New Gaming PC... Upgrade or Rebuild?

I've got a nice PC built about 8 months ago. That computer set me back by about 1200$. Here is my current build http://pcpartpicker.com/list/rynyGX and here is my "new" build http://pcpartpicker.com/list/xgVt7h. Should I keep the PC and upgrade it? or should i sell it and buy the new one? How much could i sell the old PC for? Also, how is my new build? Sorry for all of my questions :D

  1. CPU doesnt need upgraded, not worth the performance increase if you have old one already. The GPU can be upgraded if you want but may be overkill

    I know the CPU doesn't "need" an upgrade, but if i kept it, I lost the ability to sell the old computer whole, which would be the easiest way. Also, I am getting a new 1440p 144hz monitor, so the 1080 strix will be useful

    Not worth the money spent. Just get the 1080 and the monitor you want.
