Build New Rig Now??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok so i just received my new mobo and cpu thanks to another OCN member.
Specs:
Mobo: M4A89GTD PRO
CPU: Phenom II X3 (gonna unlock it)
GPU: 8800 GTS & 9600 GSO
RAM: Crucial Ballistix 4GB
CPU Cooler & Case will stay the same.

Now my problem is that i dont know if i should clean it up fully and take all the old parts out and put the new parts that i have in...
The only good thing i can see about it is that i might save some time in building and cleaning until the RAM & TIM come in..
What do you guys think i should do? Should i post my old parts in the For Sale or keep it? I am really attached to it (My first build)
I did take the GPU and cleaned it but thats about it... I wanna game and stuff.

Take everything out, clean the old rig up, and sell the old parts.

Taking down an old rig has a nostalgic feeling to it doesn't it? you could try modding the case as well before everything comes in. A simple paint job can go a along way. Even if it's just painting the interior of the chasis black.
