Default Dell build sold to customer: Good Deal or not?

Hello I sold this dell I built to my father's gf for $300 it included a key board and mouse and a 17 inch lcd monitor and speakers. The dell was a 2.6gig pentium 4(not prescott) with 2gb of pc3200 ddr2 ram and a 160gb sata hd and asus 52x sata dvd player with quiet track. The operating system was ubuntu 8.10 since it is arguably just like windows and with out all of the viruses.
What do you think about this for $300 eh?

Wow, WAY underpriced IMO. Assuming everything is used (which would make the prices lower) I would assuming around 120 for the monitor alone. And no way you could get a P4 2.6 gig rig for 180 dollars IMO.

I would say around 400 to 450.
