Default Just wondering....

I'm just curious as to what you guys do when you upgrade your components.

Say, you upgraded from a E6300 to a QX6700, what do you do with your old processor? Or, if you went from a 6600GT to a 8800GTX.

Do you just have a drawer with your old junk in it?

I save it all, even the older and outdated stuff. I eventually find a use for it

If I had any unused parts that were actually worth any money, I might consider selling them
