Gaming PC for SC2 and DotA2

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: (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.

[PHP 2500] Motherboard: ASrock h61
[PHP 5000] Procie: i3-2100
[PHP 1800] RAM: G.Skill 2x2GB DDR3 1333 Mhz RipJaws
[PHP 9500] GPU: Sapphire Radeon 6870
[PHP 3700] HDD: 320 GB Seagate 7200RPM
[PHP 3000] PSU: Silverstone Essentials 500watt
[PHP 1500] Casing: Any Generic Case

I was told I don't need a cooling device since I can't overclock my i3.

Comments will really be appreciated.
