For poker, yes. You could probably pay for it with a week of multi- tabling fifty cent games. The only thing you may want to do is add more RAM and maybe upgrade the video card(depending on what they give you). Now go get a Dell Ultrasharp monitor and start tearing the tables up. Is all that without a rebate? If so then it is well worth it, you can't build a thing that powerfull for that cheap. Hell the Windows XP alone will cost you $70.

Bargain! Even if it's an ex-display model or something, I wouldn't have to think too long about buying that.
