I need help building a budget gaming pc. I asked my friends the cheapest place to buy computer parts here in the Philippines and most of them recommended this site: http://www.pcgilmore.com.ph/controller.do?action=doityo...

I need help building one off this site because Im not very familiar with this kind of stuff

I know the parts they have is very limited but I dont want to get into too much trouble looking for specific parts because its not that easy since most site dont ship here in PH. And even if they do the shipping is almost half of the item itself.

My budget is 20,000 on th e CPU alone, without the monitor,keyboard, mouse,etc (I will be buying them elsewhere)
If youre curious about the price in USD just divide it by 43, to get the approximate amount

PS: I will be mostly playing LoL (League of Legends) and maybe some upcoming mmorpgs
Here are some examples of mmorpgs I play/played
AION
Raiderz
neverwinter
perfect world
I dont expect to be able to play these type of games in high settings with my budget so dont worry about that.

SOrry for the long text and my english.

What are the components that you don't need ? do you need a monitor ? Peripherals ?

I pretty much only need everything that would go inside the tower/case

Yes I will do that. I just want to get more suggestions, not that I dont trust the list you gave me. Having more options is always nice. But thanks for the reminder :D

Do you mind answering another question?
How's this one compared to the list you gave me?

Intel i5-3570 3.4Ghz
4Gb DDR3 1333
Intel H77 Chipset Motheroard
500GB SATA Hard Disk 7200RPM
NVIDIA GT630 2GB DDR3

It cost a little over $700 but comes with all peripherals and monitor (nothing fancy though) and an os installed.

If I go with your build I would spend roughly the same because I still have to buy all peripherals, a monitor, and an os.

So considering I would spend roughly the same which one actually has better specs?

The GPU is WAY worst . The GT 630 is a bad card for gaming.
