It kinda depends on what kinda person you are. If you HAVE to have every setting in every game cranked to the max, then maybe like 2-4months. If you are ok with not having every game cranked up, them it should last you a couple years.

Excuse me, but your system is 1337 |<iC|< @$$. And don't double post: it's stupid. Especially after only 1.5 hours.
