I'm not sure if you can squeeze any more out of that budget, but here's a whole new build for $595:

If it absolutely has to be under $566, here's the same build with 4GB of RAM instead of 8GB:

Your fps is mainly a function of your graphics card.

For just a CPPU, mobo and ram - you can get Intel or AMD (as above) CPU. Intel might be a i5 4670k with a ASRock Z87 Extreme 4 mobo and GSkill 2 x 4GB 1866 RAM. And you might want a Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler. What's your budget?

If you just want to upgrade a few things, you can get the latest Intel i5(like i7Baby mentioned, which is a better processor than that AMD anyway), and a much better video card, etc, all for $589 here: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3rtPB
If you decide you don't want the video card, you can cut that out and spend $438.

I'm not entirely sure, honestly, that's just a collection of parts. If you go to that link and click on the individual parts, you may be able to find retailers that ship to Bulgaria, but I'm not 100% sure how different the prices will be unfortunately.

Edit: That said, you may be able to search local retailers for those specific parts and find them at equivalent prices.

US PC shops don't ship anywhere overseas. They seem to have some agreement to keep their discounted prices within the USA.

But you can pay to get it shipped to an USA address who then will ship it to you. Another BUT - USA shipping prices are ridiculously high.

So have a look in Europe. BUT probably not UK - they seem to have even higher prices than here in Australia.

Yep, that seems like a good idea. That processor and everything will last you awhile. I would recommend getting an aftermarket CPU cooler as well, as the stock one isn't very good, but with that set up you can save up for a good GPU and not have to worry about being bottlenecked anywhere else.

Edit: Don't forget to pick a solution if you're all set. :)

These days they are roughly the same price, so get the 1866's.

If you can afford a bit extra, I would actually get some Trident X 1600 instead of the Ripjaws, that's because the Trident X 1600 has very good timings. 1600 MHz @ 7 CAS latency is better than 1866 MHz @ 10 CAS latency, in my opinion. If that's not an option, however, then yeah, get the 1866 MHz.
