    Hi, I recently bought enough parts to build a new computer. Should I keep my old setup and wait for AMD M2 or should I upgrade now?

    Both computers are in hand but I was thinking of selling one of them so I could play poker over winter break.

    CURRENT RIG:
    amd 64 3200+ 754 socket OC'ed to 2.4Ghz
    1GB corsair
    asus k8v deluxe mobo
    BFG 6800OC
    200gb ata drive
    8x dvd burner
    super lanboy case
    total cost about 1 year ago was $600

    BUILT RIG:
    amd 64 x2 3800+ manchester
    2GB gskill zx
    asus a8n sli
    xfx 7800GT oc
    200gb ata drive
    16x dvd burner
    coolermaster centurion 5 case
    total cost was around $1k

    If i keep the new one, how much could i sell the old one for?
    I'm probably going to OC the new one to 2.6ghz if i keep it.

    If i keep the old one, how much could i sell the new one for?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you swapped out the ATA hard drive in the old computer for an SATA drive, thus eliminating the one old component in there, I'd be willing to bet you could get $1000 for it as long as it has Windows and basic software installed.
