Re: Move from i7-920 to Ivy Bridge 3770k Worth it?

I cycle my boards down to other systems I have when I upgrade. I have one system just for editing that has nothing else on it. Don't have anti virus etc only go to internet for upgrades of programs. Another system that is used for internet and email access ( the one I am typing this on now ) and yet another that I use for all financial transaction ( no email access ) but both these have AVAST, Spybot and CCleaner on them and I check once a week with Housecall . I just cycle down the motherboards/processors/memory as I upgrade the editing PC and then throw out the oldest since it ends up being 8 years out of date which makes it close to worthless !!!

I hear that but I already have the previous system for my wife going strong with only a 300w power supply case. And I do not want to rebuild her setup as well since she is plenty happy with it now. I saw a 920 system go for ~$200 (mobo,CPU & RAM) on Ebay which gave me some hope of getting at least $100+ for mine.

Hoping that someday I will get beyond being the tech depot of computer building and camera shuffling! Been changing since the SD era and I am ready to just have a setup that remainds constant but handles everything like a charm. The latest build should be that way for a few years at least.
