newbie with questions

hi all i am in the market for my 1st road bike. my budget is well under $1000, so i have been looking at some base model allez', treks, and a few others. i am less than impressed with the bottom end components on these bikes. however, i have come across a 2003 Cannondale r600 triple that seems to fit me very well and has some new upgrades, such as a chris king headset, mavic aksium wheels, brand new 25mm gator skins, and a few others i cant remember. the guy is asking $600. i could probably get him to come down a bit, but is this bike worth close to this price? would anyone recommend buying a new base model and upgrading later rather than going used? all input is apprecated. thanks

Welcome to BikeForums.
This is the Introductions forum.

Ask the folks in the Road Cycling forum about the Cannondale. You'll get more replies from them.
My thoughts: the bike is 6 years old and sold for $1200 when new, so $600 seems high to me.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. - Psalm 103:8
