The Athlon X4 750K being pretty hard to find in your country, I couldn't really get anything better than this :

It doesn't make a lot of sense, but it will still run well.

There's a CPU cooler that comes in the box of the CPU. It's not necessary to get an after-market one, but you won't be able to overclock if you don't have one. Problem is getting one gets above your budget.

Take a better GPU if you can spend 50 more take nvidia GTX 750 or GTX 750 ti which is just 20 dollars more
