Sorry for the bumping but i disagree with the not happening part. Ive seen great builds worth 350$. I just need some help putting parts together available in my country. And the build you sent is over my budget.

the tricky bit is you are in the Philippines.

at your price range the best bet is an A10-5800K system

A $450 machine will *barely* run BF3 multi and FC3 on low. The only thing that might make it playable is your resolution.

Here is a thread for the top end of your budget. Don't go less than quad core.

The g2020 paired with a 7770 will not barely run bf3 on low and if i go cheap with the mobo, case and ram ill have a gaming machine (that cant really encode that fast, multitask that much, and only has 2 cores) but i kinda want an apu rig since i can game for a while without a gpu then get a high end gpu. Since the a10 5800k competes with the i3 in cpu performance i think the apu is a good "investment", IMHO.

Im doing this as a fun build but it should also preform well and all the people saying it wont preform or its not possible thats not true lol i built a fx 4100 system with a gts 450 and it killed far cry 3 med settings 1080p 50fps avg. Go with my build and OC the cpu and you have a decent build......... for now.

Just download it from any torrent site. [Joking]

the cheapest 7 OS is $100 [Windows 7 home premium 32/64 bit]

so if u can get a little over budget get it. if u can't there is a few solutions:-
1.If u have a friend with this OS ask him for the dvd.
2.Borrow it from any friend/store...
3.install any OS u have [like windows Xp etc..] until u save for 7
