I personally wouldn't pay more than $500 for it. I mean microATX mobos are pretty bad and crammed. Graphics card is pretty bad for today's games. So I really wouldn't buy that PC, but if I had to, I wouldn't give more than $500 for it. Memory and CPU are about the only things that are of good value. Hard drive an ok value too.

I wasn't talking about what I'd pay for it. I was say what the value of the parts would be.
