Either one will do actually. But, I'll really suggest getting one quad-core CPU because there are upcoming games that are able to support up to four cores. And, the video card will stop you from playing all the latest games. Scratch a little bit more for the 5770. If you really cannot get the 5770, try getting the 5750 at least.

1. Get one of these

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&Description=amd%20callisto&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=20

They are all actually an AMD 955 with locked cores. Unlock the cores and save yourself $70.

2. Yes dreamer is talking about gpu. Best choices are $60-gts 240, $80-gts250, $120-5750, $170-5770.
