By all means see what the gaming folk say about the spec but of-course how long it will last depends on what future developments come along, which is a million dollar question. Unless you mean hardware, which could go pop any time.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Please explain what you mean when you ask how long will it last. Do you mean before it becomes outdated or do you mean before something goes wrong with it? I don't really think there is a sensible answer to either of those but at least if folk knew what you meant it could help them try to answer.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

My #9 was for others. I can't say any more personally. They way I see it nobody can predict how long hardware might last because it can go wrong any time - even when brand new. Maybe someone else will have something to add.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
