Default Does this Barebones PC worth $50?

Hi! There is a barebones pv for sale in my college. I would like to upgrade my pc (athlonxp 1600+ and tnt2 m64) then sale the rest part. The guy charges 50 US dollars for it:

Includes the following:

AMD Athlon XP Processor 2000+
ATI Radeon7000 64 MB Video Card
Aerocool Golden Crown CPU Fan
Bestdata 56 k Modem
ATX Case with side USB ports
CD-RW 48x Drive
Floppy Drive
New Mouse

Does these worth $50? Thanks for any suggestions.
