i got a 1440x900 and the cpu still matters. for example black ops doesnt do good with bad cpus, its more cpu intesive. people with fast dual cores are steugling when slow quads are beating them. i would recomend getting the AMD Phenom II X4 955 and over clocking it to about 3.6ghz. the 460 is good.
dont cheap out on hdd, it really determines how fast your pc is besides gaming. The samsung f3 500gb is $50. dont cheap out on mobo, and if it supports 1600mhz ram get the GSKILL Ripjaws 1600mhz 2x2gb cl9 kit.(not ripjaw x). i forget the name but someone who helped me in my thread got almost 1800mhz and cas8, thats good!!!
