My target mobo if i choose Intel:

Mobo: http://pcx.com.ph/asus-p8h61-m-le.html
Price: 2,600php (philippine currency) equivalent of $61 (in USD)

My target Mobo if i choose AMD FX/Athlon series:

Mobo: http://pcx.com.ph/asus-m5a78l-m-lx-760g-vsl-ddr3-1656.h...
Price: 2,250php equivalent of $53 (in USD)


Memory:
Price: 1,050php equivalent $25 USD
http://pcx.com.ph/components/memory/corsair-xms3-4gb-xm...

Optical Drive:
Price: 900php equivalent $21
Asus 24x24 B3ST


HDD:
400gb 3.5 Seagate SATA

Power Supply:
CoolMaster EXtreme 500w
Price: 1,950PHP equivalent of $46 USD

GPU:
need help about here guys i need a cheap GPU that can handle the latest and upcoming games like GTA5 medium to high settings. Looking forward to Gt550ti



If you have a $400-500 what build will can you make, please let me know what build you can do in spending $400-500 that can play latest and upcoming games. High settings or better then 1366x768 resolution.


I heard about overclocking but its not an option for me maybe someday i'l try..( My reason, dont have a budget to buy cooler)
I need guide to all the pro gamers out there. :) 
Anyway my budget is around 400$ - 450$

I hope you understand me guys, sorry about my English. :(

First of all delete that part about the OS before the forum moral police arrive.

Secondly the i3 +H61 board option sounds good. However even at the lowish resolution you can't expect a combination of i3 and 550 Ti to play upcoming games at high or better. You really need a better GPU at least.

The PSU is pretty bad I recommend you look at another unit.

I made this, if your going between 400 to 500 bucks then go with AMD, which I chose the Phenom ii x4 965 black because it is a quad core and oveclockable. MSI mobo that is SLi/crossfire ready which later on will help out. 8GB os RAM at 1333 which isn't the best but at 500 bucks that really what you have to do with a 500GB HDD. Then the GPU was a 2GB vram 2GB DDR5 which was the largest at 200. this is the only thing that sent the build to 526 but i figured that you could spare 26 bucks. And NO OS because I suggest linux so that you don't spend 100 on the OS because then your hardware takes a big hit. Hope it helps
