Damn that's old. I remember building an XP1800 just around the time when Dark Ages of Camelot released. I eventually converted it to a dedicated HTPC but at some point I gave it away to someone.
I used to upgrade when big games came out. There hasn't been an MMO that's really interested me in years though, so the upgrades have been slower. I'm using a Q9450 (2.66 ghz quad core) with 8GB/ram and 10TB of disk space right now. I need to build a couple of new PCs soon, actually. One will be a new HTPC and the other will be a VMware/storage server.
