nah, i don't think you have to upgrade that much.. people w/ old socket 939 systems and an 8800 are doing just fine... though gpu i would say is needed to upgrade every year i guess.. which kinda sucks.. but i think its a good thing, because that just means that graphics are constantly getting better
