As the title says, out of curiosity, how many times have you changed GPU in the past 6 months?

It's been 6 for me, in order, going from oldest to current;

XFX 8800GTS 640Mb
Force3D HD4870 512Mb
PNY GTX470 1280Mb
Powercolour HD4870x2 2Gb
XFX HD5870 1Gb
Asus GTX480 1536Mb

God knows how I managed to go through so many, that 1 GPU a month so far haha. All started when I wanted to upgrade from my 8800, got a 4870 really really cheap, then bought a GTX470 it ran too hot and loud so I sold it, got a 4870x2 for free, then sold it and bought a brand new 5870, used it for a couple of weeks, then ended up upgrading my entire rig and got a gtx480.

I've gone through 0 changes in the last year and a half. It is completely beyond me why you changed out 6 times in 6 months. I suppose it deserves congratulations
