  1. If you built it using all used/reclaimed parts then probably. New? Not a chance. Especially if you need an OS.
  2. No chance getting a gaming PC for $250 new, the best option is to look on ebay and amazon for a GTX 750ti PC.
  3. This is about the best you can get with new parts. It can run most games at low/medium settings at 1080p:

    @OP, if one was to buy new, this is the lowest i'd go for good gaming performance at 1080p.
