Help with building new pc

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

Gigabyte GA-P35-S3

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)?

  1. Not very much I'm afraid. You didn't mention a motherboard, but let's say $150.
  2. I've just updated the post to include some more features I just located
  3. 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.
  4. Yeah, good point.
    But what do you think of the new computer? Is it worth changing from one to the other?
