Is this a good price for a PC?

Here are the specs:

* Processor: Intel Q6600 Core2 Quad processor (four processor cores at 2.4 GHz each)
* Motherboard: EVGA NForce 680i SLI (122-CK-NF68-A1)
* RAM: 4GB DDR2 in Dual channel mode, DDR2-800, PC2-8000, G.Skill brand
* Graphics card: ATI Radeon HD 4550 video card with 512 MB DDR3 RAM, DVI, HDMI, and VGA outputs
* Hard Drive: 160 GB Barracuda, 7200 RPM
* Power Supply: BFG Tech 800 watts
* DVD+RW Dual Layer drive
* Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit with Service Pack 2 (SP2)
* Windows Certificate of Authenticity (COA)
* Restore disk that restores the hard drive including Windows, from a hard drive backup

There are extra hard drive slots, but no available RAM slots as its 4x1GB sticks.

It's $395 bucks. Is that a good price?

I plan on upgrading the video card or adding one in for SLI (is that possible?), and probably another hard drive.
Thanks MacRumors.

Not that great price for used and pretty old machine IMO. The CPU is decent but other parts except the PSU aren't that great. I would build a new one instead, costs a little more but has full warranties and current technology, not ancient Core 2

I don't think any of those stores are located in the Twin Cities, atleast I've never seen one...

Plus I'm not looking to spend more than $400 on a desktop, so if I could find parts that cheap to make it myself, I would.
