Let alone all the other components people swap out on a regular basis.
Considering you can build a gaming PC for around $400 that will run everything on the market, I'm continually surprised at the silliness that I read here.
My last PC I was playing on lasted 4.5 years. This one will last ~3yrs, I might swap out a HDD but none of the other hardware really matters because I don't need to play at 2700x1920@8xAA. Actually I still play games in the 1024x760-1280x1024 resolutions because that's just fine.
