Hello Everyone,

I'm planning to build a budget gaming PC and I need some help with the hardware (I can't find any about the motherboard) that I'm going to use.
I live in the Philippines and here's the website where I looked up for the parts.

http://dynaquestpc.com/

Our budget for the PC (It's a family pc) is about 20,000 Pesos (With monitor, keyboard and mouse included) which is about 490 USD.

We plan on playing WoW, Dragon Nest, Dota 2, COD Modern Warfare and the usual net surfing and video streaming.

I'm open to all opinions and suggestions. (But as much as possible, NO fanboyisms please)

Well, here's the the build

Processor:AMD Trinity A6-5400K
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-F2A75M-D3H
RAM:G.SKILL 4GB DDR3 1333 F3-10600CL9S-4GBNT
HDD:Seagate Barracuda 500GB Sata 6Gb/s
ODD:LiteOn iHAS124 24x Multi Format DVDWriter
Casing:Antec ONE Mid-Tower Case
Monitor:LG E1642C 15.6" Led Monitor
Keyboard and Mouse:Logitech MK120 Corded Desktop Combo
PSU:Seasonic 520W S12II-520 80PLUS Bronze
Speakers: Creative SBS A60 2.0 Speaker System

Thank you everyone for the help and God bless! :hello:

You are spending a lot on case and PSU, I would make room in your budget for an A10 if you are going integrated and 2 sticks of 1600 MHz RAM. The performance increase is very large and you need all the memory bandwidth you can get.

No I'd keep the case and PSU - you don't want to skimp in this area as these will last a while.

Try this build:

Case: NZXT Source 220 - ₱2,270.00
PSU: Seasonic S12 II 520W - ₱2,700.00
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-F285AX-D3H - ₱4,150.00
CPU: 3.80 GHz AMD A10-5800K - ₱5,580.00
RAM: 8GB G.Skill Ares (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600MHz 1.5V - ₱2,180.00
HD: 500GB Seagate Barracuda ST 7200 RPM - ₱2,530.00
Optical: HP DVD Burner - ₱850.00

Total: ₱20,260.00 (USD $495.57)
