If your budget is really tight, i would suggest this rig if possible......

intel i3-540
4gb ddr3 ram
nvidia GTX450

the rig above should run most games at high settings if your monitor resolution is below 1920x1080

Black ops might lag a little

Regarding your setup1 and setup 2,

setup 1 : processor is great for gaming, but that graphic card will make your life miserable

setup 2: Balanced but not future proof, the i3-540 is cheaper but faster than the e7500

The GTS450 will handle that resolution just fine. You can overclock the crap out of that little i3 as well.
