Need 2 systems. I've got 3 systems, 1 running: Q6600 w/ ASUS P5B Dlx (XP Pro). 2 parts: Q9950 w/ G-byte EP45-UDR3; and new i5-2500K w/ ASUS P8P67 (not Pro or Dlx); WIN7 Pro. Non-gamer but overclock. Which 2 keep & which 2 sell cost/benefit?
He stated he needs to keep 2 of the 3. While new the price difference between the q6600 and q9950 was substantial, the residual value of used systems cuts that dramatically. Might as well stick with the q9950 if you can only get $25-50 more on the used market. At least that's my line of thought.
