Looking at used Computers

Recently ive been looking at buying a used computer with decent components for me to ugrade. Im doing this because its much much cheaper than buying new or building my own, even though i would rather just get a new computer. Heres the specs to one that i found for $600 What do you guys think?

Processor: AMD 960T stock @ 3.0 GHz (Mine is o.c @ 4.1Ghz)
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Desktop Memory Model F3-8500CL7D-8GBRL (O.C @1333 mhz)
Mother Board: ASRock 870 Extreme3 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
CPU Cooler: Antec Kuhler H2O 620 Liquid Cooling System
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon 5770 1GB
Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1
Power Supply: Thermaltake TR2 W0388RU 600W ATX 12V v2.2 Power Supply
Case: Sentey Black Box Series BX1-4237 v2.2 Black SECC 0.7mm / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Monitor: HP 2311x 23" LED Monitor 1080P Ultra-Slim

I know that it is a bit pricy since i would have to upgrade at least the gpu and ram, and i havent heard too many good things about the psu. Do you guys think i should go check this one out or just keep waiting?
