Quite a long while. But seriously there is really no way to tell the future, but I would say 4 years before anything really comes out that eats your memory that bad. Of course I cannot predict the future, but the minimum requirement for most games these days is still much lower than 8gb.

for example bf3 minimum is 2gb, but I the most ive seen it use is 5gb.
