250 for both the system and the shipping cost? Hmm... I suppose it might be. That isn't too bad of a computer.

Now a days. No, it is not worth it at all. I mean, that computer is basically internet browser and email checker...can't really do much else.

uhh.. it has a 2400+ athlon xp, 768 megs of ram, and a radeon 9700... that thing is fully capable of playing games.. i've played fine on worse computers. For a gamer on a very (and I mean VERY) tight budget, this sort of system would be excellent.

I'd pay $250 for it if I didn't already have my newest computer. Should be able to play most games at low/low-mid settings, plus has a ton of space for that price.

I have a HP Vectra running a P3, and it works perfectly fine. I could run Photoshop 7 on it without any problems. I could think up 9 things to do with an old computer.

i played cs 1.6 on a 366mhz emachine 64mb ram and onboard video..
that machine is capable of playing lots of games..
i'd do it for 250, it really isn't too bad of a computer.
