I built my first PC in Dec, 2013. Below is the config:
- CPU: FX-8350
- Cooler: Hyper 212X
- GPU: Sapphire R7 370 (2GB)
- MOBO: Asrock 990FX Xtreme4
- PSU: Corsair VS550
- RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3
- Case: Cooler Master K281
It has been about 6 years now and most of the parts are available at lesser price than I had paid back then.
I am thinking to sell these parts at 30-40% of the current market price and rebuild the PC so that I can get fresh parts (with warranty) and perhaps improve GPU, PSU, Case and RAM. The reason I want to sell them ASAP is because I think they will die anytime now.
I don't play games anymore, too busy with office work and personal life. I would like to use this PC for watching movies (on HD 1080 monitor), create some videos for YouTube and connect to office PC via Citrix. Therefore I would like this new/upgraded build to last another 5~6 years.
What do you guys think?
