Default Is this a good computer? Help please!

Blue Infinify PC Case:
- Neon Blue lights ( 2 neon blue fans )
- ATI X1300 Pro
- SB 5.1
- K&N MB
- Original ATI 9800 Pro ( may be blown out but ill include it )
- 1 heat circulator ( removes all hot air from card's )
- 1 CD Rom ( 52 X Memorex )
- 1 CD/CDRW Burner
- 400 watt powersupply ( i think or 380 )
- 1 gig of corshair ( you may need to replace, still runs games fine, but its been through alot )
- 1 80 gig hard drive
- AMD 3200+ 2.21 GHZ Processor

If the deal is right, i can add a mouse/keyboard and speakers. I used this PC to travel and play games ( CStrike ) for nearly 3+ years.

If someone could tell me about how much this is worth n how good it is that would be awesome!
I forgot to mention i'd want to use this computer for gaming purposes.

well its not great, the 9800pro is quite a old card now and the x1300 is a low end card really. the 3200 should be fine, but i guess its a agp motherboard so you cant put a pci-express graphics card it.

what games will you be playing?

EDIT: I get it now. You should probably clarify that the upper part of your post is copied from an ad, and the bottom part is actually you speaking.

Don't pay over $200 for it. It's all old technology and probably needs cleaning, etc. If it'll cost more than that amount, you're better off saving up for a new build. Building is more fun, anyway.
