New to this whole forum thing so lemme know if i'm causing S**T...
I got an offer on my parts of my pc ..
core 2 e6750 @3.7Ghz... After market rocket cooler + NB and SB Coolers
P5n-e Sli mother board
what i want to know is it i sell this for round R3000 (which is round about what i paid for it 1.5 years ago) am i going to see any benefits if i upgrade to the Q9550?
I should really ask am i going to see R2000s worth of upgrade cause that's roughly what the Q9950 mb and After market cooler will cost me.
I use my pc... for gaming mostly
I'm worried that if i don't sell now I'm not going to get much for it in a years time...
But i also don't want to have to upgrade twice...Meaning if i sell this i don't want to have to sell the Q9550 in a years time because the i7 prices have dropped...
Or should i just go for the i7 now i am a dealer so i do get very good prices on parts but its a lot of money if I'm not going to be using the extra power...
Any comments would help me make my mind up thanks!

Not sure what the market prices are for those parts now. Price them yourself - see what they would cost to replace now. Thats probably what they're worth.
It's unlikely it will fetch the same price you paid 18 months ago. Then a new E6750 went for about $200. Overclocking the E6750 to 3.7Ghz will not have increased its resale value.
Today you could pick up a good used E6750 for around $50. And a brand new E5300 2.6GHz for around $70.
My opinion is you won't see a good return on the price you pay for the upgrade.
