Hello
That monitor resolution is quite low. I imagine just about any dual core with a decent video card would handle anything.

I recommend, since you like Intel:
Core i5 CPU 2.4 Ghz or better
P55 motherboard
GTX 460
4 gigs DDR3 ram
I'll assume the case comes with a PSU, but you'll need at least 400W for the GTX 460.

Oh yeah, if you can get the Samsung F3 hard drive where you live, get that.

I guess the prices in Romania are a little higher than what we see in the states.

There is no way you could fit an i5-750 and a GTX 460 in a $600-700 build.


I would recommend an i3-530 (overclock the heck out of it if you need extra performance). ~$130

The GTX 460 is probably your best bet. At lower resolutions you will get a better value out of the 768MB than the 1GB. ~$240

2GB of memory is probably good enough. I went with the first brand I trust, Corsair. ~$60

With the motherboard there are many more things that need to be considered: mATX vs. ATX, onboard i3 support, USB3, SLI support. This is the cheapest P55 board I could find that explicitly supports i3's. ~$125

I prefer WD Black drives for the best performance. The 640GB is the cheapest drive with a 64MB cache. ~$85

Altogether it comes to ~$640. I'm not familiar with the site or the language so that is before any discounts or shipping.


If you need a PSU, I would go with the Xigmatek NRP-PC502. It is more than powerful enough, with high efficiency, and has two PCI-E connectors. It's never a good idea to skimp on the power supply. You could make due with one of the 400W Corsair models, but you would have to use a 4-pin molex to 6-pin PCI-E adapter to install a GTX 460. ~$90
