Yeah, it's your money, decide for yourself when it's important to "upgrade".
You might not like this, but here goes. The value of that set to anyone else is effectively zero. Look at how low the Craigslist prices are for HDTV rear-projection sets / DLPs, and you'll see that essentially no one will want it. Which is both good news and bad news. Bad news is - it's worthless to anyone but you. Good news - because of that, when it comes time to dispose of it, you'll be doing exactly that, so consider disassembling the chassis instead of wrestling it down the stairs intact. Chunks and pieces small enough to carry. And it's going into a dumpster...
(Note that CRT-based units like this have high voltage components that may retain charge when unplugged - don't go playing around inside it - take the chassis apart and carry the electronics down as one unit)
Now, you might find someone to give you $50 for it, or you could donate it to charity, but having to take it down stairs is going to turn most folks off, so that job is going to fall on you...
