    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

    thelion's suggestion should be able to do that fine.

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