OK so this is my first time to build a new system given a budget of around Php 65,000.00 (I'm from the Philippines), it's around $ 1500 for you my friends. Dollar to Philippine peso exchange rate is kinda $1 = Php 43.
So my first budget would be around Php 38,000.00 ($883) because that will be my first expected salary next month. The specs are:
I'm assuming this computer is mainly for games. In which case I suggest you only get an i5. The i7 has the same number of physical cores however it has hyperthreading hence 4 extra virtual cores that the i5 doesn't have.
the motherboard's memory is Up to dual channel DDR3-1600. Dual Channel only. So I was thinking, my motherboard, MSI Z77A GD65, has these details.
• Support four DDR3 DIMMs 1066/1333/1600/1866*/2000*/2133*/2200*/2400*/2600*/2667*/2800*(OC) DRAM (32GB Max)
- Supports Dual-Channel mode
* To support DDR3 2200*/2400*/2600*/2667*/2800*(OC) ,you must install an Intel 22nm CPU
So I can't use the Corsair Vengeance (Quad) 4x4gb CL9 (CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9) ???
Quad and Dual enclosed in the parentheses are indications of the channel. I just copied the description from my local computer store in their price list.
Instead, buy 2 packages of Corsair Vengeance (Dual) 2 X 4 GB CL9? Am I right?
