fascia need replacement?

I'm redoing the gutters on a house I just bought that was built in 1942. I think the fascia is original. It's just 1x6 12 foot planks. Some needs to be replaced, some can be sanded and painted. The question is, where do I draw the line? Does anyone have suggestions on guidelines of when I should replace it (due to rotting/cracking/etc)? I want to do what's right for my place, but I also don't want to toss away what is essentially good wood that just need a good paint job and will last another 20+ years. All of it has water damage, but most of it is limited to paint peeling.

Hit it with a hammer in various places. Give it a good shot. You'll know right away what needs to be replaced.
