I Want A New Build

post #1 of 70
Thread Starter 
Even though I've only had my build for like a month , I caught the bug and want something new.
The rig I have now is in my sig , but here's what I want.


Is it worth it ?
Anything that I should change ?

Also , any idea on what I could sell my rig for ?
It'd be locally.
It's in a basic crappy case , but for random people locally I doubt that would matter.

Why don't you keep parts from your current rig? Scrap the mobo, GFX and CPU, keep the rest.

And you might wanna scrap that CPU cooler too. But your ram, PSU and HDD are fine.

It's probably cheaper just to start over for me.
I can probably get like 900 locally for it , and the whole new system would be like 200 after that.
But if I only upgraded certain parts it'd be a lot more.

Looks good. Like Afrodisiac said, just change cpu, gpu and board. That Antec 850w can power 4890 CF if you plan to do CF later.

If you're serious about upgrading, wait and see how the i5's do. You're rig is plenty enough for everyday stuff and gaming right now.

How much could I get for the cpu , gpu and the board ?
Those three things are the main reason I want to upgrade , as you can see everything else is pretty much the same as my sig rig.

EDIT - I figured it out and to upgrade the board , cpu , and gpu it'd cost me 760 brand new.
And I assume I could get 150 for my gpu , 130sish for my cpu , and like 100 for my board.
Which is 380.
So that means the total of that upgrade would be like 380.
But if I can get 900 for my current computer locally (I'm sure I could , I've seen worse computers sell for more here)
That'd mean I need like 260 to get everything like I said in the first post.
Which would be cheaper.

$400 bucks I would say.

Another idea: you can pick up a second GTX 260, market the system as TEH ULTIMATE GAMING RIG and sell it for even more to a gullible local kid.

Haha , that's kinda what it depends on , to sell it to some gullible local kid
I'm sure one gtx 260 would be enough to convince them of them of that.
So I'm not gonna bother with that.

Haha , pretty much.
I'm pretty sure my dad wants to stab me now.
But at least I pay for it all.
I even pay for the extra power this thing causes !


And I'm pretty sure I just sold my e8400 and gtx 260 for 400 to my retard friend haha.
Just sold my 780i for 100 to the same idiot haha

He's buying them thursday , which I get paid then too , so I can get all my upgrades then too
