I know I've been playing PC games since at least the late 80s. And in theory not long after that, as soon as ATX-style computer cases came out... you could be swapping in new "guts" every few years and be using the "same computer" as then.

It'd be like if Nintendo kept releasing an "Upgrade Kit" for the original NES every couple of years.
