If it doesn't have an AGP slot, no. If it has an AGP slot, it's still
not excellent. A little less than twice that price got me a dual-1GHz
G4 w/ crap video, 1GB memory, and no disk around Christmas time. Disks
are cheap. Video cards aren't -that- horribly expensive, but upgrading
the rest of the box isn't really an option.
I've found that Macs with easily-fixed things wrong with them (dead
disks, bad RAM, etc.) tend to go for very cheap, even if the rest of the
specs are decent.
