I recently built a pc for gaming less than a few months ago. Now, I realize that spending a considerable amount of money making sure that my pc would crush games was a mistake, as I am more interested in rendering, and I don't play any of those GPU hungry triple-A titles anyway.
I'm wondering if I'll be able to make a profit by either selling the entire machine and building a new, slightly cheaper, CPU focused machine (the rendering program/s I use can only take advantage of the CPU), or by reselling the CPU, GPU, and/or any other components that I don't need for rendering and getting an upgraded CPU, while getting cheaper versions of the GPU and whatever else I replace. As I've said, my PC is just under 3 months old, and has had minimal GPU usage, pretty much 0 actually. The CPU is active every now and then rendering for a few hours at a time, and is kept at around 70 C.
Additionally, I have a 2560x1440 resolution monitor that I would like to keep (https://www.amazon.c...1?ie=UTF8&psc=1), so I would still need a graphics card that would be able to run the games that I do play from time to time efficiently on this monitor. Games like Starbound, Terraria, and Minecraft (which I've learned is more CPU heavy. I think the other two are as well).
Here are the parts I bought for around $1500: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/RNnKtJ
So is it possible for me to sell all or part of my current pc, then build one more suitable for CPU rendering, and end up making a bit of profit?
Thanks in advance!
