That's pretty decent. 5970 is old tech, but it's still a pretty powerful card. I'm thinking you could get $1100 off of it. I mean, the case is high quality, the power supply is high quality, the GPU is the fastest you can buy, and there's a blu-ray drive.

Try $1100 or $1200?

I was going to say $1200, personally, before even reading any of the other replies in this thread. That is the sweet spot, most likely. :-)

I too got around $1200. Should sell fast if you list it for $800.

Don't sell your 1366 for the 1155. Wait for the new high end socket.

Thanks for all the help! I wish I could choose more than 1 best answer. I'm gonna list it for $1100 and see what happens from there. Definately gonna wait until the new high end socket comes out, until then I'll have my MacBook air, 360 and PS3 to hold me over. Thanks again for all the help! =)

I wish I read 850HX ..... then I'd say sell the GPU and grab a pair of 470's. Might think about a pair of flashed 6950's on that 750
