Default is this worth 600?

asus a7n8x-e duluxe
corsair pc 2700 512mb ddr ram
nvidia 4600ti
wd 80gb hd
generic cdrw, 52x
amd athlon 2500
some random ctr that ill have to buy.
450w psu
case, key board, mouse.

My dads friend wants me to make him a computer. Since i am in the midst of building one for myself. I was thinking of cleaning mine up and selling it.

Or do you think i can make a computer with monitor and windows for $600 that is better? I could upgrade a part or two to make it more wirth it. if you think its not worth that.

edit; he doesnt play games at all. only office type stuff.

alright, but if you do *scammer cough* make sure you get him a stylish case with possible LEDs so he knows you put time into it.

Build him a new system. An office type system will be very easy for $600. Don't scam the guy, he may actually not have that much extra money to spare. He could actually be in debt.

how would it be scamming him?

the system is worth that much. if not more.
i dont see anything morally wrong with it. but then again i am pretty morally bankrupt.


Whats the difference between me selling the computer on ebay or selling it to him?
The reason i asked if the system was worth 600 was i didnt want to rip him off. If its not worth that, then i would sell it for less or make him what he wanted.
