That sounds a little low to me.  Especially since you've got 1.5GB Ram
and the GF2 64MB video card.  Plus the 60GB drive is larger than
the default 20GB, isn't it.

I'd hold out for at least $800 if I were you.  But check eBay for
prices on equivalent machines.

BTW, why not upgrade it instead of replacing it?  I've already
upgraded my cube to 1.2GHz and am now seriously considering upgrading
it to 1.7Ghz for ~$500.
