A good all around system (not for gaming that requires 2 $500 video cards and water cooling) CPU alone is $190, Ram $50, HDD $40, Windows $100, Keyboard & mouse $20, case & PS $35, motherboard $50 = $485 plus service and support (if you don't do your own).

This Dell offers a very solid processing power. The CPU is Intel Core i5-6400, and if you’re familiar with the Intel’s naming scheme you can see it is a 6th generation, in another words the latest, processor model. It works on four cores and the clock speed is 2.7GHz, and there is also a turbo speed up to 3.3GHz. In benchmarks the i5-6400 does well, CPU Mark giving it a score of ~6500 points. In short, it’s a processor geared towards power users. At the moment, this model is fine.

Because people still like big numbers or at least the marketing departments still think so. A 1tb HD costs a little bit less than a 240gb TLC ssd. While most computer people know the 240gb ssd, even a tlc one, will offer a much better experience and is probably sufficient for most people who aren't using a lot of multimedia it is till a smaller number in the spec sheets. I am a bit surprised Dell or somebody hasn't come up with some silly branding like turbo speed or something to sell people on smaller SSDs but so far they haven't.
A 750Ti should work with no problems. A (short) GTX 950 might fit, but I believe you'd need a PSU upgrade. Even if the current ~ 240W PSU could power a better graphics card, I'm sure it doesn't have the appropriate 6 pin power connector.

Off-hand I'd think a AMD RX460 would beat the 750ti and also doesn't require a 6 pin connector. It should be released in a couple days. You might even be able to get away with something like a 1060 with an adapter to make the 6 pin power but that might really be pushing it on power supply.It's a 120w card and assuming the PS can do most of the 240w on 12v it should work.
Thanks OP. Got one for family basic use and internet surfing computer. Ordered Sunday night and received it Tuesday afternoon with free shipping. Replacing our old 10 yr Dell that served the same purpose.
