maybe a stupid question but im torn inbetween, i wanna get rid of it for the money, but i wanna keep it for a 2nd pc.

Specs
Haf912 (since most likely ill be buying the HAFx this weekend)
Amd x4 965
Asus M4n68T-M V2
Kingston Hyper X blu 2x4gigs
some aprevia 650w power supply

sooo i basically have my old build in boxes now, it went watercooled for a good 8 months if that at 3.9. NOOOWWWWWW i wanna know how much do you guys think i can get out of this build money wise? or would it be a "wiser choice" to build on a budget and keep it as a family HTPC?

I'd hold on to it for a backup in case the worst happens. It's a nice piece of mind. I still have my 940 BE build in the closet, case and all.

its what i was thinkin, except i was gonna put the stock fan on it, and leave it at stock speeds and buy a 9800gt (on sale at frys) and buy a 500g hard drive and call it a day, and leave it in the living room so that my mom could browse and email and sh*t
