Here are the system specs from Mojang who make Minecraft..
You don't need to spend a fortune on the system, but as with all things, the more you pay the better the performance is.

Minimum Requirements:

CPU: Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon 64 (K8) 2.6 GHz
RAM: 2GB
GPU (Integrated): Intel HD Graphics or AMD (formerly ATI) Radeon HD Graphics with OpenGL 2.1
GPU (Discrete): Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT or AMD Radeon HD 2400 with OpenGL 3.1
HDD: At least 200MB for Game Core and Other Files
Java 6 Release 45


Recommended Requirements:

CPU: Intel Core i3 or AMD Athlon II (K10) 2.8 GHz
RAM: 4GB
GPU: GeForce 2xx Series or AMD Radeon HD 5xxx Series (Excluding Integrated Chipsets) with OpenGL 3.3
HDD: 1GB
Latest release of Java 8 from java.com


Software Requirements:

Minecraft Release 1.6 or newer. Older versions will need to be updated to current versions
Please note that some users experience issues playing Minecraft while using a mismatched version of Java for their operating system (32 or 64 bit), while using certain versions of Java 7, or while multiple versions of Java are installed

Does the PC allow you to download other items?

I see little reason it wouldn't at least download. Might not install if you don't meet certain hardware requirements though.

I think it is downloading just not installing right.

OptiPlex are Dell's business computers, not really designed for home use.

This is also a slimline case so you need to make sure that any graphics card you buy will fit inside the case.

Most modern PCs come with Intel HD Graphics built in and if you have that you wont need a graphics card. This OptiPlex probably does not have Intel HD graphics as the CPU is too old.

So overall this maybe was not the best purchase, any chance you can send it back?
