Hello every one!
What hardware is being capable of running windows vista 64 bit with aero, of course, very nice and stabile?
I don't want it to be very expensive or a prebuilt since their performance isnt too great...
I want to dual boot windows vista and windows xp and maybe ill try windows 7 (?)
Its just for old games and nostalgia...

I am thinking at getting 8 GB of ram and a core 2 quad but 775 motherboards in my country arent that good and they are expensive as most of them come în kits with pentiums (Romania)... What about first gen i5s? Any mobo suggestion?

A motherboard with the P55 chipset and a Core i5 760 should get you Vista supported drivers and decent performance.
You just read my mind... However i really dont know what GPU to choose... Im thinking at gtx 760 but i really want to test some old "smokin'" gtx 285 lol... Anyways what's the best GPU for this build? My games arent that demanding so im opened to new suggestions

On a side note, what games? There are several games people have already played with to work with Windows 10, and some not-so-demanding games would run just fine inside a virtual machine.

Not worth... About all models from gtx 200 series to a bit worse chips from 700 series (like gtx 750ti) are going for $24 while i can get a GTX 770 with $45 (gtx 760 has the same price)
