So.. what kind of gaming rigs do you guys have? My custom build (haven't upgraded at all for a few years)
* AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz Black Edition Deneb Quad Core
* SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 6850 1GB (best gfx card I've ever had, by far)
* G.SKILL 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 RAM
* ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G Motherboard
* CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 PSU (this thing is a beast)
* Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s ( :( easily the worst part of my rig. Bought in '07)
also have a Acer 27'' widescreen HD monitor that I got for free from my work
My machine is getting a bit gray in the whiskers, but still does the job perfectly fine with pretty much any game out there as of now.

I've been planning on upgrading to a GTX 780 but **** keep coming up like buying new tires and glasses since i broke them; keeps getting delayed. Though the 7770 has been handling most of my games I play at high to very high settings.
We really won't start seeing the current gen of "solid" GPUs being taxed until UE4 and Source2 games start coming out. Even then, if you have a GTX 660 GT or better, you're still more than fine for the foreseeable future since UE4 is optimized for the Kepler chip. They had the tech demo running on a single Kepler card last I heard, which was last year...so it was probably on a GTX 670. And they said they can still get a lot more out of the card with UE4.
