Is the 1,500$ in USD? I can help you construct a pretty decent build for the price if you'd like.

oooOO 1500NZD. Stick to AMD.

Off topic; some of my best friends are from NZ and they'll be opening up a catering business very soon here of which I may help them out in the process!

Just sell it! Use the funds! It's worth it because your newer PC will give you much more rewarding use and unless you have friends over all the time gaming it probably wouldn't get much use.

If you can pay in USD over the internet, you can get stuff at Newegg for much cheaper than in New Zealand.

Hmmm. But then there's shipping, does Newegg do overseas?
