as long as your playing games the way you want it will still be good.

This exactly. Gamers have this thing that they need to know if their rig is old or not. A PC needs upgrading when you see yourself struggling with most of your games. By struggling I mean turning down graphics and still the framerate suffers. When this happens, upgrade time.

You'll be good until the next gen consoles come out because they will smoke even the best single gpu system out today. That could be a year or two from now.

your GPU is good but at what resolution you game at but as for CPU you should upgrade it to Phenom II X4 965 which are very cheap now & will be a good upgrade from your current cpu aswell last longer.

honestly i have no idea how you could say that next gen consoles specs arent out yet but as for smoking even the best single GPU out today is out of the question.

It's very similar to mine. I assembled my DIY in 2009 which originally came with an HD 5770. I did a midlife upgrade to the GTX 560 Ti. So far, it's still okay although we'll see in a couple of months how it handles Crysis 3. 2013 is the 4-year mark. So, it's time for a new PC anyway.

True, but I'm sure you can run through most games easily with those specs, listed in your sig that is.

I think the point he's trying to make is that some of the best games don't need a high end PC.
