So I just built my first pc. I keep hearing that in 3-4 years I will need to upgrade my graphics card. Why is that so? If my card is double the power of a console now, shouldn't it be double the power of a console when it's life cycle ends? Why would I need to upgrade? The console doesn't suddenly gain 2 more teraflops. So what's preventing my rig from keeping up with console games till it dies?
