Default Cheap Dell - worth buying?

Ok, got the monthly DELL newsletter this morning and the January sales are on.

I looked at this pc..

Intel P4 Processor 2.88 GHz
512mb ram (plus double memory until the end of january, so atcuali 1024MB RAM.

80GB HDD - extra 40 pounds for 120GB.

This costs a measly 129 POUNDS!

You could buy new mobo for about 50 quid, then new case, about 30, so you could have an ok pc for about 200.

Shall I buy it?? What you guys think?

It's such a cheap pc that it's actually not worth buying at all (is it even pci ex). I wouldn't waste my money on that comp. I would just save up until I have enough for a more up-to-date pc, preferably an amd. The p4, assuming that it's the prescott core, is dead. Not worth it.

129?

There has to be something wrong with it if it's only that much.

Does it come with a monitor and keyboads and stuff?
