Good deal on this GT or no?

I'm new to mountain biking and found this bike at a yard sale, I knew it was a good brand so I went for it.

It's a GT aggressor 3.0. Not sure what year. I got for $30.
It needs some work thought.

-Front derailleur
-Left Shifter and Brake
-Front brake
-New crankset

Oh and this might be a stupid question but will a crankset for a 122 fit a 122.5 bottom bracket?

Leo_96 Welcome to the forum. Without pics it's hard to say how good a deal you got, but $30 is a pretty low price for a bike. As long as you don't have to sink a lot of money into it to bring it around, you may have done well.
Assuming that both bottom brackets have the same design, i.e. square taper, 0.5 mm should not be a big deal. Check your chainline after you mount the drive side.

That budget should keep you in good financial shape. A GT is a good bike and should be a good foundation to build from. Enjoy! $30. is a hard price to beat.
