I need to buy a cheap PC that can do typical office work like photo editing such as photoshop, multiple google chrome tabs, email, microsoft excel etc, maybe a powerpoint here and there.
It doesn't have to be a monster, just a pc that is good enough for such things, I found this for a very good price. Do you guys think this will do?

What price, vendor/source? Warranties?

I will say no.

4 GB RAM is not enough.

A 1 TB 7200 rpm HDD will be slow.

CPU may not be up to the task either.

Take a close look at the software you will be using for your work.

Most applications have some listing of hardware requirements in the form of "minimum", "recommended", and "best".

You do not want "minimum" and you do want as much "best" as you can afford.

16 GB RAM is my recommendation - but do ensure that the motherboard will support a 2 x 8GB dual channel RAM configuration.

240 GB (or bigger) SSD for the boot drive. 1 TB HDD only for storage, not the OS and frequently used apps.

Just my thoughts on the matter.

Marginal at best.

4GB RAM
Unspecified Celeron.
Spinning HDD


4GB RAM is just barely enough for basic browser use. Multiple tabs open will kill it.
Photoshop use will be like watching paint dry.
Likewise, Excel and PowerPoint.

The HDD needs to go completely. Replace with a SATA III SSD.

"Is this good enough?
No.
