Sure. That could work. CQ isn't very resource-intensive, so it doesn't take a good computer to work with it. That being said, I'd look for something similar on Newegg, since Newegg is USUALLY cheaper.
Shh!  I'm taking a break from reality.

That should work for software mode, but for opengl mode (i.e, gzdoom) you should really consider getting an Nvidia branded graphics card; gzdoom has been known to have problems on integrated graphics and AMD chips, though I tried gzdoom on a core i5 laptop with integrated graphics and it ran perfectly.

Off topic: I personally would never buy anything weaker than a core i5 for a CPU

Still has Intel dedicated graphics but definitely better. That's a good PC for that price range; getting a Nvidia chip would be a bit more expensive.

Out of intel, Nvidia, and Amd I like Nvidia 49% and Amd 51% it is very close together but I just like both Nvidia and Amd.

While that IS a beast of a pc, I don't have $1000 to spend on a computer, and you can bet your bottom that that will be much cheaper on newegg.

Really I think buying the parts of a pc and assembling them together is much cheaper than buying the whole thing. The con is that it will take a long time put it together.

Yeah, but you have to have A LOT of precision to get the computer to run correctly. I want an already built one that will be cheap and will run GZDooM/DooM Builder/Anything CQ/Internet well.

No. No eBay. Not for anything computer related.
