I'd sell it. I'd use the money to buy a new graphics card and then just spend the rest over the years to upgrade.

Sell it, and build two systems with the money.

Any answer other than "keep it", or "give it to someone in need" . . is just plain stupid.

Sell it?

Really? For what - 1/3 of the original price? You're not going to be able to buy a better system with pre-installed OS and a premuim case, for what you could sell it for. And then - you would still have to sacrifice your time to put the "new" system together.

No wonder the economy is in lousy shape. They should teach business sense in public schools, instead of "tolerance" for derpitty.

Give it to my brother in law, he's been wanting a gaming computer again for a long time. To all the people saying they would sell it, you do realize you would take a massive hit to the cost right? Even if you didn't take it out of the box "It's totally new guys, still in box!" is worth a lot less than just buying it brand new from a site with a return policy and warranty.

Voted other. I would part it out and use the components in other computers and sell the case for way more than its worth.

it's free, so getting ANY money is better than the $0 from keeping it or giving it away, wtf

Why sell it for 1/3 of the price... you sell it as brand new for 200 less than the original price and be happy. It's a laptop so I don't care, if it was a desktop I would prob keep the gtx 680 though :p

Probably get a new case and put it in there, sell the old case. But I'd definitely use it.
