Hello
Last week i found a Dell Optiplex 3020 MT PC on the side of the road and i knocked on the door just to justify whether the woman was throwing it away, turns out she was but didn't say why.

I own the model from 2 years before (Optiplex 3010) with a Core I5 3470, 8GB Ram and 2 hard drives along with a Mini 1050ti
I am wondering whether to switch to the 3020 which has an I5 4590, 8GB Ram and no hard drive.
Would it be beneficial? I use the 3010 for gaming and general day to day use (No hardcore editing)
Otherwise i will just sell the 3020 but not sure how much that will go for in British pound £ (Keep in mind the side door has missing screws so it falls off a lot but it's fine and it has no HDD)
Or i could change to the 3020 and sell the 3010.

Any ideas what to do?
Thank you

honestly its probably not worth the hassle, the performance upgrade you'll see in games will be minimal, the 3020's still ddr3 too, stick with your 3010 for a while longer. in terms of selling the 3020 you'll get at least £100 for it if you give it a decent 500gb+ hard drive and fix that side door. hope this helps
