    Yes all you need is your Steam account. You just have to re-download or create a backup in Steam and then transfer it over to your new desktop.

    yes. once you buy a steam game on your account, you can log into any computer and download the game. with steam cloud, you can even transfer the game data as well so you don't have to start over on a new computer.

    keep in mind no one else can play it unless they are signed onto your account.
