Your customization choice is quite good already but your chosen model of video cards is outdated that series was 2 years old tech and may I suggest that the existing series of Inno3d for their mid-range level was GT640. Much better if you have some time to make an initial research about this particular model. Your motherboard chipset was IntelH61 it can load either Nvidia or ATI graphics card chipset.

If you want to have a better idea about building your PC desktop try to read this post first on how to build a PC Desktop.

May I add also if your along within the Q.C. area try to call one of PCX branch at SM North Edsa they will help you 709-5987. :)

Good luck bro. Di mo need ng lumampas dyan kasi napansin ko mababa resolution mo. Pagnaglaro ka ng games lahat siguradong High to Max.
