Yeah that looks to be about right. That graphics card goes for 200-300 depending on model, the power supply is great, 100-150 bucks, and a 200 dollar processor. I would say pick it up, slap a new cpu cooler on there as it is stock and you are good to go. Now the only problem I see is that it is a reference cooler on the graphics card. It should be ok, but I wouldnt buy one as a first choice. You might need 1 or 2, 5 dollar fans too.

Grab that thing while it's still there! That's a phenomenal price! :D

Make sure theres no bare wires and everything appears to be safe. Starting it up is a good way too. Start it up and check temps and see if it runs.
