Define "outdated"?

The 8000 series is two months away.... so..... two months give or take.
ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

It says it does..... Ultra Durable VGA materials: GPU Temperature 5%-10% down - Overclocking capability 10%-30% Up - Power Switching Loss 10%-30% down
Windforce 3X Anti-Turbulence Cooling with "Triangle Cool" Technology for maximum cooling performance at whisper silent operation.
Core Clock: 900MHz - Memory Clock: 5000MHz
Features DVI-I/HDMI/2x mini-Displayport outputs with HDCP protection.
Supports AMD Eyefinity/EyeSpeed/CrossFire/Avivo HD technologies. With almost 2 years old I kind of feel cheated.

it'll probably outlast next-gen consoles until it won't be able to even start up new games anymore on lowest of low settings... provided it doesn't die in that time.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/
