Gaming PC for SC2 and DotA2 Tags: New Build PHP Systems Product Last response: December 28, 2011 1:29 PM in Systems Share Pwnx December 28, 2011 5:49:34 AM Approximate Purchase Date: Don't care. Still saving. Probably next year. Budget Range: 20000 to 30000 PHP which is around $450 to $700 using the current rates. System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Surfing Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, etc. Just building the CPU. Preferred Website(s) for Parts: pcx.com.ph (Local shop) Country: Philippines Parts Preferences: Huh? Overclocking: Nah. Don't think I need to. Don't even think I can. SLI or Crossfire: Don't know what this is. Monitor Resolution: Currently, 1280x960, planning to increase it after the complete build. Additional Comments: The cheaper the better, but efficiency first. I want to run SC2 and DotA 2 on at least High graphics at 45fps up. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- I actually came up with a build with the help of the locals in a forum, but I have no idea if it'll work since I've never built a PC before.
