Hay guys, so I'm thinking about buying a second hand desktop, and I believe I can get quite a good one with my limited cash.

 

Purpose: mainly video editing and song/audio composing (for fun only, not professional), play light-mid games such as League of Legends, CS, WOW, GTA5 etc.  no hard requirement on gaming graphic.

 

Budget: around $600 US dollars

CPU: (http://www.cpubenchmark.net/common_cpus.html) I think anything not too low on this chart should be okay?

GPU: (http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/common_gpus.html) anything not too low on this chart should be okay?

Mother board: I have no idea on this...

Audio card: as long as it's not too bad...

Case: something like cooler master that cools the system well in hot summer

Internet: has wireless function

Monitor/Mouse/Keyboard: not worrying much about them

 

 I don't know much about computers but I'll show you a desktop I found that I thought was good enough, any comment?

That pc you linked looks like a good deal. The cpu and video card in that system alone is worth about $600.
