Default Worth it?

I just won a free A7V600 Mobo.
I don't use A socket but was wondering how much would it cost to buy all the other part to make an "OK" computer, maybe some light gaming. I have around 300$ would that be ok for now? I have about 256 ram too.

Is this preaty much the best mobo for socket A?

Or

Should I just sell it VIA eBay?

You could build a computer and sell it on Ebay, there's an idea

Your computer right now is really really nice, unless you want to fold for the forum, you might as well sell the mobo.

Unless you need a secondary or folding pc I wouldn't bother. You could make a pretty decent socket a for under $300.

Decent as in used for what?

Internet? Pong? Word?

I see that I can get 50$ for it on eBay should I just do that?
