It just means the graphics card/processor are powerful and geared towards gaming, but that doesnt mean it isnt suitable for simple tasks you would do on a regular computer, infact it will probably last longer, so yeh it will be fine for you go for it.

PS If you copy/paste the specs for the pc in the additional info bit, along with how much your paying, then ill tell you if its worth it etc…
