming-hours for the period of 10/11 years

Current system: r5 2600, 32 gb's of ram, aorus ultragaming x470, 1050Ti    
Life expectancy: 5 to 8 years
replacements: Gpu within 2 years

I bought it in 2010. Did some upgrade on it along the way like RAM, GPU and storage, but everything else is from way back then.

Since I'm expecting to buy a new computer by the end of the year, it will have lasted nearly 10 years.

Honestly my 6600k & 1070 are more than enough for what I do these days, so pretty much until components start to die. I rarely get time for gaming & I don't do a lot of media production or creative stuff any more. If anything my server gets more of a work out than my actual PC so I expect to be replacing that sooner than my rig & then i'll probably transfer my PC into my server & use that & get a new rig for shits & giggles.

My previous rig lasted as long as the AIO... which emptied itself all over the MoBo.


I bought it in 2009 and it gave up 9 years later in 2018 while still being a capable 1080p rig,


Mu current one has just 5 years planned but I will pass it down to my children to play with, take apart and rebuild etc.


I do plan to take my current rig up to 1440p from 1080p but only for the games I play now. I have no plans to buy new games for a few years as the games I have now are fine.

Mostly parts from 2010-11, gpu upgrade in early 2017. Does everything I want/need it to atm, can't see myself upgrading because I need to for at least another couple years. Want to upgrade that's a whole other story

My rig is from 2014/2015 with an i5 4440 and a gtx 970. I dont plan on upgrading the gpu but im noticing the cpu is slowing the system down these days (gpu usage is roughly 30-40% in cpu intensive games)


Though im going to get the Oneplus7 instead of upgrading my pc tbh

I built mine in late June 2014 when it was popular to buy the cheapest 4 core Intel i5 CPU with a x70 or x80 series Nvidia card for gaming purposes, but I am really feeling the CPU bottleneck happening with the latest releases like Division 2.


I'm planning on a new build later this year after the release of the Ryzen 3000 series, though my GTX1080 is still working great so I plan on keeping the GPU for now.

My only rig right now is an ASUS GL702VM. I did some upgrades to RAM and added an SSD since it was new in late 2016.  It’s a 17” gaming laptop with a GTX 1060, a quad core i7, 24GB DDR4, and a 1TB SSD. I always use it on a fan cooling pad because it heats up pretty good under load otherwise.


I expect it will last a long time but I’ve been thinking more and more that I should sell it and move back over to a tower. I could make do with a much weaker laptop since I really have no reason to need a gaming laptop.


My thing when I build towers is that I don’t skimp on the processor. The reason why is that you can upgrade other components later like RAM and a GPU, a CPU is much harder because in many cases it requires a complete motherboard replacement as well.


I’ve never bought anything less than an i7 in any of my computers I’ve built since 1st gen i7 and I have been happy with the results every time for years. I’ve done this for others as well and they’ve been very happy with it as well.

I have a rig with an i5-8600k and a 2070. I don't plan to upgrade for at least 3 years, and when I do it will just be CPU and GPU, don;t plan on a total rebuild for at least 6 years (unless I win the lottery or something).

I've built all of my PCs since the 386 days and I can be sure of one thing, at least in my case, the motherboards died in between 4 to 6 years. I had one or two boards that lasted 8 years.


I have audio, video and modem cards that still work but no longer supported.

When's Lunch?

Had mine about 3.5 years now. Will probably upgrade the ram, cooling and gpu one more time before i go to a new platform. 4790k, 16gbs 1600mhz ddr3 ram,  and an RX 480 right now. Maybe max it out to 32gb as my workloads can easily get surpass my 16 right now. Better cooling and i can OC  the cpu more, gpu not sure. Maybe that new vega thats being  teased coming in the fall.

I just upgrade the whole damn thing when I feel my parts are too old or the upgrade path is dead. LGA1150 chips and boards are pretty much almost used market exclusively these days, so I went Ryzen with an eye on the Zen2 later this year or picking up a higher end Zen chip for cheap once the price (hopefully) crashes

My current computer is like 3 months old, and will be getting an update once ZEN2 comes out provided it lines up with the rumours, my secondary computer is a 2009 macbook pro, which I keep trying to justify replacing but I upgraded to a ssd and the thing works great still so I cant justify it

I'm hoping for mine to last at least long enough for me to save up for a new one. It's a modified Dell T7400, to put in perspective how old it is.

Had an FX-8350 and HD 7950 built in 2013. Upgraded GPU to RX 580 in 2018, and Ryzen 2600/DDR4 system in February of this year.


Hopefully I won't have the urge to upgrade for a few years at the minimum. We all know how that works out though.
