whitch quadro FX card is it?

Depending on which one, the card alone is worth 300-500 dollers, so id take it... though those are not gaming cards.

i couldnt tell you what it has since you dont know the name of it lol.

an yes u could game with it, but its hard to say how well it would work.

with a single core processor you wouldn't get hard core gaming done either i wouldn't expect.

The only way to work out if its worth it or not is look at how much you can sell the parts fro seperately. You would easily make more the $100 back on all of that and you probably would even in 6 months to a years time.
i would say its a bargain, more of an internet build though, to upgrade you would need to change the motherboard first. i think you'll be disappointed with most modern games, they will play slow and default to low graphics. I personally would rip his arm off, take it apart and list it all on ebay.
