    I understand that there are dealers who will ship to Colombia. Don't limit your options to just eBay. Try Googling for specific components that you are after, then choose the dealer with the best (cheapest) option for shipping to Colombia.

    Overall performance of the FX-6100 and of the i3-3220 are roughly the same. But the i3-3220 draws less power, and is therefore the recommended CPU.

    CPU: Intel i3-3220

    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77-HD3

    Video Card: Either a GTX650 or a Radeon HD 7750

    RAM: Kingston HyperX Genesis 8GB (2 x 4GB) dual channel {part no. khx1600c9d3k2/8g}

    HDD: 500GB SATA, either Western Digital Blue, or Seagate Barracuda

    PSU: Seasonic SSR-360GP 360W is recommended first choice. Second choice (if Seasonic unavailable, or too expensive) is Silverstone SST-ST40F-ES 400W.

    Although only 300W is required for the system if using the above components, a slightly higher output PSU is better in case of component upgrades etc.
