    Hi all!!!!!!

    I own a iMac Core i3 3.2 GHz Core i3, 4 GB Ram, 27" Screen, and a 1 TB HDD
    and I need a faster computer with more friendly upgrades than an iMac but i cannot afford a mac pro. Someone wants to buy the iMac from me for $1200. Should i sell my iMac for a better PC????

    I don't mind using Windows since i use it on a daily basis

    Thanks For replies!!!!

    I wouldn't hesitate to sell that for $1200, personally. The longer you wait on selling the computer, the less you'll be able to get for it.

    Depends what you want to do? You could possibly build your own computer if anything. I personally prefer Intel over AMD. For editing (photo/video), gaming, etc I would look into an intel i7 2600k processor (Sandy-Bridge).

    You should sell it and get a new iMac, Quad-Core i5 is better than the one you've got. By the way, what do you do on a Mac? That's the most important thing. What don't you like about this iMac? Maybe what you need is a SSD + more RAM :)

    However, I don't think you will used to a "DIY PC" :eek: over an iMac :D

    Go with Intel 2600, 2600K if you want to overclock.

    I think it depends on if you will miss the 27 inch high res screen. If you are happy with a 1080P monitor, than a $1200 Windows PC will be a good choice. Otherwise you could spend a bit more on top to get a 27 inch quad core i5 imac.
