Hi..
I am Thinking of

Processor: Athlon II x4 640 3.0GHz 2.5mb
Mobo: Asus M4A88T-M
RAM: 4gb Geil DDR3 1333MHZ with Heatsink
ATX: Trendsonic Vision
PSU: Huntkey V-power 550w

By the way I already Have a ATI HD 5570 Graphics card that i could use for the new rig

What can you say with the parts? Kindly help me decide if these are all ok.

Kindly tell me if i need to get a better part, a new one or add some parts to this build to make it better.
My budget runs from 300 to 350 USD for the CPU only.

I do multitasking with my computer like photo editing while surfing the net, Playing HD videos, Playing music and occasionally some gaming such as Mass Effect 2, Monday night madness, Need for speed hot pursuit, etc.

DO NOT buy a Huntkey power supply they are known to explode and wreck systems. You do not want to skimp on your power supply that Huntkey says it can do 550 watts, but it really can barely output 300 watts before it explodes. For your system a 400 watt unit will be more then enough. Look for an Antec, Corsair, or Seasonic all have models around $50 to $60 that will be much much better.

These units actually put out their labelled power.

550VX 550WATTS PHP4,300
The OZC aren't as high quality as the Corsair units but are reliable and have modular cables.

Get the 400 CX that is the best for the money out of the ones you listed and it will be plenty of power for your system.

HERE ARE MY FINAL THOUGHTS:

This are the parts that i would buy:
AMD AM3 ATHLON II X4 640 3.0GHZ 2.5MB L3 PHP4,900--USD 112.21

ASUS M4A88T-M AMD 880G/SB710 DDR3 PHP4,000-- USD 91.6

SAPPHIRE HD5570 1GB DDR3 128BIT PHP2,900--USD 66.41

400CX 400WATTS PHP2,850--USD 65.27

TRENDSONIC VISION W/O PSU PHP1,950-- USD 44.66

A total of = 380.15 USD or 16,600 PHP

This is what i have now:
WESTERN DIGITAL 500GB BLUE

This is what i'll purchase in the near future:
ASUS DVDRW LIGHTSCRIBE SATA BLACK PHP1,300-- USD 29.77

Will this be great?..Are there any revision that could help me lessen the cost but the same performance or quality?

The moment I saw those specs I immediately know your from Baguio.

Get the ASUS M4A87TD-EVO instead for your mobo $70(PHP3800), it has better oc abilities though it does not have integrated graphics but you said your going to buy an hd 5570 so no need for integrated GPU.

I'm also going to buy this month.
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
ASRock 890GX EXTREME4
Palit GTX 460 768MB
16GB DDDR3 1333MHZ RAM
WD BLUE SATA3 2TB
Epraizer Noble Gaming Casing
HEC Rapter II 500W

GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR TRANSACTION!!!
