Wow, i even don't know how to answer to that..
I guess, thank you for the effort making that clear for me.

That "light gaming" was just bull**** by her, to keep the cost as low as possible. I'm 100% sure that she'll buy BF3, etc.. right after she gets that PC. (She keeps borrowing my "Dragon Eyes" to play it)
Once a gamer, always a gamer.

I heard, that 750k usually runs super cool, even on stock cooler. Do they?
I was told 45C under load.

I'm about to order my stuff.

Oh, 1 more thing, does that HD7750 include a DVI-VGA adapter??

If the GPU has a DVI-I port, then it will usually ship with a VGA adapter (or at least, it will work with one). If it has DVI-D ports, it won't.

You can see the difference in the pin layouts for each DVI standard here: http://www.diffen.com/difference/DVI_vs_VGA
(scroll down to the chart of DVI pin configurations)

Alternatively, there are many HD7750's sold with VGA connections on them: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131481 (example)
You may be best served just to seek one of these out.

If you think BF3 is going on this machine, then the best budget class CPUs for that will be the Athlon X4 chips, as that game does take advantage of multiple thread/cores pretty well. If you can swing an HD7770 or GTX650Ti that wouldn't hurt.

Athlon X4 750k+7750=best choice.
If you want to save more money just get A8 without a separate gpu.
