^ Frankly for that price, that is a good deal...But you dont know how is the quality of the PSU that comes with it...
And refurbished PCs, and warranty for just 90 days are the 2 main turn offs...

As for the graphics card, NO you can use that 3650 in that PC as it doesnt have any AGP slot and the card is an AGP card...
You would need a PCIe x16 graphics card for it to work with the PC...

^ Well you can try building yourself one...but I doubt you could beat the value of that system though...
You can add a $75-$100 PCIe graphics card to that system and maybe an extended warranty ?? then it would be a good build...
Just get more info about those refurbs and see if they have any additional warranty...
Even these should do fine...But mind your that you will have pretty limited biodegradability based on the mobo...
