If you had to let go 2 of those, I would choose:

#2) BFG; before they fade from people's memory.
#5) It has higher resale value since it's current gen.

I should probably mention this is what I do and use them for

1) Mine : Will be strictly gaming and the odd research and browsing

2) Wife's : This is the Media PC for streaming to the xbox 360 and also another tv that has an asus o!play air, as well as music, and slight gaming, also does adobe etc...

3) Kid's : Gaming mostly and research that's about it.

I should mention that I'm only interested in which CPU/MotherBoard combo's to keep as I can swap all the other stuff quite easily :)

Thanks again so far looks like 1,4,5

Which motherboard is the best one I have for the 1055t's? The Gigabyte or the Asus?
