I might be very wrong, so someone correct me if I am, but I don't think it'll do the best for most AAA games unless you lower the settings down a notch. It'll work fine for esports games though.

that pc looks like a relatively good deal enough to pump out 100+ frames in competitive titles like overwatch, csgo, fortnite

Agreed, but have to price out the cost of that gpu.

For $360 that should get you a pretty decent 1080p 60 Hz gaming experience in all but the most CPU bound games for a couple years yet.

The CPU is getting a little dated now but if you plan it out you can save up during that time and replace the Mobo, CPU, Ram and GPU as you find them lacking in what you want to play. 

 

You should be able to reuse the Case, PSU, and SSD in the new PC as well.

Without knowing your total budget it's hard to say.

If you're looking used then I imagine bang for the buck is something that is important to you.

Right now, I'd be waiting to see what AMD does with their Ryzen 3000 series CPUs and GPUs at CES.

 

If you had to buy right now, I'd probably be looking at a Ryzen 2600, 16 GB DDR4 3000+ Mhz ram and a decent B450 Motherboard and a RX580/590 or Vega 56 GPU paired with a 1080p Freesync capable monitor. 

 

 

That should be a sweet spot for a very capable PC at a reasonable price.
