No it's not a high end gaming PC..Poor motherboard chipset, low quality case & PSU and low perfomance GPU.
GDDR5 is higher speed for GPU

First of all I would definitely recommend to get a new monitor. It will make your gaming experience better and you won't regret it! As for the PC, it has very powerful GPU a fast CPU and it's fully upgrade able to the newest AMD CPUs that will come! The only thing I would add later is an SSD!

It stands for Solid State Drive, it a hard disk that doesn't use mechanical parts only flash memory so it's faster and makes your programs load faster. It's disadvantage is that it's usually small (120GB) and you only load operating system and basic programs there

It means he will have to buy another HDD for Games, programes, Data etc. probably SATA.
