When I played alot of games, I upgraded year after year. Usually just a new vid card or more memory, and every 2 years on the CPU side. I can tell no difference between my Socket 939 3800+ X2 and my Q6600 unless Im doing something CPU intensive, like converting large batches of WAV files to FLAC or converting DVDs to x264. FWIW, Ill probably upgrade my main system later on this year to an i7 system.
