    Hey

    I was considering selling or upgrading my PC soon so I wondered what it was worth... the specs are

    AMD Phenom II 1075T
    4GB DDR2 667mhz
    2x 250gb Seagate/WD somethings....
    Sapphire ATI Radeon 5830
    Coolermaster Elite 430
    Scyth Kazemaster Pro 3.5 inch fan controller
    Samsung Dvd burner......
    ECS A780GM-A
    plus it has 6 12cm LED fans idk if that matters...

    Would it be worth selling and buying a new PC or should I just upgrade the Mobo and ram like I planned??

    I was thinkin a ASUS M4N98TD-EVO Motherboard and 8gb generic DDR3, 133X mhz.....

    His motherboard, Graphics card, CPU and ram would be worth more than that alone if it was sold from a shop.

    LED fans are like £2 to £5 each (I'm using GBP as I'm from UK so please excuse me for that.)

    DVD / CD Burners are like £10 each tops these days.

    Hard Drives (500 GB ones) are around £20 to £40 depending on make, model and speeds etc

    So I wouldn't really count those in a pricing of a computer :p as they are always the cheapest parts to get lol

    The main problem I have is, I need to buy a Mobo and Ram with a pretty small budget of about $230. I was thinking that other mobo and 2x4gb DDR3
