X5675 on the X58 platform as my daily driver with 24GB of ram and a 2700k @ 4.8 with a 980Ti @ 1500 as my gamer.

No need to upgrade, that'd just be spending money....For the sake of spending money.

I'm on a 2600k @ 4GHZ & an RX 480 8 GHZ card. I'm coming off long term use of an AMD 1055T & RX 290 card machine, so this computer is great to me, certainly won't be changing anything until this one can't play the latest games.

The core of my system is still the same from when I first built it back in early 2013. That is 3770K @ 4.4ghz, Sabertooth Z77 & 16gb DDR3 RAM. Been acouple GPU upgrades (GTX680 to 780 to 980) and 1 case/colour scheme overhaul. No plans on upgrading CPU just yet, maybe in another year or two. 1080ti and monitor upgrade first though

i5-750 @ 3.5ghz from late 2009... winner!

graphics card went from 4870 -> 6950 -> 650ti (the 6950 was dying) -> r9 280x.

definitely no more graphics card upgrades for this rig, the next upgrade will be a system.

X58 and X79 platforms. No hurry to upgrade the X58. Runs all the games I play like a champ with the R9 390

E5 1620 v3

I think I got it in 2014 or 2015.

Paired with 64GB of DDR4 and a pair of Intel 750 NVMe SSDs - can't really fault it performance-wise

Nope! I have a Q9550 from 2008 that is still running great, overclocked to 3.4ghz. DDR2 RAM and everything. It's a beast.

I only upgraded from the I7-860 in my sig in the past month. I've had it since late 2009 from memory. I was surprised it kept up for as long as it did.

Dell XPS-8700.
I7-4770, 24Gig RAM.

According to the invoice, purchased 26/9/2013: that's just shy of 4 years ago. Hell I didn't think it was that long ago!!!

I've doubled the size of the SSD (M-Sata 250 to 500 - the old one suddenly shat itself a month or so ago.) Put a GTX970 when they became available.
Hanging onto it for a while, as anything new will be Win10 .

I've no desire to upgrade either: this one still seems plenty fast enough. Then again my daily driver home office machine is a 10 year old rebuilt Q6600 You'd be surprised at how well they've held up, if the OS is tweaked enough.
