For $250 US, you really can't get much of anything. This is the best I could come up with. You'll have to run newer title on low settings and you'll get sorta playable performance. I suggest saving up some more money and building something you'll enjoy for a couple years.

You will need an other psu because that one included isn't going to be a good one

it's a $250 computer of course it isn't going to be high quality.

Seconded. This request is simply unrealistic.

At this point he should be looking less at PC parts picker and more keeping an eye on Craigslist.
