Help with building new pc
May 2, 2009, 6:04 AM
Hi. I'm planning on purchasing the following components for my new computer:
Intel Core i7-920 2.66GHz
Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
Corsair DDR3 3GB 15000/1866 (3x XMS3 1GB)
Asus P6T-SE Intel Mainboard
Seagate Barracuda 320GB 7200RPM 16MB SATA 1.5Gbs
Pioneer DVR-217 SATA DVD Re-Writer (20x - Black)
Corsair HX-620 620W ATX Modular Power Supply
Cooler Master RC-690 Black Tower Case
I'm upgrading from this
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz
4 GB DDR2 RAM 1066/800 (4 x 1GB)
Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT
Seagatee 320GB 7200RPM 16MB SATA 1.5Gbs
Pioneer 112 DVD-RW
ATX 908 Case
I was just wondering if the system I'm upgrading to is a good idea and if so, how much do you think I could get for my old system (no monitor or peripherals included)?

Not very much I'm afraid. You didn't mention a motherboard, but let's say $150.

Keep the old machine and use for the internet. Or give it to a family member. Like Proximon says, you will not get much for it.

Yeah, good point.
But what do you think of the new computer? Is it worth changing from one to the other?
