none, you will be lucky to get a decent computer for general purpose work for $250 USD. A computer that can game decently cost a deal bit more than this (thinking $600 min or so)

Let's not get hasty. We need to know what he really meant by casual gaming. If we're talking facebook games or things like angry bird, $250 might be possible

As ColGeek suggests, your best bet will likely be to check the used market. You will not be able to build a new PC for $250 that will be able to play games, especially if you don't already have an operating system (Windows). You might find an old office PC that can be upgraded with a HD6670 or HD7750 to be able to play most games.
