Good day everyone.

I apologize if I put my inquiry in the wrong category. I have read a lot on your forums and guidelines about building a budget gaming pc.

But my issue were finding the same parts here in my country. Most of them are not available here in the Philippines.

So I just decided to build my own using PCPartPicker and follow the guidelines on how to build a budget gaming pc and I have come up with the below items:

Processor: AMD Vishera FX-6300 3.5Ghz (4.1ghz turbo) Processor
VGA: Sapphire R7-265 2GB GDDR5
Mobo: AM3+ Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3p
HDD Internal: Seagate Barracuda Desktop 6-Gb/s 500GB Hard Drive ST500DM002
DVD: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer *OEM*
PSU: Corsair CX500 500Watts 80+ Bronze

Now I'm left on what to choose for the best value for the money for my RAM and Casing.
Below are the parts and there prices here in the Philippines.

Gskill Ripjaws x 8gb 4gbx2 Ddr3 1600 CL9 (F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL) - PHP 3970
Gskill Sniper 8GB 4gbx2 DDR3 1600 CL9 (F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2) - PHP 4130
Corsair Vengeance 8gb 2x4gb ddr3 1600 CL9 (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9) - PHP 4250

Casing Sorry for the long list. :D 
RaidMax Super Hurricane Black/White Mid-Tower Case - PHP 1660
Bitfenix Merc Alpha ATX - PHP 1860
Cougar Solution ATX Gaming Case - PHP 1900
RaidMax Super Viper Black/Red Mid-Tower Case - PHP 1990
Cougar Solution AF-2 Case - PHP 2000

Case - any mid-tower is fine. Which one do you like the most?

For the memory, get whichever you like, they have the same specs but I personally prefer Corsair than G.SKILL since I've been using it for a long time and never had any problem with it.
For the case, all of it are perfectly compatible with your build, just get whichever you like whether it's about style, looks, price or whatever, your choice.

The conclusion: "Get whatever you like..." lol xD
