Let alone all the other components people swap out on a regular basis.
What? What kind of shit is this? Good god, the myth that PC gamers keep upgrading their hardware each week has got to stop. Hardware for the PC is no longer as expensive as it was and it lasts a long time now, seeing that most PC games are ports that don't require a lot of power to run.
Let's also take into account that if PC gamer held the same quality standards that console gamers do the hardware would be even MORE inexpensive. Building a computer that tops out at 30fps with crap textures (which most ports have) is cheap as hell.
