  1. Other than visible physical signs of damage there is no way to tell without buying a new PSU and plugging it in and seeing what happens.
  2. There are no physical signs of damage on cpu, ram and gpu except motherboard. Indeed i'm gonna get a new motherboard and PSU, after that it will be a lottery, huh?

    Basically yes
  4. The only other way you could find out if they are good is to test them in a known good computer one at a time.
