On top of all that, they can't charge very much without making it more expensive than simply keeping a mid-range gaming rig up to date. ($500 a year can keep you perpetually in the mid-range, which is $42 a month approx.)

I'd go so far as to say $500/yr can easily keep you in the high-end, if you already have a good platform to work with (good case, monitor, sound card).

High-end meaning that every game is playable on max settings with a bit of AA (real AA, not the vaseline-effect shader ones).
Soon when we're @ 4000x2000 resolutions I dont think AA will even matter as much really..

Definitely - it depends on how much money you spent upfront. But you could just start at 500 bucks for the whole shebang and continue spending at most $500 a year (I actually spend WAY less per year on hardware for each of my LAN's individual machines) to keep playing your games at or close to maximum graphical settings.
