I already have
GPU - Powercolor HD5570 1GB GDDR3
CPU - Piledriver 6-Core FX-6300 3.5Ghz
RAM - 4GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3
PSU - Coolermaster Thunder M 520W Modular (is this good enough?)
Case - Coolermaster N300

For my mobo, I'm choosing between
Asrock 970 Extreme3 and
Asrock Z68 Extreme4

But if anyone can suggest a mobo that costs less than the two and does the job, I'd appreciate it.

I'm not a heavy gamer so i't just for light gaming. I only play Dragon Age, the Sims3 and some ps2 games on emulator. I do use Photoshop and Flash though.

Thanks. : )

The Z68 board is for a line of different CPUs, you'll have to go with the Extreme3.

i dont know how much the hd5570 costs you, but i think a hd7750 shouldnt be much more and will be way more powerfull. atleast where i live its 10€ difference so really worth going for it. also a corsair cx430m would also deliver enough power and is a more trusted brand

Thank you so much for the suggestions. Unfortunately, Newegg doesn't deliver in the Philippines. I'll just look for these in local stores.
