How 'OLD' is your pc?

not all the parts are bought and put together at same time, so how would you determine age of yor pc?

 

eg I upgraded GPU 4yrs ago, cpu 2yrs ago, add hardrive a month ago etc.

sounds difficult lol

the question is does it do what you want it do?

 

If its doesnt then its going to feel out dated.

 

As for doing upgrades along the way lots of people do this so it does break the bank. It only hurt the pocket when there is a big change in the chipsets.

I'd say from the time you got your PC determines the age. I built mine back in 2014. Only upgraded my GPU from a AMD 7950 to an Nvidia 1060 6GB.

The oldest components in my build are my Crucial M550 SSD (bought in 2014), motherboard (nov 2017) and Intel 600p NVMe drive (nov 2017). Everything else is newer, the newest components being the V550 PSU and Corsair H115i AIO.

I have had my computer for many years, but the oldest main part is the mobo, being a z170 and had it since 6th gen. I upgrade something in it at least once a year though, most recently adding a m.2. I don't really count HDDs in this though as I have no idea how old they are. 

The oldest part in any of my systems that I am currently running is probably my i7 930 being from 2010.

Imo, the "age" of a computer is determined by the technology it uses, so it's basically up to the mobo and CPU combination.

CPU limits the technology it can use (eg. RAM) in a logical way, and the mobo (eg. PCIe version and slots, SATA version and slots, RAM slots, etc.) in a more "physical" way.

The combination of these parts basically will determine what you can use, and "how old" your system is.

Tho' you can always upgrade, but a mobo will force you to use a specific CPU socket, and so on.

so apparently theres no simple answer to integrate the parts history

"The oldest part in it is ____ years, newest is ______", or just list the main parts and their age.

These days I'd say the GPU is probably the biggest indicator of age, you're gonna notice a 4 year old GPU more than a 4 year old CPU generally speaking.

 

Also whether you've got a HDD or an SSD

 

I've got a 4770k, but I've got a fast SSD and a 1080 so it feels new and fast.

I say from the time you put the CPU in the socket & built it the first time. The. You have “subsequent” lives. 

 

IE “i bought an i5, voodoo & motherboard in 2000. Then in 2003 I upgraded the GPU to an NVIDIA. So it’s from 2000 but rebuilt in 2003. I gave it new life again when I got an i7 in 2005.” 

 

(Yeah yeah I know when the i series came out.)

My PC is a mix of 2014 and 2018. 970, an older SSD and HDD with upgraded CPU, RAM and motherboard. I don't think it's brand new but it sure isn't old either.

Oh, and the case is from 2011, so there's that.

My stuff:

Maybe 2013 or 2014.  I'm still rocking my 4670k.  Only major change was replacing my gtx 780 with a 1080 about a year ago. This computer replaced a Phenom 2 965 system which I still use a secondary PC once in a while.  I'm guessing the AMD PC goes back to 2008 or 2009?  I honestly can't remember.  I might look at getting something with 6 - 8 cores in the next couple years but this thing is still serving me very well.

It's low-end Lenovo laptop from 2013, 4th gen mobile i3 with 4GB of RAM. I've been using it for 3 years. I upgraded the storage to an SSD 3 months ago, basically the only upgrade I did to it.

I have to use duct-tape to hold it together (because someone lost the screws), and the battery is dead. But it still works I suppose. Too poor to build a desktop.

Ryzen 2600 build, 3 months old. 

 

Before that, a 2011 MBP.

 

I did repurpose my 30" ACD though; it's pretty neat.

Oldest component in my PC is the GPU, GTX 780 reference.

 

PC itself has only been together for 10 months.

 

You can really just take your pick of how you want to measure it, I usually just use the date assembled to determine age of the system and then break it down into individual parts as needed.
