How often do you upgrade your desktop speakers?

I haven't upgraded mines, but I probably will on my next complete upgrade. It's only better usually if you're willing to shell out more money,

I don't remember the last time I've used desktop speakers. Maybe 10 years ago? When I used to use actual speakers, I just hooked it up to my home receiver. My setup though is having the computer as the main entertainment center, I hook up my TV in dual monitors above my monitor and use it for video while I surf the web on the monitor, so I can use the receiver for the audio or the TV speakers or a set of headphones. Then I can just switch the inputs on the TV between computer, cable, and PS3 ( or as I call it, the expensive blu ray player ).
You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

I only have basic speakers and invest in a headphone instead. They barely get any use.

I think it was two to four years between each upgrade before.

2.0 -> 2.1 -> 5.1 -> 7.2

Next upgrade would alone be 2500 with a new AV-receiver for a 11.2 surround setup, and maybe 1500-2000 for the additional loudspeakers.

But before that, I need my own house built first so I can have the quality room for such a setup.

Just when they brake.

Do they usually go too fast?

I went from a Klipsch 4.1 to a Logitech Z5500's

After that, never bothered to upgrade.

Currently using Bose Companion 5, I have been using it for 2 years now. Previously using Altec Lansing VS4221 which I have used for 6 years or so since my university years.
In addition, I have a pair of Thonet & Vander Kugel as a makeshift ipod/3DS 'dock' (well, not a dock at all)

I guess I upgrade because I am starting not to get satisfied with the sound. I used to be a basshead, but then, I took an arrow in the knee, i mean my ears get better and I want something more accurate and not boomy.

My next upgrade? Probably a DIY home theater with bookshelf speakers and external amp. $2500 perhaps? I don't know the price.
