I'm most worried about number three...
For starters, good luck with finding a good red dot for under $100.....Remember you get what you pay for.
2) If your looking for the perfect MOA it would be the 2 MOA which you can find on the CompM3 Aimpoint for around $450 if you shop. The most common is the 4 MOA on sights like the H-1 Aimpoint or the Eotech series.
3) Depending on what if any front sight you are using, you can use a riser or nothing at all. I for one believe in having a back-up system in case your electronic optics fail in the middle battle. If you do have a front sight, you will have to have the riser to raise the elevation of the optic to co-witness the red dot with the front sight. This is easy to install and costs from $75 to anywhere over $100. LaRue makes a good one as well as A.R.M.S.
I hope this makes sense. If you have any questions please ask!
4) In regards to which is better, that is going to be preference of the user. I prefer the red dot which appears to be more crisp, and have found the Eotech sights with the circle to become blurry.
