When do I replace the mobo?

I've had the same PC for a number of years now, replacing the video card when needed, but I've never really replaced anything else. Never really felt like I needed to. My computer runs fine, there's no slowness, but I am curious, of all the parts in my computer, the motherboard is the oldest. I think it's six years old now. When do I replace it? How will I know when it's time?

if your mobo dies your computer will die so that is how ya know. Honestly it should last you until your next cpu upgrade.

Lies we all know it costs $800 a month to be a pc gamer. Exactly every 30 days a component explodes in your pc and creates a black hole that sucks your money away.

The most common reason why people replace a functional motherboard is because they're upgrading their CPU and the current motherboard does not support the new CPU.

I don't think I've ever experienced a failed motherboard. Generally, I only replace the motherboard due to CPU socket changes.
