Yes, for browsing, watching videos but mostly for games only (online games) like Heroes of New Earth, Cabal and Dota. Budget is around $500 that would be 22k for Philippine Peso.

Since Newegg nor TigerDirect ship to the Philippines, we cannot list specific hardware as certain boards or models may not be available in your area. If you are looking for a mid-range PC, a motherboard using the entry-level AMD 870 chipset would be nice. Suggested manufacturers include MSI, Gigabyte, and Asus. With the CPU, that is more of a budget issue. You will probably want an Athlon II X2 or Phenom II X2 with a speed over 2.8GHz using the AM3 socket. RAM is pretty simple, just get a 2x2GB or a 1x4GB stick of DDR3-1333 RAM. AMD motherboards seem to work best with RAM that has a voltage of around 1.5V. Don't forget, you need a 64-bit version of Windows to use 4GB or more of RAM. As for the graphics card, if all you are doing is simple online games, a Radeon 5770 is a great basic card, if you want something a little better, the Radeon 6850. Both of these cards have power requirements, you must have a power supply capable of 500W or better.

Thank you for that, DJBPace07 . I have visited newegg and the price are more cheaper in here. I am planning about core 2 quad or AMD phenom II X4. which is better AMD or Intel? Actually I can build an i5 series or phenom II x6 with $500 in here but if a core 2 quad or AMD phenom II X4 can play those games just fine then I have to go with that so that I can save some money for graphic cards.

You can upgrade your system to a Core 2 Duo and to 2GB of ram which will improve the performance when you play online games.

Okay, thank you so much killerx525. I will just upgrade my system instead of purchasing a new computer for now. I will save more money for a better computer in in the future. By the way what video card do you recommend?

I believe this is your motherboard. If it is, these are the CPU's your motherboard supports. Remember, you may need to update your BIOS to use new CPU's. It would be far cheaper to update the CPU, graphics card, and power supply than to build a new PC.

Here is the BIOS you need to update to get the best compatible processor.
