    For me, every 1 to 1.5 years. Last year change to AMD 64. Now thinking of getting a SFF. Maybe a AOpen EZ-482 or Shuttle SN25P or ST20G5. Will try to put 2 to 4 2.5 HDD and run in RAID 1. This is to try to keep the weight below 5kg. If have $, may go for AMD 64 x2.

    My last upgrade frm G3 iMac to G4 iBook is like 6yrs inbetween.

    Average major upgrade path is usually 6yrs.
    Minor upgrades would be like... once every 2yrs?

    Hard to say, once I get my system up I normally upgrade only when necessary (Often not necessary) or the system cannot coup with what I am going to do (also not likely) or when the system is giving me alot of problems. So I would say minor upgrade 3 mths - 5 years.

    Minor/Major components/bargains - depends.

    Major parts (leap frog to another new platform supporting new devices) - 2 years+

    Most of my parts are 2nd hand thrown out by tech junkies like klose.. insisting on having the latest all the way - hell as long as it works and performs up to my expectations w/o any problems. I'll just use it. (then again, of course not turtle speed lar!)

    Now I remember why I upgrade my PC every 2-3 years, use to be playing quite a lot of games (now no more so free, miss those days). So upgrade the PC to meet the smooth gaming requirement. So I guess I won't be upgrading as frequent now??? (But now kena the BBB virus, how?)

    Or I upgrade when my PC parts broke down, as sometime it seem not cost effective in terms of replace the same thing while there are faster/better things on the market.
