Help me build my first gaming rig

I've already put together a build. If ever you have better suggestions than this build, please do say it. I really need some suggestions. I need some confirmation if I'm in the right track. Btw, I'm living in the Philippines so my choices are limited. The pricelist of the shop that I'm buying from is on this pdf file. http://chelseycomputer.com/Pricelist/Pricelist2014.pdf
My maximum budget would be Php 47000.

Build 1
Processor: Intel I5 4670k
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-G1 Sniper B5 ATX
GPU: Sapphire R9-280x Toxic
PSU: Corsair 950tx 950 watts
Ram: Kingston Hyper-X 8gb DDR3 1600mhz
Storage: WD Blue 1Tb Sata3
Casing: NZXT M-59 Steel Midtower
Total Cost: Php 46950

Planning to overclock when I've upgraded the mobo. Please help me guys. Thanks!:)

  1. Look no further, you've already chosen the best of the best build.
    That R9 280x Toxi is the best version of that card. And we already know that i5 4670k is the best of best. Everything in your build is perfect, from the cabinet to RAM to PSU.
    But it will better if you get a Z87 mobo, probably a MSI Z87 G43 mobo, which is a very value for money product.

    Simply, go for it. Superb!
  2. The only thing I see to nitpick is the psu. No way would you need 950w so I'm sure you could save some money there. Corsair's Enthusiast series psu are good, but they tend to be overpriced here in the states when compared to Antec, XFX, or SeaSonic

    i agree, but 950w PSU is TOTAL overkill...550w is plenty for this build, 700w if you plan to go SLI...but you could save a lot there i guess...

    EDIT : LOL @ CTurbo we always see the same things at the same time ! :D
