    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

    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.
