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

Intel 3770k @ 4.4 GHZ | Galaxy GTX 770 SLi | 16 GB G.Skill Sniper | ASrock z77 Extreme4
