Default Is this computer worth the price?

I have someone wanting to sell me the following computer set up for $750, but I'm alittle skeptical, I think its a bit steep.

Intel Pentium 4 530 with HT Technology
-1MB L2 Chache
-800 Mhz Front Side Bus
-3.Ghz
XP Home
512 MB DDR Memory
160 GB 7,200 rpm Seagate SATA HD
8x Sony multiformat DVD+/- RW Drive
48x CD Drive
128 MB Nvidia Geforce FX 5300 Graphics w/DVI (PCI Express)
9:1 Digital Media Reader

How much you think all that is worth? How much do you think could I build an equal/better system for?

Thanks alot!!

It's a bad price.

Build your own.
