More about final build thread time
  1. Personally I wouldn't recommend ECS mobo's, they are the worst of the worst.
    I recommend Asrock H61 as a quality budget board.

    I would also recommend getting i3-2120 over 2100, it's usually only a few dollars more. If it's more than $10 more, don't bother the 2100 is capable.

    Also that psu is horrible. See if you can find Antec Earthwatts 430w or CorsairCX400.

    You don't need a case, but I mean really? You can find a cheap case for around $25.

    Yes I know you live in the Phillipines, I'm just giving you an example.
  2. what happens when if you have a bad mobo? pc failure?

    ..... and oh just 430W is it enough? i read about the min requirements of the HD 7850 needs a 500W or greater.
  3. Actually a 380w is fine, I was just giving you some headroom for a future cpu upgrade.

    I'm running a 380w and my video card uses about 50w more than the 7850.

    A bad mobo is a bad mobo, it's like having a bad engine on your car.
