I am currently in the early stages of making a new gaming PC to replace my (WAY WAY overpriced) HP ENVY Phoenix gaming computer, what should I do with it when I'm done, it is in great condition, but it cost $2500 and I want to sell it, but Im not sure what to sell it for. Specs: -Intel Core i7 4820K @3.7 Ghz -12 Gb of ddr3 ram -Radeon r9 270 -no HDD -420Watt PSU -6 USB 2.0 -4 USB 3.0 -Wifi Card -Watercooler -Optical Drive As a bonus, I'll through in a custom painted GeForce GT 730 that I no longer need.

That's a lot of good hardware there. Not to make assumptions here, but why not just keep it and swap out the GPU for something better?

I would like something that looks nicer, and I would be much more proud of building my own, I've owned it for a few years, and want to build my own, have something that I can put whatever I want in, without restrictions of owning an OEM pc, such as the pitiful airflow, since this case only has one fan and it is for the watercooling radiator. If I don't sell this computer I will most likely give it to my dad. The main reason I want to replace it though is to switch things up, be able to change components other than the GPU some time. The only thing I can change in this case it the GPU, due to limitations with the very odd MoBo and bad airflow case and low powered PSU

I understand. There's definitely a huge maintenance and flexibility advantage to building a machine yourself. And it's always great to finally be able to say, "Hey, I built it myself!" Good luck!

I have built a small PC that I gave away to someone who needed it, building it was a ton of fun, I had a blast doing it. It is really satisfying being able to say, "I built that!". Thanks!

http://pcpartpicker.com/list/h6stKZ that is the PC I plan to replace it with, while the CPU would be a small downgrade, for what I use a PC for, the i5 is more than enough.

Looks promising, and definitely much more bang for buck than that $2500 HP. I look forward to seeing it in the Completed Builds in the future. :D

You will be seeing that, the reason I bought the HP is I didn't know how to build a PC very well, It should be here very soon, it should be reaching the completed list sometime around after Christmas, which is when I'm getting most of the parts. :D
