Up to now I've been searching for the computer parts that you have suggested but it seems that some of those are not available here in the Philippines. It's kinda bit harder for me because of limited sources on where I could look for the right materials. But I think, I really need to increase my budget to build a decent computer. My budget would not be higher than P33,000.00. Is this enough? Exchange rate is Php47 to 1USD.
I have made my setup instead. I'm not sure if this will be compatible. If not, maybe you can also suggest better:
CPU Athlon II X2 240 (2.8G) 2mb 3,350.00
MOBO Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H VSL 4,970.00
RAM Kingston 2GB 667/800 ddr2 2,540.00
HDD Western Digital 320GB 7200rpm SATA 2,200.00
ODD Samsung 22x SH-S223F/B Sata 1,270.00
ATX CASE COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black 3,240.00
Power Supply Enermax 500w ELT500AWT 4,430.00
OS Windows 7 Home Premium full product 9,180.00 ?
It will be used same with the purpose that I have posted previously: Mainly for browsing, playing music and video, and playing SF for my brother.
I have seen this from this website using SRP Pricelist:
Maybe, I still need to look for other stores here in the Philippines.
I've been reading from other forums, and they are recommending the emax-785g-fxn for motherboard. I think, this is available only here in the Philippines.
I don't have idea about the GPU. Do I really need to buy one now? Can I just add it later, since I only have a low budget for my PC. Also with the OS, I don't have idea of what OS is right for me.
Please, need your advice.
