This seems wierd to me, but I can actually make money by upgrading my computer. I have an Asus Rampage III Extreme Black Edition with and i7 Extreme (x990) CPU.
I can sell my MB for several hundred dollars on eBay and my CPU for around $700+ still. Not to mention selling my Ram for another $100. I'd make a least $1000 and probably more like $1200 selling it off like that.
Now I can get a new high-end MB, RAM, and the Haswell 4770K for less than $800 online.
I know that with multi-threaded applications the x990 is still better, but the 4770k is better for single threaded tasks. I mostly play graphics intensive games, so should I upgrade my MB/CPU/RAM?
P.S. I've already upgraded my GPU to two OC 4GB VRAM GTX 770's in SLI. Money is not too much of an issue, but it just seems wierd that I could make money by upgrading.
