My freind wants to upgrade to a 980x 6 core chip and sell me his I7-940 chip. I posted before to get a feel of the value of the 940 chip and for the $300 he is asking for it appears a decent deal.
Should I buy a new mobo and ram for this chip, use my Haf 922, 750 wt power sup, hd, 5850, 22 inch monitor, etc, and use it as my primary system,
OR Keep my 955 x4 system?
Or keep both? Or sell the 955 system with a lian li case, 600 wt power sup, 8800gts 640 vid card, ?
I would rather not incur the costs for the new chip/system, but It could be nice to have a powerfull spare system.
Second: If I do buy the CHip and ram, whitch of the two boards below would be the better choice??
The figures Im thinking of, I should be able to sell my 955 system for a lil above the I7 940 sys costs. SInce I already have most parts for the other system I would only need to buy another HD for my primary system, probly a black edition drive. And I can put the 640 drive in the 955 to sell. Shrug
