Need help with build.

Hello all, I need help with a build. My budget is no more that 300 bucks. The things I am going to be using it for is old games and ps1, nes, SNES emulation. The old games I am going to be playing are Diablo 2 LOD, Warcraft 3, Star Wars The Old Republic, Star Trek Online, Path of Exile, Titan Quest, and Warframe. I would like to play these game at no minimum of Medium Settings. I have a Xbox one X so that's what I play my AAA titles on. Can this be done? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you all.

Yeah , watch scrapyard wars

you'll be buying a used pc and doing some minor upgrades to it for 300$. don't try to buy all new parts with 300$ you'll end up with a very slow low quality build.

Something like this? I don't know if this is sufficient enough, but Vega 8 is enough to run some newish games, so it should be fine.

Main PC:  MacBook Air (M1, 2020), 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage; running macOS, but waiting for Linux to be ported to the M1

It's been 14 years since I have done anything with PCS. That's why I ask
