The new one is your best bet. The refurbs are really old tech, they might do what you want, but the new Ryzen system will do it better and longer. Plus the new system has an SSD which I consider a necessity.

Options 1-3 Old CPU, HDD instead of SSD, lower mid range GPU.s

The refurbished PC looks the best of that bunch.

However you would be better off building something yourself.
Its easy enough and there's plenty of advice available online.
