Selling my 1st Build, Making a better one.

I recently (6months ago) built:

I5 2500K $230
850W PSU $100 (will switch to 500W from an older system before I sell it, keep the 850W for my new system)
MOBO Gigabyte Z68 $160
Corsair 400R Case $100
RAM 8G 1600mhz-CL9 $50
Radeon 6950 $250
SSD 128G 320 R/W $160
CD drive $20
Case Fans $20 Total:$1200 + tax = $1344.00
Windows 7 $110
My Friend wants to buy it for $840.00, which im willing to let go at.

Now I get to build an new system with all the new tech.

I5 3570K $230

PSU -free, im keeping the 850W from previous build.

Mobo Gigabyte Z68 -(going to buy same one, its only $110 on sale now)

Also please feel free to show any other Cases in the $50-$90 Range.

GTX 670 OC 1010mhz $420

8GIGs RAM 1600 -$50

I have a 2T Seagate 7200RPM already. $0.00

Windows 7 $110

Case Fans $20

CD drive $20 Total $1070 roughly + tax $1198 -$840= $358

benefits: Better CPU, Graphics card and new parts, but question is, is it worth $358 ?

  1. If your going with an Ivy Bridge cpu then get a Z77 board.

    The CPU difference isn't so great for the investment to be worth it. It would make more sense to sell your friend just the GPU, help him make a build for $840, and buy the 670 for yourself.
