A little bit of gaming, its a huge upgrade from my laptop. I also need it to run music production programs like reason, ableton and pro tools.

Seems like a pretty good deal to me, even though the processor and graphics card are a bit "outdated", it looks like decent specs for the price.

You will be able to run most of the things you referenced just fine.
