    It all depends on the way you are going to use it. Will be good enough for some things, bad for other. What about RAM ? if less than 8GB I would ad some. An SSD would perk it up a lot too. Check requirements for games you plan to play and it will tell you what to expect.

    Sounds good, take it, use it and see what may be needed to change. That MB can take more serious CPU with right BIOS.

    My advice is never get any computer used unless you have a lot of knowledge about computers. You never know if it had problems in its past life irs probably past warrenty and virus protection is probably no good on it. and you don't know whats all on it.
