Default Somebody just offered me £800 for my build.

My friend wants a new gaming rig that's pre-OC'ed and he's offering me £800. Should I sell? It cost me about £700 new but I could buy a much better PC for £800. What do you guys think? I'm leaning toward yes.

I think you should go with it too! I like the building of the PC's too, so having to do that again with improved parts

I would put a brand new HDD in that one, and keep the old HDD, so you can put it in your newer build.

What would you upgrade though? faster memory is about all (performance wise) unless you intend to step up to DDR3.

£100 is £100 though I guess.
