and then you are going to need a drive to read CD/DVD and install Windows, which costs about $20-$30, unless you already have one.
Then you might need some cords/fans (if needed)
$250 cant really get you good parts, might need to spend a bit more.
Especially if you wanted 4gb

The barebones that Atomic recommends it pretty good, but I know that cyrsis, and gears of war, all recommend 3.0GHz processors, so you might want a new cpu and definitely a new PSU. So, you might not be able to stay under or at the 250 mark.

Cheers!

That barebone kit that Atomic Rooster linked and the 4870 will run those games just fine.

You will need a new PSU Though for that GPU,
