Previously I've taken the same case, and upgraded the parts I wanted to change out... so at first all I changed was the RAM, then I changed the CPU, then I changed the GPU 2 times, then the motherboard died and I had to go build a new one so I kept the GPU, PSU and Case and bought a new motherboard CPU and RAM and hard drives...I guess i've had the same DVD drives/burners since 2004 but after I install the OS I barely use the drive anymore.

There is no 'average' here or any common ground... it could be "everything but the case" or it could be "just one part".

Just built this one. I didn't have any recycled parts because the parts from my previous PC were ancient.

I usually keep my mouse, keyboard, and monitor. However, on occasion, I'll keep my case, power supply, and/or hard drive.

The past number of systems I've built for myself, I've sold my old computer off to my parents, so there really isn't much I can keep.

I think my next system I build in probably 5 years or so, I might keep my power supply and case along with mouse, keyboard, monitor. Hard to say though. 5 years is a long time. I think my system will hold up nicely for that long or longer.
