I upgraded 3 of my Mac Pros to 5770s and 5880s when those were the only options available. One of the systems was a 2008. The other 2 were 2007s.

I sold all three when I consolidated my office and decided to purchased an iMac late last year. I have already started to notice sluggishness on the iMac on certain FCPX projects, so I figure in a year the current system will be ready for Craigslist.

Historically, I prefer upgrading parts vs short-term resale (mainly because that's been my pattern). Ultimately it comes down to cost. If the resale value works out more in my favor to sell early and purchase new in a shorter time frame, then so be it.
