There are very few PCs that will not work with linux. If you want to
determine if there
are sound card drivers for this particular machine, I suggest contact the
seller and ask
them what hardware the sound card is. Most likely it is part of the
chipset. If it is, ask what chipset that is, and what software drivers are
used for it.
Then, check the supported sound card list here:

But be careful about this particular auction, becuase it is located in
Australia, and states pickup in Brisbane or courier from Brisbane. If you
in Brisbane that may be okay, but ask what the shipping cost will be. Also
that this seller is only accepting money order or bank transactions, no
