Many questions, I know. Please forgive me...but is this a good deal?
Like I said, I don't know much. I can buy the desktop described below
for $550.

Processor: AMD Athlon XP 3000+
Speed: 2.167 GHz
Bus: 333MHz
Memory: 512MB
Hard Drive: 160GB
CD/DVD writer
48X CD-ROM
3.15 Floppy drive
7 USB ports
9 in 1 media card reader
Miscrosoft XP Home Edition
Other software included
Keyboard/Mouse
56K Modem

Should I?

Is this new or used?

If new, I'd say it's about right give or take a few dollars.

If used or refurbished, run from it.

Yes, it is refurbished. That's all my brother buys and he's never had a
problem. I'd love to buy brand new, but when I put all the same amount
of memory, drives, features, etc., this computer comes out to around
$800. If you know where I could get all (or most) of what I listed for
$550, I'd really appreciate it.
