Default Re: Gaming Rig Upgrade

And would it be worth it to sell the system? Here are the specs:

Core 2 Quad Q6600
GIGABYTE Motherboard
Corsair CX600 PSU
8 GB DDR2 @ 800 MHz
The graphics card I took out and put in my new system, so I'm debating what to get to match the performance of the C2Q. Any suggestions? Is it worth it?

Yeah you can do that, but write in the description in your ad that you will also accept offers for one or the other.

Don't even bring that up. My small town with a population of about 200 has had a rash of break in's, and I'm afraid I'll get my prized possession stolen

You build your own AR-15. Cool. Suppose it's not made of Lego.

btw, i am confused about why you are calling your revolver and your assault rifle sentry guns.
