So I am now addicted to PC gaming, I can't get over it or except anything else. Ever since getting my specs in signature I've been going crazy on Steam & locking in serious hours onto my PC (Bad Company 2, Deus Ex, Crysis, Metro 2033, KOTOR & the list goes on :p) my PS3 has become paper weight. I was just considering if I sold all these how much money do you think I'd get & what should I do w/ that money for my PC? Upgrade my GPU? Replace my Unbranded PSU? Get a 1920x1080 monitor to replace my current 1440x900 one? (etc). I'd basically like to know what would you do if you were me.

If I sold: (all adult owned & like new).

PS3 160GB Slim.
G0W Origins Collection.
G0W Collection.
G0W III.
Uncharted.
Uncharted II.
Uncharted 3.
Metal Gear Solid HD: Collection.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of The Patriots.
Little Big Planet.
Little Big Planet II.
Read Dead Redemption.
Dead Space II including Extraction.
Mass Effect II.
Mortal Kombat.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
Battlefield: Vietnam.
Mx vs. ATV Reflex.
NCAA 12.

(PLEASE be serious in your suggestions on what I should do w/ said money earned).

New GPU then CPU, but you might have to get a new PSU depending on what you have now

ide say your dual core is holding you back more than the 5770. a x4 965 is $120 with $10 off right now on new egg. you would have to spend around $200 to get a significant upgrade in performance in the gpu department, vs $110 for the cpu. just my $.02

That's what I was thinking so far.

Honestly, I'd keep the PS3 (for future exclusives) and just sell off games that you won't ever play again.

Honestly, that's what I've been doing so far, just got rid of a lot of games already. Just kept the exclusives as seen in the OP. I mean my set ain't horrible, especially gaming at 1440x900 but I', just wondering the possibilities if I had some more money.
