what ? thats useless , he hasnt bought the PC yet .. he is going to get one not bought.
That website is for to scan your current PC and check requirements.
However if you referring to only system requirements for specific game and not comparison still that website is bad..


@op i will get you a PC ready. lemme see how prices are there in that website , back in a jiffy

Lol i dunno i just clicked "UNSELECT THIS SOLUTION" as the option i was getting and boom it worked XD

anyways can you get a budget extended to atleast 20k ?
because that CPU you selected is very old and bad for performance in current gaming gen.
thats what i highly reommend!

a minimum of something like this is needed to maxout games at good fps:

HDD:WESTERN DIGITAL 1TB BLUE 3.5" SATA (WD10EZEX)- ₱2,800.0
Mobo:ASUS M5A78L-M LX3 - ₱2,150.00
CPU:AMD FX-6300 - ₱5,350.00
Case:AEROCOOL V3X GREEN - ₱1,350.00
PSU:THERMALTAKE SMART 530W 80+ - ₱2,500.00
Ram:CORSAIR XMS3 4GB 1333MHZ (CMX4GX3M1A1333C9) - ₱1,550.00
CD/Dvd writer:LITEON IHAS-122 22X SATA BLACK - ₱820.00
GPU:ASUS HD7770 1GB GDDR5 128BIT (HD7770-DC-1GD5-V2) - ₱5,950.00
Grand Total ₱22,470.00

This is what i can recommend you.
because atleast a FX 6300 like CPU is needed for current games and to get good fps without any bottlenecks.
You can select GPU to like 7750 however i saw the price differnce is a bit. so chose 7770 which is basicly an entry level 1080p gaming GPU and would be best for youre resolution.

So again Recommended to save up at least 20-22k amount for budget and get build like something i mentioned for good performance + WORTH FOR PRICE!

oh i didnt see Powercolor in list :p  and power color is like AMDs own manufacturer
i chose Asus because of an overclockable version maybe :D 

and yeah that build will last you long for that many years with that resolution!
(you can however get a 7790 or 650ti boost if you can arrange few more bucks for 1080p resolution with medium end gaming, but 7770 is good enough for that resolution to get good fps atleast 40~ at medium - high settings)

would it be wise for me to buy the sapphire r7-260x for 6800 php and total to 23,300 k and will it future proof me in case i go 1080p?

R7 260x is basicly another 7790 so yeah its a good choice too. its again a fine entry level 1080p card!
to get you to medium settings. (some benchmarks says average 30fps can be attained at 1080p with ultra in BF4 like game, and max of around 50, in bf4 like games). Something like at this resolution: 1600x900 you can easily get good 40average fps at high in most of upcoming games.

That card for the price you mentioned is far more worth than a 7770.

however if you want a bit of 20% extra performance for 1080p a 650ti boost 2gb is best.

Just let me know if you can extend budget for GPU any further or not? if not than R9 260x is unbeatable for price. just select it :) 
Also to mention, make sure you get a decent cooling with R7 260x. i mean a brand like MSI, , gigabyte or Asus's DirectCU II version, is good because those card run hot!
good luck.

My secondary desktop has a 7790 in it, and it does pretty dang good. And I've used it at 720,1080, and 1680x1050, which are all higher than you listed. If the 260x is a rebrand (which is funny, because the 7790 was/is kind of a backwards brand of that gen) it's a good choice too.

eXactly.

and for manufacture it sometime needed to be checked if provided GPU has a good cooling system or not especially in case of AMD GPUs cuz they run hotter than any nvidia, Some not important factors like: size (not necessary), or maybe reputation.
some thing like MSI, Gigabyte, Asus assure you best GPU of the current model. or even Powercolor is a good brand too.
