Subject says it all.
3 1/2 years since my last upgrade, but the oldest part in it is nearly 8 years old.

Less than 3 months
Less then a year...
<2...like 1 3/4...im building a new one after christmas tho gonna sink alot of cash into it too
Last object installed?
Or..what? Mine is a less than 8 hours... Cuz I just got a 9800 PRO
newest part is barely a month old.... oldest part... well... erm.... 5 years?
pretty much 4 years old, but Im building my PC atm, just got my case and am moddin
Kinda hard to say, my P4 is less than 2 months but my 9800 is closer to 6 my Hd's are a yr or more, my DVD drive is over a yr maybe 2.
If you made enough changes to your system that WinXP would think it is a new system then count it as such.
Adding a video card alone would not count as a new system.
I hope we get enough voting here to actually see the trends.
This one might even be nice as a sticky?
my CPU/mobo are 26 months old (2year2month). I have older and newer parts, but the CPU/mobo is what I'd count.
and yes, I know that's pretty old by most of your standards
Audigy MP3+ = November 2001
Case = April 2002
Western Digital Drive = November 2001
CD-Burner = November 2001
Keyboard = November 2001
Mouse = December 2001
Speakers = April 2002
Floppy Drive = September 1997 (heh...floppy...floppy never changes. the beginning of the floppy happened pretty much as we expected. too many files, not enough space....)
Printer = July 2002
DVD Burner = May 2004
Maxtor Drive = February 2004
TV Card = May 2003
Motherboard = January 2004
CPU = January 2004

OCZ RAM = June 2004
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro = November 2003
Think that about covers it. Yay for Logitech, Antec, Western Digital, Microsoft, Nameless Floppy Drive Makers, ioMagic and Creative Labs!
As long as you feel your upgrades have made your system "new" then sure, works for me no matter what the upgrade is.
Even the video card upgrade could count for this if the system difference was major enough you 'felt' like you now have a new system.
Im easy. Just use your own judgement.
I'm geeky enough to give my computer a revision number. currently ver 2.85, it will become 3.0 when I finally upgrade the CPU/mobo.
Just 5 months old
6 months old and some parts are even newer... new upgrade in august when I go over to the states
Less than a year.
