OK, so it's about that time. I originally built my last rig in Jan '09. So time to shoot for something new that should last 4 years or so.
(Some stuff I have now will be moved into the new rig even though some of it is pretty old.)

Might add another 24" monitor and I have a GTX 480 I could use as a secondary card. But I have been using an 8400GS to power my 2 secondary monitors. I think 2 x 24" monitors might be a bit much for it.
The nice thing about the 8400GS though is it is much lower power and size than my GTX 480. GTX 480 just seems like overkill to use as a secondary card -- it takes up a ton of space and generates a lot of heat and uses a lot of power. Maybe I should sell it and get another 8400 or something. I also have 2 old GTX260s -- but like the GTX480, they are huge, bulky, and power hungry.
Basically I dont have a good idea what to do with my old graphics cards and monitors. I dont really have the ebay rep to sell anything worth over $100, (I have a rep of 2 out of 2 I think). And never tried the Craigslist selling route.
