It'll play the games but not very well and it'll do Photoshop.

Yea, the a10 isn't bad though, if she just got a 650 ti to go in there even, it would blaze through the Sims and mine craft no problem

Also it comes with a free game download, so I assumed it would be ok for basic games? :/

A 650 ti is a video card with a little more power than the one in the computer you listed, it would be a good improvement. All that video card in the computer you listed is good for is bwosing the internet really

With little gaming then you will be just fine.

It will run those games perfectly fine and if/when you need more beautiful graphics you can upgrade a bit.
