Sauron is a one of the Ainur, which are comparable to gods or angels. The Ainur exist in two groups: the Valar and the Maiar. The Maiar are lesser beings than the Valar and serve them.

Sauron is a Maiar, and so he has existed since the very beginning of Ea (the world). To make a guess based on the chronology of events in Tolkien's world, Sauron is at least ten thousand years old.

Gandalf is an Istari, and one of the Maiar (demigods). He does not age, though he assumes the form of an old man.

Gandalf appeared in Middle Earth in the year 1050 of the Third Age, he departed from the Grey Havens in 3019 of the third age - making 1,969 years.

In Tolkien's world, Gandalf wasn't a man but had the appearance of a man, he wasn't born in the normal sense and, although he did die during Lord of the Rings, he was sent back. When, at the end of the book, he departs over the sea from the Grey Havens, it seems to be considered a one way trip, so it is likely he then left Middle- earth forever.

It must be noted, of course, that Gandalf's history cannot be said to truly begin when he arrived in Middle Earth. Since he was apparently a Maia, one of the beings who at the beginning of time assisted Illuvatar and the Valar in the creation of the World, it would be fair to say he goes back a ways.

Gandal is approximate 32045 years old. He's being sent to help Varda with creation of Arda.

As old as Gandalf, the wizards are Miar, lower than the Valar. The Ainur (Valar and Miar) were created in the beginning by Eru to sing the world and all life into existence, then care for it.

Sauron is also a Miar.
