Default Looking for opinions on a computer

I have a budget of around 600 and am looking for refurbished computers. I found this website with them but am not good at interpreting what the stuff is (i'm a complete noob at hardware)

HP Pavilion Elite HPE-180t W7HP-64 i7 950 3.06GHz 2TB SATA 9GB DVDRW(LS) 1GB NIC WLAN 5-in-1 Rmkt PC

Is this computer sufficient to run the most recent games and do several tasks while watching video/listening to music etc?

Thanks for the help

The processor is good, and so is the RAM. Without it listing a video card it's hard to say about games, but it should be able to multi-task like a champ.

I have no idea what processor they don't list much just this as the specs. when i google HP Pavilion Elite HPE-180t it usually gives me this as the video card but i'll have to ask when the customer service is up tomorrow.

It actually did list the processor, it's an Intel i7 Model 950 at 3.06GHz which is a very good processor by most standards and still runs all games at max when paired with proper video and RAM.

I think that video card you just posted is good. However, I'll let an AMD/ATI expert confirm that one as I don't keep track of that line as well as I should.

I mean video card when i said it didn't list it, lol i'm bad at this.

Thanks for the help I'd love a confirmation that the above graphics card is ok. If not, what is the minimum graphics card i should be getting to run current games?

The 6450 is a mid level card at best, more in the "upper low end" class. It's not a bad card for the price, and you should be able to upgrade it later without too much hassle. The 6450 sits at about the same level as a GeForce 210. Not much firepower at all.
