Need help with my build for under $900 gaming whole pc (including monitor and speaker)

Hello all,

It is my first time building a PC.
Can you please give advices about my build? I will be glad if you can link the tweak you make.
Note that I live in Indonesia and not all part can be available here..

I really have tight budget, and cannot afford over $900. I even do not have budget for the OS (wishing the windows 10)

I wish to play heavy game with 60 fps, such as the witcher 3.
And for "future proof", I think i5 6500, Gtx 970 should be a must?

I Prefer to use Intel and Nvidia to reduce the consumption of power (well if you can recommend if I should use AMD, I will be glad to rethink if there is a clear reason, note that I am new to PC building).

Thank you for your help!

  1. How does the price for the RX 480 compare to the 970 in your region? I would recommend either the RX480 or 1060 depending on local prices and availability.

    Price according my local currency US$ 1 = around Rp 13.100:

    GTX 970 some of the cheapest is MSI (the one i choose at the pcpartpicker) at $365
    GTX 970 highest on average is at $462

    RX 480 reference (the cheapest) is at $277
    RX 480 XFX black edition OC version (only this one available) is at $323

    GTX 1060 is not available on credible store :(

    oh yeah, the US$900 PC I mean here is based on pc partpicker price, dont worry about my local currency.

    P.S.
    My budget if using my local currency and revaluated to USD should be around US$1.070
  3. Cheaper monitor, same GPU- different edition, you don't need an optical drive(everything works through USB and drivers are downloaded via internet), you still have room to spare.

    Thank you for your response!

    Well im looking for TN panel monitor rather than IPS one..

    And I heard that msi b150 bazooka would be best if i dont plan to OC?

    I am afraid if i dont get opticak drive because here isnt as advance as other country.

    Is there advantage if i choose evga gpu? I heard that msi is easy to configure?

    IPS monitors look better than TN panels~the quicker response time(TN) is not too noticeable either

    I have the MSI b150 bazooka running with my i5 6500, no problems, you CANNOT OC

    you can get the optical drive

    I haven't personally tried either of those company's GPUs but the cost between them is large so I would go with the EVGA, it also has good reviews

    Sadly the price between them in my country is the same :(

    woohoo bazooka then!

    well I just worried that my parts combined can have any problem now.

    I hope this will be a good build.

    Thank you!
