What are you looking to play?
I don't think you'd be happy with that machine.
This will play some games, but is very under powered for a gaming machine. I want to say that is the video card I originally had in my machine when I build it five years ago.
The power supply is about the only thing in that machine, unless the storage is SSD, that would be up to par for a mid level gaming machine.
This Refurbished Gaming Machine is $100 more, but much better and looking at it you should be able to upgrade it in the future. That's really the lowest price I could find for an actual gaming machine.

Old motherboards from a few years ago with processors not really adequate for the newest games are really not the best way to start...
A B350/R5-1600-based system would be a nice start, or, you could wait and evaluate 8600K/8700K performance in a few weeks...; the 7700K is still a bit steep in price, but does well in all games, but, requires a cooler, adding expense...
