Default New upgrade parts on the way

Antec True Power New 750W, Intel Core i5-750 2.66GHz, Zalman CNPS10X Performa, G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB PC3 12800, ASUS P7P55D-E Pro, Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 1GB , all of these parts will be added to parts from my existing pc hardware from my previous build, which was... Lian Li pc7-plus II, WD 640Gb and 1Tb Black edition hard drives, LG 22x dvd burner, MS keyboard and MS optical mouse and Samsung 19" 940bw monitor.

My old parts I'm donating to my brother... core 2 duo e6600, 4gb ram, seagate 320Gb hard drive, Zotac 8800gt 512Mb, Antec Sonata III w/500watt psu

I'f I go scrooge, how much do you think the old parts I'm considering giving to my brother are actually worth?

I was looking for bang for the buck, and I think my part list is very good, maybe a bit much for a choice for video cards, but it was the radeon 5870 or possibly a GTX 470, and I went back to team red...

Did I choose wisely?... any comments?

Your new parts look good. Only thing I would have changed is your cpu heatsink. As for your "old" stuff no more than $275 for all of it.
