Default Used computer, need advice on pricing

So I'm looking to get a secondary tower in my office and I came across this one in my local ads.

Amd athlon x2 5000+ black edition 1mb 2,8ghz
ATI RADEON x1950 pro 512mb gddr3 pci-express
OCZ reaper hpc edition pc2 6400 ddr2 2x1gb 800mhz total=2gb
ASUS m2n-e motherboard
powersuply atx 600w OCZ STEALTHXTREME
cpu fan ZALMAN model cnps7500-cu led
hdd WESTERN DIGITAL 80go sata 2 8mb
dvd burner rw LG h62n
How much do you think this is worth?

I did a research on the net and it came to like 685$ new (just for the tower).

He's asking 650$ CAD.
Of course, he's including Win XP Pro SP2, Norton antivirus and stuff like that... but I don't really count that into the price. He's also offering a few games with it (that I don't want): Bioshock, Frontlines Fuel of War, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Star Wars Knights of Old Republic 2 and Assassins Creed.

I'm thinking of offering 500$ with games and 400$ with none.

Thanks for your comments, I appreciate it.

Hi Jawn,

I am new here but here is my opionion. The amd 5000 black edition is a nice
oc. I have one in my desktop. I like it a lot. OCing it to 3.1 and runs very
cool. It looks to me that it is a nice setup he is offering. ATI 1950 is a
decent card for video and low graphic games. At least a 600w power supply
is a must have for any desktop these days. I would not pay anything more
than $450 but it is worth at least $500. Just my thoughts.
