Around $500 unless it's a major upgrade.

Around $1400 this year. But I haven't bought any parts for like 4 years now. So $1000 seems right per year.

I usually spend about $750 yearly on updates and about $1500 on a new build every 2 years. This is my new build year so sometime around June I'll start collecting parts.

20 Bucks says its Cog.

under $1000 for me. Usually around $200-400, though I will spend much more than that every few years for new RAM / CPU / Motherboard (IE next year or the year after with Nehalem).
