Need serious help building a new PC (PLEASE)

Hey guys, I was wondering if someone could help me pick out some good parts so I won't be making the wrong decisions. So anyways I live in the Philippines and finding some good parts at a reasonable price is pretty much impossible. And we have very little PC stores here that have a decent stock of parts, but I found shop near my area and if someone could help me pick out some parts out aside from the case and GPU since I already bought the MSI Armor RX470 4GB through Amazon. Anyways here is the link to their stock. https://www.pcquickbuys.com/download/pcqb-flier.pdf

Any help would be greatly appreciated and my budget is around 19k-20k in my currency which is Philippine Peso

  1. 20,000 PP (Your currency) is roughly about 400 USD. So, you will have a bit of trouble finding a few decent parts. However, if I were you, I'd go to sites like PCPartPicker or NewEgg and try to find a set of variables that works for you. If you're on such a low budget, I'd suggest looking for used parts, and sticking to the mid-ranged PC parts. The RX 470 in USD is, at its lowest, about 150 USD- a good chunk of your budget. If you're looking for cheap gaming, go with a MicroATX or Mini-ITX motherboard, and the cooresponding case (MATX or mITX) You'll want to find a cheaper, yet reliable CPU, preferably a more up-to-date one, but older ones with power won't hurt, and they're cheaper. Something in the new Kaby Lake variety, or Skylake/Haswell. I'd suggest the i3's. RAM, memory and cooling tends to be the stickler in these builds. I'd go with light RAM, around 8GBs of something cheaper, like Patriot Viper or Team Elite. As for memory, at that price, you'll struggle to find an SSD that comfortably fits in the price range- so, for the sake of movability, stick with Hard Drives. Preferably a 500gb (which NewEgg currently has some refurbs on sale for about 25 USD, so not bad) Simply put- you're going to have to do a bit of seeking around the web/local contributors for parts. Good luck, my friend.

    For a gaming PC, get the fastest LGA1151 i5 CPU and a compatible motherboard that also takes DDR4. Because you've already got a graphics card everything else is hype with the one exception being SSD vs HDD. If you can afford it, an SSD can really speed things up.

    If you want the speed of an SSD and the price of an HDD you can do what I did for a couple of years (and many others did when SSD prices were higher than they are now) and that would be to have a relatively modest SSD of 100GB or 250GB on which to load your software, but keep all of your data on a separate HDD. Assuming you'll be using Windows, after you've installed the OS on the SSD you can right-click the Documents folder, go into Settings and on the Location tab move your user direcories to the HDD.
  3. You should go for the Rx 480, but with an AMD X4 860k, which is a very good value chip for your price range.
