Actually, I will probably NOT be using this, only selling it seeing as how I am getting hooked up with a cheap Alienware.

But I would still like to know which is best for selling and whether it would be worthwhile to upgrade it or not. Selling would either be on eBay or a small computer store around here. But most likely eBay (I need money for paintball)
