Default How much should I sell this for?

Hi, due to me wanting to get back into pc gaming, I am building a brand new Conroe rig, leaving this one to be nearly useless to me. So I want to get rid of it. Here's all the specs I'm aware of:

Model: HP a350n
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 w/ Hyperthread @ 2.8Ghz
RAM: 1GB pc2700
GPU: ATI 9600SE 128mb
HDD: 160GB @ 7200rpm
Onboard audio
OS: XP Home

I guess I could either sell it to my sister who needs a pc, or put it on ebay? So how much could i get? $300? $400? more? I'll be checking ebay doing my best to look up similair rigs to see what they are going for. Thanks a bunch.

Stacker 830 - e6600 @ 3.6ghz - Eva 9800GTX+
X-Fi Xtrememusic - 4GB OCZ SLI 1066
Sceptre 20.1" - Logitech Z5500 - Gigabyte DS3 965p

Maybe 300, since it is a prebuilt. If it was a custom-built you would probably be able to sell it for more... Prebuilt companies use cheap parts, with lower upgrade probablity, locked BIOS, and other stuff, which kinda' lowers the value to end-PC-users.
