First of all, Hi! :) 

I'm planning to buy a new computer good for gaming this X-mas. So I set it up here: (I'm in Philippines, actually)

Approximate Purchase Date: December

Budget Range: $750 = 37,500 Pesos

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies

Are you buying a monitor: No



Parts to Upgrade: PSU, CPU, GPU, RAM,MOBO,Case

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: http://www.pcgilmore.com.ph

Location: City, State/Region, Country: Philippines

Parts Preferences: Intel CPU

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1366x768



And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I can't handle pc games. Stuttering issues.


And here's my setup:
====
*Intel Core-i5 3570 3.4Ghz
*Kingston Hyper-X 8GB RAM
*Western Digital 500GB SATA 3.0 Blue
*Asus ENGTX560 Ti DC 1GB DDR5 256bit
*Asus P8H77M-LE
*Fortress Venus ATX 700W PSU (Casing)
*Aerocool StrikeX 600W Modular 80+ Bronze

==
Am I gonna encounter bottleneck issues with this setup?
And, am i be able to play 2012-2013 games at 1080p reso.?

Get Corsair Vengeance or Gskill Ares instead of the Kingston ram. I would get a 7850 instead ofthe 560ti. I have never heard of the PSU so I would say stick to corsair, seasonic, silverstone, ocz, and antec. 550W or more is fine for this setup. Do you have a case? All of your stuff will work, but a lot of kingston ram is 1.65V which isn't good for ivy bridge. The 7850 is quite a bit more powerful than the 560ti and the psu may be fine but you don't want it to die on you.

You're good to go. Shouldn't have any problems with gaming on that resolution for some time to come

they're out of corsair, seasonic, silverstone, ocz, and antec, only aerocool and a bunch of unpopular PSUs. :fou:  . yep, 20 bucks for a case :lol:  hd7850 here is out of my price range. And the worst part is, their corsair and gskill is out of stock too :fou:  :fou:  .they only got patriot 4gb. should i take the 2 patriot 4GB?

Well you want 1.5V ram for sure. Everything else will work. Your country really gets screwed on hardware.

The physical size of the Monitor does not matter, that is up to you. But the second number on the specs of the monitor resolution (1920 X 1080) must be at least 1080 or higher.

According to what you listed your current monitors resolution..(1366x768) your monitor will support 720p but not full HD of 1080P.
