Default is this a good deal...?

I was thinking of getting this...


and upgrading my computer with it, swapping out the motherboard, processor, hdd, memory and powersupply with mine, basically putting everything into my current case and adding the 1GB of PNY PC6400 I'm currently running (currently clocked down to 667MHZ because of mobo limitations)...

for $399 USD I would then be running a 2.4GHZ Q6600, 3GB PC6400 (2GB OCZ and 1GB PNY), 3 SATA HDD (80, 160, and 250GB), 2 IDE HDDs (120 and 250GB), ASUS EN8500GT TOP/HTP/512MB PCI-E (I don't game), a BFG 650W PSU and a Panasonic DVD burner...

I would then try to sell a 2.4GHZ E6600, 2GB PC5300 (G-Skill), 2 IDE HDDs (80 and 120GB), ASUS EN6200LE 256MB, a 430W Antec Earthwatts PSU and a SATA DVD burner that I will purchase to add to it...

how much do you think I could sell the core2duo system for...? maybe around $200 USD or maybe more, would it be worth $400 so it would be a free upgrade for me...? ...

just wondering, I have a friend who wants to buy a desktop and he doesn't game, just wants to surf the internet and such, what would be fair...?

MY INTARDNET BEAST ■ Antec 300 ■ Q6600 B3, 2.8GHz @ 1.325v ■ MSI X48C Platinum ■ Kingwin XT-1264 ■ Visiontek HD 4870 512MB ■ 4x1GB Transcend aXeRam DDR3-1800 @ 1400MHz ■ WD Raptor (160GB) ■ Western Digital (250GB) ■ Samsung (640GB) ■ Seagate (500GB) ■ WD Caviar Green (1TB) ■ OCZ ProXStream 1kw ■ Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum ■ JVC HA RX900 ■

That's pretty good but if you get a P35 board instead it would be so much better.
