Bill,

Lacking your full requirements, the decision should rest
on the question "Can/Does the current hardware support/run
the software needed for this research/job???

If so, continue to use until no longer true. Reason being, at some
point the answer will be no if not maybe not. Then it is time to
invest in new hardware. The paradigm of upgrading is no longer
relevant with new computer prices at $1000. HTH
