Default help me on buying - 05-15-2014, 14:14 | posts: 18

- Budget:
240$ for processor
80-120$ for mother board
50-65$ for casing
- Zip Code or Location:
Manila, Philippines
- Specific Use: Gaming/Normal/Photoshop/Microsoft Offices/Animation and Game Development
- Any preferred components?:
i was thinking of i5-4670k but i really don't know what to pick
- Any spare parts you can re-use?
GTX650 2GB GDDR5
500w Strike X non-modular
2x4GB 1333 Ripjaws
2x4GB 1333 Kingston (small)
And got extra 4GB 1333 Kingston (tall)
512GB Seagate HDD
*Generic Case (Asrock Extreme 6 Fits but its too tight, can't put some parts)
- Overclocking your processor?: Maybe Yes? Well in my view in the future there will be more powerful procs so probably i'll overclock to compensate for it
- Need an Operating System?:
I'm currently using 7 Ultimate but i think I'll change to 8.1
- Need a Monitor? / Mouse? / Keyboard?:
Currently using Roccat Kone +
Razer Anansi - and extra Nighthawk KAI-5
And AOC monitor -18.5in i think, prolly change to 2pcs 23 inches
- Need Another Component? (Specify):
Only the Motherboard, Processor and the Casing
- Preferred Case Features (Ex: Color, Side Window, Flashy:
I recommend Black, Windowed is fine
Its kinda dusty here so i want like the top bottom and front have dust filters
Well still depends on the budget but as long as the atx board fits, with atleast fan slots on front bottom and top i'm fine with it and as long as the airflow would be good (it's damn hot in my place )
- Number of Monitors: 1 (18.5") AOC
- Other Info?:
I broke my motherboard (beoken pins) and also my processor ( got a dent on it like the gold plate was removed - tested it on other board, doesn't work anymore )
My brother enrolled on a course of information technology major in animation and game development so i was thinking he'll be also using this PC
I'm not sure if he needs a powerful one but i'm paying GW2
My i3-2100 works fine but of course i get lags on WvW

Thank you in advance!

so much in one post lol.
Since you live in Philippines, we need to know whats available in your market.
if some UK / US / AU guy started suggesting you brands and items, you may get depressed because they may not be available in your country.
Since you have a medium end budget, I would suggest considering AMD products.
If purchasing AMD processor / motherboard combo, you can get an excellent motherboard for around 130-150$ and fx 8xxx processor for about 200-250$.
now again it depends on what's available in your local market.
