When you have your custom machine for many many years and ready to build yourself a new one, what do you do with your old rig that has seen its years of use?

I am in that situation right now. I plan to upgrade it on december during christmas time. I plan on sell my old setup.. even though it should be around 1/6 of the original price, i pretend to buy the GPU with it.

My main concern is what architecture i will get, i don't know if those i7 are worth it. Ryzen seems to be quite almost the same and it's around 400$ less than intel built systems.

I keep it for atleast a half a year, for data transferring, if I accidentally delete a backup of something I wanted to save. After that, I put everything on it to an external drive, and trash the computer.
