I just built my first one and I plan on just upgrading parts as needed. I have no intent on starting from scratch.

I will build a new PC until my motherboard can't handle it anymore.

I upgrade what I can, but changing the processor ends up with changing the motherboard and sometimes the RAM. I consider that most of the way to a new PC.

I just buy a new pre-built one when the old one breaks. I'm lazy.

I'm always just adding stuff to my rig. It costs a bit more this way but as a result I don't have to completely rebuild my PC all at once at some point.

It's simple, I upgrade my graphics card pretty often but I don't upgrade my motherboard until I need a new processor. I try to hold onto that decision until there's a new windows out, so I can install everything new together and keep it until there's a new set of mobo/processor/windows. Saves all the hassle of installing separately.

For example, my last upgrade was from Nvidia 780 mobo / Q6600 processor / Vista -----> Z77 mobo / 3770k / Win 7.

My next set of upgrade will probably happen with windows 9 unless it sucks.
