Default sell old machine, get new?

I'm thinking about selling a sys with the following specs, but am still not sure.



Cybertron case
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe nVidia Socket 939
Seagate 200 Gig hdd (2x, 400 gigs total)
2 Gigs of PC 3200 RAM
Pioneer DVDR, DVDRW, CDR, CDRW,
XFX GeForce 6800 GT (256MB DDR3,) (x2)
there are two PCI express cards in this system

AMD 939 3500 (64 bit)

I want to replace it with a newer system, but I haven't made up my mind...

comments? Requests? If I sell, it should go for about 2.5-2.6 grand.

I hear that the cell CPU will be far superior to any 64 bit, so I'm pondering waiting to upgrade until I can get a cell system.

what do you think?

thats quite the crazy set up..im not sure if ide pay 2.5-2.6 grand for it though, maybe 2 grand if i had that kinda money to spend.

Why are you selling that though? that computer would do you for so long.

Red face yeah

Yeah, I'll probably keep it. I was looking at a dual 64 motherboard w/ dual PCI express & SLI, but this system will last a while.

diabloII: A "cell system" is a system that uses the "cell" CPU, which is going to be used in the Sony Play Station 3 and future computer systems. Its processing capabilities are far superior to that of any 64 bit pc.

merci,

die fische
