    items are cheap...thanks for the help but i have no idea on how to select parts that are perfectly compatible...maybe you can help me to decide which is which...thanks
  3. i can suggest parts, however with that budget youd be best to go with amd, and dont expect to be playing new games on high to med. It will probably be more like low-med. Anyway give me a few minutes and i will put a build together
  4. im going to pick the parts out on newegg, since i dont know the currency of the sight you provided, but you can jsut search for the parts on that wesite and they should be the same price wise
  5. Best answer
    ok for an intel setup this is what i chose. (i really recommend amd for a budget like that..)

    Power supply ( will be plenty of power) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171046

    CPU (chose this because it was the cheapest ivy bridge which is the one that supports 1600 ram) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116887

    Mobo (cheap, supports parts, and has usb 3.0) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130682

    RAM (good company, and is clocked at what you want) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145345

    Case (not sure whether this will be on your website or not, but if you get a cheap mid tower atx case you'll be set) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811154095

    HD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148767

    GPU (comes with farcry 3, excerpt from newegg review "This card performs well. I'm running it in a pci-e 2.0 slot but i haven't seen the fps drop below 40. I play Mw3, hitman: absolution, skyrim, dirt 3, max payne 3, assassins creed 3, arkham city, Bf3, and gta iv all in 1440 x 900 and on max settings with the exception of tessellation and anti aliasing which are set to medium settings. Great card for the price."

    So theres what i would suggest for an intel build, however i really would choose an amd route. For the price of the dual core intel, you can get a quad core amd. intel does excel in single threaded performance however..
  6. whoops forgot the link to the gpu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102993

    total is about 485

    i cant find those parts you mentioned from www.pcx.com.ph i hope you can help me find another which can be found from that site...my budget is from 17,000 to 21,000php i hope you can help me..tnx for your suggestions anyway...
  9. ok ill try to later today, and are both websites mentioned above okay? pcx.com.ph and pchub.com ?
  10. yeah...as long as those parts are available here in philippines...i got hard time on searching those parts on other pc shop here but theres no luck..
  11. ok sorry for the delay, today i was trying to overclock my cpu and ran into some trouble.. anyway here is what i found. the site is pretty limited however you will get a better cpu, same gpu, and all the parts are good. (motherboard isnt as fancy as the newegg one)

    CPU- http://pcx.com.ph/components/processors/intel-core-i3-3220-3-3g-3mb.html

    MOBO- http://pcx.com.ph/components/motherboards-1/asrock-h77m-vsl-usb3.html

    HD- http://pcx.com.ph/components/storage/internal-hard-drives/500gb-hitachi-sata-7200rpm-1.html

    RAM- (buy 2 of these modules, they are better then having 1 8gb and cheaper then the other RAM also this ram is really good, and easy to overclock to 1600) http://pcx.com.ph/components/memory/corsair-xms3-4gb-xms3-cmx4gx3m1a1333c9-1x4.html

    GPU- (good brand i like my powercolor also cheapest) http://pcx.com.ph/powercolor-hd7770-1gb-ddr5-hdmi.html

    POWERSUPPLY- (good wattage youll have plenty of power) http://pcx.com.ph/components/power-supplies/thermaltake-litepower-600w.html

    CHASIS- (cheap, not to bad looking, however if you want a different case almost all of them will work if its mid size tower) http://pcx.com.ph/peripherals/chassis/tron-tw805.html

    OPTICAl drive (if you want one) http://pcx.com.ph/components/optical-drive/sony-dru-870.html


    TOTAL=22595 little over, but this will be a solid gaming rig. (price doesnt include 1000 optical drive)

    Hope i helped, and happy building!
  12. also for these to be in your budget start by buying only one ram module, then when you have the cash you can buy another one.

    what do you mean 1 ram module???buy 1x8 rather than 2x4???
    thanks for the help...maybe if i could stretch my budget then ill be going to buy a better mobo...tnx for your help...
  14. when i said one module i meant only one stick of ram. i suggest that you buy one 4gb stick of the ram i linked you, then when you have the cash buy another one for a total of 8 gigs.
