  1. I'd suggest you to upgrade your PSU first. Then get the GTX770 and then the CPU

    A 600 watt decent quality psu should be more than enough.

    looks like prices in Greece are even worse than in country where I live. (Latvia)

    this one is a bit overkill, but should be okay

    Okay, this psu looks good for the price : http://www.e-shop.gr/product?id=PER.641153
    Actually I was going to recommend a 650w-700w but what you say is true, man they are really overpriced in greece :( . Nevertheless, If you think the above psu i mentioned is more than you want to spend it this will be enough : http://www.e-shop.gr/product?id=PER.810907
    Although, I really think you should buy Cx600 than rs600, as when it comes to psus, quality is the first thing you want to consider.
