PHP 20,000 Gaming PC Build Guide March 2016

Time for another gaming PC build guide for 2016 this time. The Intel Skylake processors have been around for quite some time now since their day of release in Q3 of 2015 and our budget build for the first quarter of 2016 will be based on the cheapest Skylake processor that you can get.

Related: Php15,000 Budget Gaming PC Build Guide December 2018 (Athlon 200GE)

A new, updated guide can be found here:

So to make things simple as is, there are about 6 different Skylake processors that you can find here in the Philippines and our gaming PC build is based on the cheapest one, the Intel Skylake Pentium G4400.

BossMac’s Notes: Many have asked for this build since last holiday season and we really didn’t provide one given that Skylake board and processor prices aren’t meeting our target price range. So for this particular build, we’re shifting our usual build prices from 15k and 25k to Php20,000 for this Skylake Gaming PC build. As always, this is a basic cookie cutter approach to building your own PC but again you need to be aware of the capabilities of this setup meaning that this is intended for higher entry-level hence the GPU choice. Also, prices are estimated from the average store prices we can source as of this writing (e.g. Lazada, DQ, PCX, PCHUB.)

And our Choice of Components are…

Total: ₱21,440*

Well yeah, as you can see we exceeded our target budget but you have to weigh the benefit of that additional cost. We just can’t sacrifice to grab a 500 GB hardrive if you can get a 1 TB for a few hundreds difference. Also, we could’t find an 8 GB Crucial RAM that offers a cheaper price that what we listed.

So overall…

Either you can get this build for a higher price than we listed or lower depending on where you bought the it. We won’t consider an operating system within the price since Windows 10 is currently free until this June of 2016. Otherwise, you can save more if you already have a harddrive with your OS on it.

If this is your first time building a gaming PC (or just a PC basically) you can check out our PHP13,000 build guide with step-by-step PC assembly instructions. Also, as mentioned earlier we really couldn’t beat our Php15,000 target goal but you can still opt to check out the following:

Php15,000 Gaming PC Haswell Build Guide

Php25,000 Gaming PC Build Guide

We feel these builds are still relevant for today’s needs.

If you want a rought idea how this setup performs, check out this youtube video of witcher 3 that runs on G3258 and GTX 950. The performance of this build should be similar or better.

We’re still testing the performance of this build and will release a performance guide highlighting the capability of this build in our own test environment. If you have suggestions, recommendations and requests kindly leave them in the comments.

    1. Actually if you look sa trend ng mobos this generation, despite na inalis na ung internal voltage regulator hindi na bumalik ung mga 22+ phases na VRM designs, mainly due to the fact na hindi mo masyado need for 14nm procs. same goes sa mga lower end chipsets and procs na mas mababa ung utilization>

      Siguro if may prob sa VRM cooling, sa choice of components na ni manufacturer yun. pero in general, 4-6 phases can run fine without a heatsink under standard (non OC) conditions

    1. Same question sir mac, nagugulahan ako kasi sa specs ng mobo na to supported is ddr3L.. Pwede pala yan? Pa explain po.. Thaks

    1. Baka gawin namin yan sa Php25,000 build guide bro kasi aabot na sya dun. Once ma-guarantee na average price ng skylake i3 is pasok pa rin sa ganung range definitely maganda yan.

  1. Bossmac, mas maganda po ba ito kaysa sa AMD build na ito?
    CPU: AMD A6-6400K 3.9GHz Dual-Core Processor ₱2350
    GPU: Zotac GeForce GTX 950 2GB Video Card ₱7530
    Motherboard: ASRock FM2A88X Extreme4+ ATX FM2+ ₱4700
    RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (1 x 8GB) ₱2050
    HDD: WD Blue 1TB 7200RPM ₱2050
    PSU: Cooler Master Thunder 500w 80+ ₱2450
    Case: Tecware Raiden Elite ₱1400
    Total: ₱22800
    Kung maganda na po ito, tanong ko lang po kung ma o-overclock ko po ung CPU with stock cooler. Salamat po!

        1. Z170 need mo bro if gusto mo mag-overclock. Since enabled na sa Z170 ung BCLK OC, pwede mo OC higher than the average 130Mhz BCLK OC sa previous gen(highest I got is 380Mhz bclk on Maximus VIII Extreme, 185Mhz sa GB Z170X-SOC Force, etc.)

          Mejo investment nga lang yun since mas mahal ang Z170 pero ang maganda jan pwede ka straight upgrade to K-unlocked processor and enjoy the full potential ng board mo.

          Actually worth noting is possible din mag-overclock sa H170 pero need mo alamin ano ung mga boards na may BIOS version na unlocked sya.

          1. Eto po final specs para po sa build na gagawin ko
            CPU: Intel Pentium G4400 3.3Ghz ₱2950
            GPU: Palit Geforce GTX 960 OC 2GB ₱7900
            Motherboard: ECS H110M-C3D ₱2450
            RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V 8GB Dual DDR4-2400 ₱2500
            HDD: WD Blue 1TB ₱2450
            PSU: Seasonic S12II 520W 80+ Bronze ₱2600
            Case: Tecware Raiden Elite ₱1500
            Total = ₱23240
            Sana po okay na po, usual games na nilalaro ko po ay mga FPS katulad nang CS:GO.

          2. Hindi po pala compatible ung RAM ko,
            New RAM: G.Skill Aegis 8GB DDR3-1600 ₱2190
            Total price would be ₱22930

            1. Ok lang naman bro kahit 2400 ung gamitin mo na memory pero yun nga lang di mo masusulit and kung mag-upgrade ka naman DDR4 bagsak mo possibly so yeah ok na babaan mo muna. minimal naman ung impact sa performance. Supported ko yang build na yan, buti napagkasya mo yang GTX 960 sa build na yan. San galing prices mo bro? Lakas ng GTX 960 jan, ano monitor mo now pala?

              1. Ok lang po ba na palitan ko ung motherboard ko nang MSI H110m PRO-VD, ung RAM G.Skill Ripjaws V 8gb DDR4-2400, tapos ung GPU ay Palit Geforce GTX 960 Jetstream 2gb? Lahat po nang prices galing DynaquestPC

              2. CPU: INTEL I3-6100-5,450.00
                GPU: Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 3GB -10,000.00
                Motherboard:Gigabyte GA-H110M-DS2 – 3,350.00
                RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY 4GB Single DDR4 2133MHz CL14 HX421C14FB(4GBX2)-2,260.00
                HDD: WD Blue 1TB 7200RPM -2,290.00
                PSU: Corsair VS450 Power Supply -1,650.00
                Case: Tecware F3 Blue-1,180.00


                ok lang po ba eto?

    1. Dedicated GPU>APU when gaming. Ditch AMD and go with this build if you want pure gaming only. Kung nag mumultitask ka at may ibang office work running sa background then go with A8 or A10.

  2. Galing po Dynaquest yung prices except sa case, galing PCExpress ung case. Wala pa po akong monitor since nag iisip pa ako kung ano gagamitin ko.

  3. Here is what im planning to build:

    x Tecware Infinity USB3.0 Mid Tower Gaming Case ₱1,240.00
    × Intel i5 Skylake Intel Core i5-6400 2.70-3.30GHz Skylake ₱8,690.00
    × MSI H110M PRO-VD MSI H110M PRO-VD ₱3,530.00
    × Zotac GTX 960 AMP! 4GB Zotac GTX 960 AMP! Edition 4GB 128Bit DDR5 (ZT-90309-10M) ₱10,790.00
    × GSkill Ripjaws V GSkill Ripjaws V 8GB Dual DDR4 2400 (F4-2400C15D-8GVR) ₱2,500.00
    × Toshiba500gb_zps7d72497e Toshiba 1TB 7200rpm Sata3 DT01ACA100 ₱2,090.00
    × Seasonic S12II-520w 80PLUS Bronze Seasonic S12II 520W 80PLUS Bronze ₱2,600.00
    × AOC M2060Swd AOC M2060Swd 19.53″ M2060Swd WLED Vga Dvi ₱3,799.00
    × EW-7811Un Edimax EW-7811Un 150mbps Wireless USB Adapter ₱550.00


    what do you think?

    1. This is pretty solid actually, and yeah even with an i3 it still rocks. Could do better with a larger monitor though for that sweet 1080p experience and saving up for a Z170 board would also be nice but those can be reserved for an upgrade path.

      1. CPU: INTEL I3-6100-5,450.00
        GPU: Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 3GB -10,000.00
        Motherboard:Gigabyte GA-H110M-DS2 – 3,350.00
        RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY 4GB Single DDR4 2133MHz CL14 HX421C14FB(4GBX2)-2,260.00
        HDD: WD Blue 1TB 7200RPM -2,290.00
        PSU: Corsair VS450 Power Supply -1,650.00
        Case: Tecware F3 Blue-1,180.00


        what do you think of this boss?

    2. If papalitan yung chassis ng nzxt guardian rb. Ok parin ba sa set up nato? No need na palitan psu..? Im thingking of going with this set up.. newbie here need some advice ty..

    1. yes on gaming, ive watched some videos using older i3 generation paired with a gtx 960.. runs games at medium to high at around 30 to 50fps with some options turn off

      1. but for basic cad designing, okay na ba siya?? and how come mas okay pa din yung dual core na skylake sa ibang quad core?? sorry noob question. 😀

        1. Efficiency kasi yan bro. Mas malakas clock-for-clock ang 3.2ghz na Intel Skylake processor na dual core versus dual-core 3.2ghz from previous gen Intel or current-gen AMD. Basically it does more per second with only 2 cores versus quads of past gen or AMD. Hindi naman ganun kalaki yung margin, pero on a general usage scenario mas practical na dun ka sa mas efficient processor.

    2. 1080p med-high kung GTX 960 ka. If you’re doing CAD work I suggest opting for like 16GB memory, depends sa type ng CAD na ginagawa mo. If 2D drawings lang, patok toh pero pag large-scale perspective 3D models ginagawa mo definitely get a more powerful CPU and more RAM. For games, this is just fine.

      1. Clear na explanation boss. 😀 Thanks. For now, basic and small 2d,3d designing pa lang naman sa i guess kaya na ng build na to. Yung past rig ko na Core 2 Duo na tumagal ng 8 years :D, kaya niya ioperate yung CAD smoothly naman so i guess ito din. 🙂 Thanks ulit sa quick reply. I’ll build this ngayong April.

    1. Oh you meant the game in the vid. Well they locked at 30FPS, that’s a setting in Witcher but any other game that’s not AAA or a texture hog you’ll be getting more performance definitely.

  4. hey bro i am planning for a major gaming pc upgrade ito current specs ng pc ko
    AMD A8 6600k O.C to 4.5GHZ
    8gb ddr3
    GTX750 1gb OC ed
    asus mobo

    plano ko is
    I3 4170(para compatible sa ddr3 ko na ram which is hyperX)
    GTX960 4gb

    ok lang ba pero di ko afford yung dalawa agad bibilin ano mas better na unahin iupgrade?
    games na nilalaro ko is FPS like battlefied 4(multiplayer) LoL and lahat ng FPS tsaka GTA V (planning to buy palang)

    1. Pag nagpalit ka ng proc now bro magpapalit ka rin ng motherboard… best advise ko is go for GTX 960 muna + upgrade to 8GB RAM. After which tsaka mo habulin ung i3-4170 + motherboard. Mejo kakarag pa yung 960 sa APU pero at least may nasimulan ka ng upgrade na pwede mo carry over. Pero best approach is all-in para lasap mo kagad ung boost in performance.

  5. Skylake processors supports DDR3L – 1333 / 1600 at 1.35V and DDR4 – 1866 / 2133MHz at 1.25v; any other memory might damage or decrease processor performance.

    1. While that’s a concern, all motherboards designed for Skylake particularly Z170 boards operate upwards of DDR4-2800 running at 1.35v. Our test platform uses DDR4-3200 with DDR3-2800 (1.65v) as sub for DDR3 compatible boards. One thing to note, dual-type boards like the Biostar H170Z3 and such can only support one type of memory at a time (either DDR4 only DDR3 only)

      The particular motherboard in this guide can only support DDR3-1600, the memory chosen runs at said speeds so its pretty much specced for it.

  6. Bossmac penge po list yung pasok sa req. Ng the division yung pedeng med to high settings my budget is P20k to P25k. Thanks

  7. Good evening back2gaming, bossmac, sirs.

    wala ako masyado alam sa pc so pa tulong sana ko magbuild. meron ako gigabyte geforce gtx960 oc edition 2gb gddr5 128bit. budget ko kaya ng 25-30k excluded na yang gpu. ung kaya sana mag smooth and max settings ng dota2, csgo and okay for photo editing (adobe photoshop/lightroom). anong parts need ko?

    salamat sa tulong and advice!

    HDD: 1TB WD

    1. Yung case bro ikaw na magdedecide jan since maluwag budget mo. For your other components, depende pa rin sa game mo yan and since mostly esports titles ka and simple photo editing, recommended ko sayo either core i5 or core i3 build.

      Core i5 6600
      H170 mobo
      16GB DDR4
      500-600w PSU

      Explore naten options mo bro need ko lang malaman ano priority mo jan, ung game ba or ung photo editing and what kind of photos ineedit mo? Like ilang MPs. 😀

      1. tingin ko sa i5 ako kung kaya naman. okay ba tong Cooler Master CMP 102 Casing with 500W PSU? para sa case and psu?

        may specific brands kang marecommend sir, ung okay durability and performance.
        H170 mobo
        16GB DDR4
        500-600w PSU

        priority ko is gaming. sa photos portraits(wedding/models) 12MPs lang gamit ko na cam, file size niya is jpeg 3-7mb, raw 12-21mb. Light user lang naman ako ng photo editing. mostly lightroom talaga. nageexplore lang sa photo editing. 🙂

        1. Ah sa case, kung ganyang build idedepende ko sa cooling mo bro. Suggest ko kasi maginvest ka rin sa aftermarket cooling like AIO liquid.

          Ok base sa usage mo hindi mo masyado need ung high-end power so pwede naten maximize ung budget mo. Ok eto suggest ko base dun sa list mo:

          Intel Core i5-6500 3.2GHz Quad-Core PHP 9,480.00

          Mobo: lga 1151 H170 mobo
          Asus H170 Pro Gaming PHP 7,950

          RAM: 16GB DDR4
          GSkill Ripjaws V 16GB Dual DDR4 2400 CL15 PHP 3,750.00

          PSU: 500-600w PSU
          Seasonic M12II-620 EVO 620W 80Plus Bronze Fully Modular PHP 3,650.00

          Tecware Alpha USB3.0 Mid Tower Gaming Case PHP 2,250.00

          HDD: 1TB
          Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5″ 7200RPM PHP 2,450.00

          Current total: Php29530

          Maliit lang benefit sa extra 1k para dun sa 6600 so ignore mo na yun. Pinili ko tong H170 ng ASUS dahil maganda feature set nila right now and natest ko na ung Z170 PRO GAMING, sulit naman ung extra features lalo na sa software kung maeexplore mo. Pondohan mo yung PSU bro, yan ang buhay ng PC mo, importante na quality yan. Recommended ko yang Seasonic since super stable naman sya from experience. Nilagay na kita sa 620w if ever maisipan mo magupgrade pero kahit 500w lang pasok ka pa rin.

          If ever gusto mo mag-change options, pwede ka magpalit ng board and mag-settle muna sa 8GB memory and 500w na seasonic PSU. Everything else, best recommendation ko na.

          Recommend ko try mo mag-set ng budget for cooler, kahit mga Coolermastter Hyper212EVO or anything similar na around 1300-1500 ang price range. Para lang alaga CPU mo. 😀

  8. pag eto mga naging options okay ung compatability nila? or baka may ma advice ka na better option for same price range or cheaper. (from dynaquest)

    okay lang ba ung mga lga 1151 H170 mobo na hindi ‘gaming’ gamitin?
    16gb talaga or kaya ng 8gb ram?
    okay ba ung case na may psu, tatagal kaya ung psu na kasama? o mag separate case and psu na lang ako.

    thanks sir! 🙂

  9. boss mac! newbie lang po ako dito, anu po ba maganda na masusuggest nyo na specs for office and gaming pc? 30k po budget. basta kaya nya dota2, nba2k16, Autocad, Thanks!

    1. Eto mismo bro, yung nasa list na toh. Saktong sakto sa budget mo if kasama monitor. If may monitor ka na, upgrade mo na to Core i3 + GTX 960 ung proc and GPU and you have yourself a gaming machine 😀

  10. Sir mac may skylake guide na pala..hindi na haswell buuhin ko

    Mobo-Asus z170 sabertooth mark 1

    Wala pa kong idea sa cooler

    Need ko ng help boss kung may compatibility issues ba sa build ko..
    Hoping to run it for atleast 3 yrs..

    Planning to build this May.
    Dynaquest for all the parts.

    Will share photos.when finished

    1. Update
      Chassis. Nzxt tempest 410 elite
      Kelangan ko ba dagdagan psu ko bossmac kung kumpleto lahat ng fans? And running

    2. Good parts bro, walang conflict. Sa cooler suggest ko NZXT Kraken X31 if small cooler lang hanap mo pero for high-performance cooling suggest ko 240 rad like Corsair h100i. Ok nanaman PSU for everything, aralin mo lang airflow depende sa cooler na gamitin mo.×679.jpg

      Overall, ansolid nyan bro pero hold mo muna budget mo until May kasi baka announce na new GPUs ni NVIDIA April and may ilabas na new stuff sa Computex this end of May-early June. 😀

      1. Thanks bossmac.. sige i hold ko muna.. 1st week of may pa nman uwi ko. mag uupdate lang ako palagi. You have a great site na inspire ako na bumuo ng sarili ko. Very nice

  11. Bossmac.. good day.. need your expert advice on this

    Cpu: intel core i3 6100 3.70ghz skylake
    Mobo: msi h110m pro vd
    Gpu: zotac gtx960 amp 4gb ddr5
    Ram: gskill ripjaw v 8gb dual ddr4 2400
    Hdd: toshiba 1tb 7200rpm sata3
    Psu: seasonic s12ii 520w 80plus bronze
    Chassis: nzxt guardian 921 rb black steel

    Could you recommend some cheaper parts or this will do? How about compatibilty issues? This set up is from Tomas in this same thread. Do i need to upsize my psu? Coz i am planning to add 1 more fan aside from 3 stock fan from the chassis.. ill build my rig when i get back to ph later this april or may. tnx

    1. kung mag 1080p ka lang sir or isang monitor lang mag 2gb version ka nalang ng gtx 960 mas makakatipid ka di naman ganon nakakatulong vram kung single monitor at m12ii-520 na siguro para sa cable management, tingin ko lang po.

      1. True, walang benefit 4GB VRAM on 1080p since magcho-choke pa rin GTX960 on larger textures. Still, as long as makuha mo ng within reasonable price better to go with it na rin. For the PSU, no comment. nawawala ko lagi modular cables ko hahahaha

    2. Parts are good enough and if you’re just gaming on 1080p its plenty for most games. I’d check the case first if that’s for you and fits your need, no need to really load up on fans if you’re using a solid cooler.

      1. Thank you sa mga nag reply.. medyo nagulohan aq s kababasa ko ng mga reviews.. bout z170 mobo.. msi z170 pc mate vs msi z170 m3.. mgnda ata future ng build pag nka z170?

        Need to reconsider everything.. money counts for everything lalo na sa needed tlga na parts. Ang usual games ko lng kc dota2 , blade and soul and gusto ko din laroin yung metal gear v, the witcher 3, the devision.. at iba pang mmorpg.. gus2 ko sila malaro in higher resu..

        1. no need to go z170 unless need mo ung maximum offer ng z170 chipset which is overclocking support, more SATA/USB3/m2 ports, etc. If hindi mo need overclocking or more than 3 PCIe slots then h170/b150 or even h110 is good enough. I suggest going basic if 1st build in a while para makapa mo lang need mo sa PC gaming, there’s really no surefire board to cover everything unless you yourself are aware na sa mga specific needs mo.

          In this case if its purely for gaming, go h110 for budget reasons or h170 for a median compromise.

          Get the 4GB, I recommend ZOTAC.

  12. Noob here. Let’s say I also wanted to do some light-ish video editing work but still stay on the cheap side, ok na ba kung gawin ko is this build but with an i3-6100 and maybe double the ram?

    1. Hmmmm yeah an i3 would do better but it won’t be as fast as in i7 or Xeon in terms of rendering but faster than a Pentium. If your concern is render times, definitely get an i3 or better. But a lot of RAM is highly recommended if you have really long clips to work with or high-res ones.

  13. Want to consult this build need comment and suggestion. 1st time to build Thank you!

    1. Looks good but I need to know what application this build is for? Games or work? If games, what games do you normally play. 😀

      As it is, its one good build for 1080p, I still suggest flexing a bit to get a GTX 960 for the extra performance but don’t if it breaks 35k budget. 😀

  14. kung mag 1080p ka lang sir or isang monitor lang mag 2gb version ka nalang ng gtx 960 mas makakatipid ka di naman ganon nakakatulong vram kung single monitor at m12ii-520 na siguro para sa cable management, tingin ko lang po.

  15. Sir pwede ba to pang high games like assassins creed syndicate witcher 3 . O kaya pang future high games po ano recommend na set salamat sa pag sagot boss

  16. Sir pwede ganitong set? i7 3770 3.40 ghz tapos Msi h110m Pro VD —zotac gtx 960 – gskills ripjaws vg 8gb dual ddr4 2400 — WD Blue 1tb – seasonic s1211 newbie palang sa build salamat boss

      1. Boss wala akong board ngayon sir d pala compatible yan d ko alam ano ba maganda na board para jaan yong pede SLI meron din kasi ako lumang gpu gt 630 gusto ko sana dalawa magamit sakto lang po ba ?

    1. If makaka-holdout ka ng ganun katagal bro its definitely worth it for 2 reasons: eventual price drop ng Maxwell and/or better performance/efficiency ng Pascal. Next month announcement so baka as early as may makita na naten sya so baka sa june or july nasa pinas na yun

    1. Ok naman bro pero hindi ko talaga normally nirerecommend ang APU with GPU na pasok na sa lower-mainstream. That said, ok naman buong configuration pero suggest ko go for a Pentium processor and compatible motherboard, mas ok yun like Pentium G3260 + H81 motherboard.

  19. Ty bossmac . I made up my mind.. ill stick wd yur set up. ill just upgrade the proc to i3 and zotac 960.. will this do on my requirements for the games i mentioned…? Thanks a l0t..

  21. sayang ang skylake sir kung mag ddr3 ka lang, meron naman murang H110 board na ddr4, at halos same price na lang ngayon ang ddr3 at ddr4 kaya wala ng dahilan para hindi ka mag ddr4 ram na mas hamak na mas mabilis at latest

    dynaquest for parts, im building it this 1st-2nd week of May depende sa availability ng parts..
    ang question ko lang sir mac kung sapat ba yung psu ko na 550w?
    and dapat ko ba i hold muna yung budget ko sa GPU,gaya ng sabi mo kase baka mag announce na mga bagong GPU ng nvidia.. baka mas lower na price ng mga old models.

    pls help bossmac

    sorry for the long post.

    1. Mejo tight ung 550w sa vidcard pero overall its good anman. I suggest going 600w if kaya pa.

      Para sa GPU, don’t hold out. Announcement pa lang namana this month ung bago, hindi pa sya darating unless same day release. That said, mahal din kasi exchange rate ngayon kaya mahal GPUs dito saten so kahit magbaba presyo, kung mataas palitan mahal pa rin sya so I’m suggestion to forward with this build na.

    1. Intel Z77 yan bro… sobrang hirap na makakita nyan right now pero try looking muna bro. Usually all Z77 boards have support for SLI, pero hindi SLI card yang GT630 mo. So best scrap mo na yan. If need mo lang gamitin yan CPU, get a B75 or H77 na board if you can still find one pero kung makakita ka ng Z77 go for it na.

  23. Thanks. Sige babalik n lang ako sa seasonic g650 para sigurado..

    1. no probs pero go for a WD hard drive, if you’re gonna be using this build for a long time try a WD Black series. 5 years warranty is a good investment if you can afford it pa rin. Anyways, all good naman sa build so good to go na toh as it is.

      1. Hi po Boss Mac yung anak ko po mag assemble ng gaming pc ang mga laro niya league of legends nba 2k 16 paki help po ang suggestion sa specs. Salamat po

    1. Naku bro wala pa mejo tight kasi ang 15k for Skylake so in-up namen sa 20k ung max budget. Now ang good thing is kung pasok sa 15k talaga sayo mejo nagdrop prices ng 750ti ang bad news is nagmahal ng onti ung i3 4170 so mejo mixed ung positioning pagdating sa price right now. Pang-games lang ba yan target mo bro?

  25. eto specs ng old unit ko:

    games: dragon age inquisition at wircher 3. i want to play ultimate settings. need po help kung anung magandang graphics card na di kamahalan, na maachieve ito? salamat po;)

    1. Well with this build malakas na yung CPU mo for modern games, what you need is a better motherboard and graphics card. You’re stuck with older 7-series mobos and right now not sure kung may mga available pang ganyan pero if you can find an older B75, H77 or Z77 board, go for it. For graphics card, I need to know what PSU you’re using. If you want to go ultimate or max sa mga games, you need something powerful especially for witcher 3. Just to be a little on the safe side, a GTX 970 would be powerful enough to get you by in 1080p.

  26. Boss pinalitan ko po yung iba sa list kasi wala po talaga dito samen nyan paki check po kung okay lang ito
    cpu= g4400
    mobo = ecs h110m-c3d

    Yung gpu po yun na po yung pinaka magandang gpu dito samen 🙁

  27. Boss marc may tatanong ako kakassemble lng ng pc at mag dl na ko ng OS kaso ayaw basahin nakalagay sa screen Reboot And Select Proper Boot Device ano po ba gagawin ?

  28. Boss, upgradable po ba ito? nag hahanap po kasi ako pc na pwede pa i upgrade kapag may budget na.

    Ask lang po kung ok itong na build mostly pang dota2, lol, nba2k16, tree of savior and other HD games med to high settings at 720p.

  30. Well at least this is better than most so called budget build guides made by my fellow countrymen. Most guides fail just by recommending poor quality Tier 3/4 PSU’s like Corsair’s VS series and cheap aerocool psu’s to power up a mid-high end system.

    I don’t know about the GPU choice though. Zotac isn’t really that bad but if you’re planning on using the GPU for a long time, I’d rather get Gigabyte’s Xtreme edition or other brands except palit since Zotac/ Palit gpu’s aren’t really that durable and has higher Heat temps compared to other brands that uses better cooling like Asus’s Strix. Well all in all I guess its good, it’s really good on a tight budget and the 950 is a good entry level gpu regardless of its brand/ version anyways.

    1. I wouldn’t discount the capabilities of the Corsair VS but I don’t primarily recommend them just for the fact that we’re aiming for scalability and flexibility in our builds here. Basically they’re just not made tough enough to endure 50-80% loading for extended durations.

      Zotac’s stepping up and while they have admitted to us that they don’t really get dibs on the finer GPUs from NVIDIA (they don’t cherry pick chips), they’re PCB, component quality and cooler performance have significant advantage over that of Palit. The primary reason for recommended Palit here is of course cost and secondly value and Zotac offers extended warranty coverage for its GPUs. In the case of heating, GTX 950s don’t really pump heat as much as say a 970 or 980 Ti, so ambient temps shouldn’t be a problem UNLESS there’s no real airflow inside the chassis.

      If only Skylake builds don’t cost so much these days and the exchange rate not inflating prices, this build can go as low as 16k php really. Hopefully that changes mid-year since there’s no scheduled processor launch this year aside from another X99 proc.

  31. Need help po. My father and I are planning to buy a PC this August pag uwi nya, this is my plan build
    Bitfenix Ghost ₱ 4,590
    Intel Core i5-6600K ₱ 11,500
    Asus Z170-A ₱ 9,180
    Corsair RM750x 80+ Gold Full Modular Power Supply ₱ 6,120
    Zotac GTX 950 AMP! 2GB DDR5 128Bit ₱ 8,600
    GSkill Ripjaws V 16GB Dual DDR4 3200 ₱ 5,600
    Samsung 850 Evo 250 GB ₱ 4,540
    Seagate 3TB 7200RPM 64MB, ST300Dm001 ₱ 4,720
    LiteOn IHAS124 24x Multi Format DVD Writer ₱ 850
    Total price is ₱ 55,790.

    As you can see medyo pricey po. My father fathers budget is 40k and i’ll be going to add 10-15k. Prefer q sana kung nasa 50k price range po and preferably kasama n dun ung budget for the monitor and other peripherals. Suggest naman po sana pra mas ok ung build. I tried my best, base on my knowledge with this because I’m hoping that with future proof in mind, this build can last for 3-5 years. I’m very open sa opinion and ideas. Thanks a lot. =)

    1. Anong purpose netong build mo bro? Gaming or work PC din? Need mo gumawa ng cost considerations sa ibang parts pero overall good na toh pero wala pang monitor and periphs kasi. Tell me the primary function and games na nilalaro mo and I’ll swap out a few recommendations.

      1. Sorry for the late reply sir, planning this build mainly for gaming. more on RPG’s, The witcher, Fallout 4, Diablo 3, FFXIV, waiting for both Final Fantasy games to come out in the future.

        1. I also dowload lots of files like digital hd and blu ray movies and games from Steam, thus the need for a bigger drive. Heavy user din since i usually play 8-10 during my days off. Concern q din po ung heat and cooling of the system.

          1. You’re all set na if yan ang usage mo. I have a BitFenix Ghost in my other gaming rig, heavily used and wala ako cooling issues. You can go liquid cooling with a 240mm rad if you want, kaya nya. Very good case. Sa HDD, get WD Black if you’re mostly using it for large AAA games. Kasi from my experience sa laki ng mga games na yan ubos kagad SSD jan. That’s my best bet for that build

    2. Sa presyo ng Core i5 6600K 3.5 GHz + ASUS 170-A, mas mabuti pang ang bilhin mo ay Core i7 6700 3.4 GHz + MSI B150M Night Elf.

      Take note, bibili ka pa ng aftermarket CPU cooler para sa Core i5 6600K dahil walang kasamang stock cooler yan.

  32. Hi BossMac hinge sana ako recommendation and if there is incompatibility to this build. For gaming lang like dota2 and csgo.

    Chasis: Tecware infinity mid tower
    Proc: Intel i3-6100 Skylake

    And mag add pala ako ng case fan hindi po ba kakapusin psu ko?
    Thank you! Cheers!

      1. Okay po sir change to 1TB yung hdd ko. Hindi po ba kakapusin psu kahit mag add ako ng 2 case fan? Thank you!

      1. Thanks for the reply boss and more power site. Nainspire ako sa guides niyo magbuild nang first pc ko. Primary use is gaming and goal sana makalaro nang open world games like gta v and witcher 3 plus other recent games.

        Ano po marecommend niyo na budget pero future-proof build? Yung may room for upgrades para mamaximize ang budget.

        Current 2 builds in mind:

        Thermaltake 550w psu – 1895php
        Total at 20,295php

        *limited lang po choices ko kasi currently nasa Cebu po ako

        1. Geh the i3 build bro, 8k for sure gaming experience gives me more comfort than saving that 8k. If you want a bit of future-proofing, you could try holding on for a bit until June pag inannounce na new GPUs from NVIDIA (IF they do), that should help bring the prices down a bit. If need mo na bumili soon, suggest ko stick with the i3 build and eventually upgrade to GTX 970 or GTX 1070 sa future. You can try a Radeon R9 380X din if locally available, that should give you more performance in exchange for a bit more power draw.

          1. Maraming salamat sa advices boss. I will probably wait longer since hindi naman ako nagmamadali.

            Keep up the good work sa site boss.

            1. I was just visiting for a few days. I’m from a nearby province. 🙂 I bought my new monitor (Asus VC239) at NuTech at SM though.

              Have you built your rig already?

  33. With this rig, kaya ba neto run ang NBA 2K16/GTA V or any typical FPS games like COD MW3, BF Hardline?

    My Current Rig:
    FM2 A55 – MOBO
    AMD A4-5300B w/ RADEON HD7480D
    500GB SATA
    AOC 19′ 1600X900

    Balak ko sana sundin tong list nato..
    Di nako bibili ng HDD, MOnitor, case, so makakatipd ako…

      1. And also po, what if i replace the pentium g4400 with i3 6100 skylake and ZOTAC GTX950 with MSI GTX950, that okay?

  34. BossMac pwede na po ba tong build ko? Balak ko kasi magbuild ng pc. Wala pa akong 1080p monitor kaya stick muna ako sa 720p. Kaya ba moba mmorpg gaya ng wow/ff14 at rpg games tulad ng ac unity/fallout 4 na naka high settings na constant 60fps?

    Intel G4400
    Gigabyte GA-H110M-DS2
    Gigabyte GTX 950 Windforce OC 2GB
    Gskills Ripjaws X 8GB Single 1600
    Seasonic S12ll 520W 80Plus Bronze
    Western Digital Blue 1TB
    Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB
    Corsair Carbide 100R

    Nasa mga 27k po pricing ng build. May swap recommendations din po ba kayo?

    1. Sa 720p bro malakas na yan, baka magchoke sa AAA games though ung G4400 lalo na sa CPU intensive ones pero mukang fans ka ng mga RPGs so I think ok naman sya in general. Yung SSD kung makahanap ka mas latest bro much better, mejo luma na yang V300

      1. Salamat po sa reply. Ano po marecommend niyong replacement nung ssd? What about yung samsung 850 evo? Siguro po yun nalang kunin ko. Nasa 3.2k yung 120gb tapos 4.5k yung 250gb. Kunin ko nalang siguro yung 250gb tutal nasa 1k lang difference tapos madodoble yung storage. What about ung g4400 po? Ano po marecommend niyong replacement para di machoke yung unit?

        1. Yeah good option yang samsung 850, dun ka na sa 250. Mas sulit kasi. Sa G4400 naman, try mo i3 6100 lang bro. At the very least may advantage pa rin un sa overall performance.

  35. Hi, ask ko po sana if yung 21k price na specs is good for gaming cafe (Steam, Garena, Assasins Creed, 2k16, etc)? Gathering some thoughts from experienced gamers and tech person. Then may plan to build dn ako this May kaso not quite sure if compatible sila pareview na din po and comment if anu mas ok.

    newbie lang po ok napo ba yung setup ko bossmac suba? soon upgrade ko yung mobo sa msi z170 krait gaming ipon mode ulit need ko po paba yung ssd card? ano po suggest ninyo? for all around pc , gaming, editing etc.. salamat po sa mga sasagot

    1. ahhh buong set na pala toh, suggest ko stretch mo na to 40k bro and get a 1TB WD Black… di ka na maghahanap ng SSD pag yun gamit mo unless gusto mo lang mabilis boot ng windows mo. OVerall ok naman no need to go Z170 unless mag i7 ka or need mo ng SLI.

  37. Are these parts good and are they all compatible with each other?

    Intel Core i3-6100 3.70 GHz Skylake Processor
    Palit GeForce GTX 950 StormX 2GB GDDR5 128Bit
    Gigabyte GA-H110M-DS2
    GSkill Ripjaws V 8GB Dual DDR4 2400 (F4-2400C15D-8GVR)
    Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB WD10EZEX
    Tecware Infinity USB3.0 Mid Tower Gaming Case
    Seasonic S12II 520W 80PLUS Bronze

    1. Everything checks out in this build BUT do make sure you’re getting the DDR4 version of that motherboard to work with your memory of choice. So yeah this is good to go 🙂

  38. Lol at the 30 fps. This build won’t even crank up an enjoyable gaming experience. At least go with an i5-3xxx build with a modern graphics card so you can stay within budget but have an enjoyable experience.

  39. sir mag tatanong lang kung yung g4400 3.30 ghz skylake compatible sa MSI H170A Gaming Pro first time build ko sana if ever salamat

  40. boss pag inupgrade ko ung proc at vid to i3 skylake and zotac 960 mga magkano kakalbasan at ok na ba un for good gaming — or need pa palitan ibang parts?

      1. Check mo tong build na toh bro, full set with i3 and 960 na comment ni ayan sa taas:

  41. Sir pa check ko po sana kung ok na ung ganitong build

    Intel core i3 4170 (3.7GHZ)
    Ecs h81h3-m4
    Asus gtx 960 turbo 2g ddr5
    WD 1tb sata 3.0 7200 rpm

    Cooler master elite rc102 w/500w psu casing
    Samsung 18.5″ ls19e310 hdmi/vga

    Total nya is 28k.pinakita ko lng ung build mo then sabi ko is palitan n lng gtx 960 kaya naiba din ung ibang parts ung iba suggestion n lng dun sa shop. Wala po ako masyado alam sa computer for gaming lng po sana. Tia

    1. Hmmm malakas toh bro pero overkill ung GTX 960 para sa monitor resolution mo. Maga-upgrade ka ba in the future ng monitor? Also need mo power supply na good quality. Pwede pa yung included sa 1st few months pero suggest ko palitan mo agad with brands like Seasonic or Corsair.

  42. Hello po. This is my first time building my own rig. If isn’t too much of a bother, please take a look at my proposed setup and provide feedback – if okay lang ba siya.

    Here it is:

    PROC: Intel Core i3 6100 3.7 ghz 2-core Skylake
    MOBO: LGA1151 ECS H110M4 – C3D
    HDD: WDC Blue 1tb
    RAM: 8gb 2133 Team Elite
    GPU: Palit GTX 750 Ti StormX Dual 2gb
    MON: BenQ 22 VZ2250H, LED, IPS Full HD Monitor
    PSU: Corsair VS450
    CASE: Tecware Infinity USB3.0

    My budget is restricted at a cap of Php35,000. And prices here in the province is a tad higher than those I’ve seen posted above. This setup costs north of Php30k already. Any input would be greatly appreciated. 🙂

    I play World of Warcraft, Dota2, NBA 2k (but have not been able to play 2k16 as my current pc cannot run it), and plan to try out current titles once my new pc is built. I also do work (word processing and spreadsheets) on my pc as well as a lot of media consumption. Ok lang ba ang setup na to? Thanks in advance and more power to this wonderful site. Truth be told, this guide inspired me to build my own setup rather than purchase a preset package from the store.

    Also, is a Full HD monitor with a response time of 14ms a good one?

    1. Yeah everything checks out but I highly recommend getting a GTX 960 to hit that mainstream sweet spot for 1080p performance. Tell me what prices you have can see around you for the GTX 960, preferably a ZOTAC, GIGABYTE or ASUS one. Also please don’t get a 14ms monitor… that would be highly irritating in game.

      1. Zotac GTX960 isn’t available here. What we have is an Asus GTX960 that costs 10,750. Shall I make the jump? GTX750i costs 6,500.

          1. Thanks for the advice!

            Do you think it’s a good idea to order the components online? Say at Dynaquest or PCHub?

            1. Yes, they’re fine. I think they charge extra for delivery but I suggest talking to them about it first, maybe you can get a discount if you’re ordering in bulk or a complete built rig. Just talk to them and see how it goes.

              1. Thanks again BossMac. Would installing an SSD improve the overall performance? Is Avexir V1 a good choice?

                1. Given the lack of support of Avexir for the local market, no, I don’t recommend it for peace of mind. Samsung and Kingston would be good choices for SSDs but other than improving loading times, I wouldn’t really recommend it for this build for maximizing the budget. I suggest a WD Black overall for that.

        1. Perhaps I will hold off for a while and wait for the release of the rx 480 and see how much it would cost locally. Do you think it’s a good plan? The rx 480 performs better than the gtx960, yes?

  43. Hello Can i ask a build that can run dota 2 in 60fps high settings in a 1080p around 15~20k budget?

  44. Hi. Awesome build here! But honestly I’m quite a newbie here. I don’t know if it would be cheaper/better to buy this PC (specs below) and upgrade some of the parts nalang. Or simply build my own pc using this build nalang?

    PC Price: P18,500

    Processor : i3 4th gen
    Mobo : msi z87 g41 pc mate
    RAM:4stick 14gb kingston 1333
    hdd 1tera
    Video Card : msi gt 630 2gb ddr3
    case thermaltake
    psu thermaltake 450wtts heavy duty

    Samsung Monitor 19.5″ Included (I don’t have a good monitor as of now, so additional expense yun if I build my own pc from scratch)

    Thanks! Hope you guys can help me. 🙂

    1. Those are good specs but too underpowered graphics-wise. You do get a monitor though but still, our specs is more powerful but you just need to shell out more for the monitor and peripherals. The performance difference will be far superior though.

  45. Okay. Thank you boss! I guess I’ll keep saving up for this build. What monitor do you guys recommend? Para ma maximize yung graphics, etc.

  46. Mga boss, help naman po newbie here. Ask ko lang kung anung build pwede ko gawin para sa games like Shadow of Mordor and Inquisition? 20k- 25k range po ng budget.. Salamat in advance sa mga mag rreply po =)

    1. Etong build na toh bro kaya naman yan depends lang talaga sa monitor and settings na gusto mo. Pero as is, pasok yan, kung hindi pa kasama monitor jan sa budget mo upgrade mo toh i3 ung processor or if kaya mo stretch to 30k

  47. Hello B2G. Ask ko lang kung safe na ioverclock yung Palit 750ti sa PSU ng Corsair na VS450? Pwede rin ba yan ioverclock yung 950? Tanong ko na rin kung kaya niya ihandle yung 960 na walang overclock

    1. If gamit mo ung specs in this build you should have no problems overclocking up to a 950. A 960 I would say kaya pa pero alanganin na since I’m not sure if peak or average load capacity nya ung 450w. For a 960, I’d say go for a 520W or more pero overclocking a GTX 960 shouldn’t even move your wattage draw by more than 20w so unless you’re bumping voltage and fan speeds, it shouldn’t be a problem.

      1. Actually, Yung build ko ngayon ay based sa last year na build :
        Intel i3-4170
        Gigabyte h81m-ds2
        Kingston HyperX 8GB ddr3
        WD 320GB(Reused from the old PC)
        Corsair VS450
        750TI/960(Nagdadalawang isip kasi ako kung ano bibilhin ko sa dalawa since nung binili ko yung rig wala silang stock ng 750ti)

        1. You mean wala ka GPU right now? Kaya pa ng vs450 yan no problem if 950 then talagang pushing it na with the 960. Hindi ako 100% sure kasi hindi ko alam if ung 450w is max rated capacity or peak load wattage. If tama basa ko dito sa specs sheet nya it should handle a maximum of 520w so that suggests sustained load nya is 450w so you should be safe. Still its not designed for sustained peak loads kaya i suggest something higher just to be safe.

          1. Thank you bossmac! Nagdadalawang isip kasi ako kung ano bibilhin ko since hindi ganun kalaki budget ko. Sa tingin ko mag 750ti nalang muna ako, Overclock ko siya at bili nalang ako ng bagong PSU pag bumili na ako ng 960. Safe parin ba syang itaas ang voltage kahit konti pag inoverclock ko yung PSU?

  48. Pacheck po ng compatibility first time to build pc this is for gaming like dota2 and cs:go thank you in advance! Cheers!

  51. Boss Mac,

    Planning to build a gaming PC, mostly online games ko are DotA2, Blade and Soul, tpos offline games like Witcher 3, etc. Nabasa ko din mga comments, my budget is 30k. Yung mga builds ba, pwede bang bilhin ko nlng as a whole package or need pa talaga ako mag assemble, kasi 1st time ko sana mag assemble if ever. Thanks

    1. i run a 950 mostly but its on a 4790K, i’ll have a performance update on this particular build soon but yeah i assume low-med on 1080p would be playable 720p would be better on the 950.

  52. Suppose there is a P2,000 price difference between a GTX 950 and GTX 960, which would be a better buy? I play mostly online games (will purchase overwatch within the next two months), GTA V, NBA 2k, Rocket League.

    1. I say if its still within yuor budget, get the GTX 960. Unless you’re planning to upgrade after, the 960 is still a worthy card and will play most games at 1080p well, AAA titles might need tweaking so no maxing out there but the majority of games out there is highly playable in 1080p with a GTX 960. I use one on my primary machine.

      1. I see. So GTX 960 is a prio then 🙂 I was under the impression that the 960 was not a very significant upgrade that given a considerable price difference, the 950 would be a better choice. I shall get a GTX 960 then 🙂

        I will not be upgrading within the foreseeable future. I have an i3 6100 and recently disposed of my GTX 750 ti so that I can upgrade to either a GTX 950 or 960.

        Salamat BossMac!

        1. You should be good with a 960 unless like I mentioned you’re more of a maximum settings on AAA games kinda person, if you’re really after eye candy, a 970 would give you better performance but personally I’ll go with a 960 and just dial down on the settings. You could opt to wait until the RX 480 appears next month, if the price is good and the performance is as promised you might have yourself a perfect option.

  53. @BossMac Suba
    Okay po ba to anu po opinyon niu dto most likely bf4 and dota2 lalaruin ko

      2. ung games po ung Dota 2, CSGO, Skyrim at ung Monitor po ung Acer AL716 resolution nya 1280 x 1024

  56. Boss Mac,

    Pwede po ba na wlang GPU? IGPU lang ng Skylake Pentium G4400 ang gamit. Kaya ba na 60fps ang dota2 at csgo?

    1. kung 720p lang reso mo and low settings kaya 60fps siguro pero parang nginuya na yung hitsura nun mejo panget tignan, pwede mo naman tapos upgrade ka after a few months since mas recommended ko talaga may GPU.

  57. Great..Sir, I’m planning on using this for 3D work purposes. I’m just gonna replace the processor with an 6th gen i7. Sa tingin nyo po sir, ok lang po ba?

    1. Better, definitely better. But if you’re using it for 3D I highly suggest a lot more RAM, depending on your dev app it might vary but a lot of RAM always helps in any dev project.

  58. Boss Mac,

    Pahelp nmn po on building a pc worth 25k

    Gagamitin ko po for Gaming(Overwatch, Dota2, CS:Go , and Dead by Daylight)

    will purchase po sa DynaQuest since siya po mas malapit saamin 🙂

    Thank you!

  59. Good day! I’m planning to build my first pc with this build as reference. I plan to swap out a couple of parts(all parts taken from dynaquest).
    Processor: i3-6100 3.70 GHz Skylake
    GPU: Zotac GTX 960 AMP! Edition 4GB 128Bit DDR5
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB Single DDR4 2400 CL14
    Case: Fractal Design CORE

    I have a few questions.
    Would those parts be compatible?
    Would all those parts fit in the Fractal Design CORE case?
    If you could suggest a case with a small form factor that could fit all those, what would it be?

          1. The 380 is faster by a few percentages but factoring in driver stability and the overall market status as well as efficiency, I’d still go for the 960 just because its getting cheaper nowadays.

  60. pwede po ba to?
    Asus H81M-D Motherboard and Intel Pentium G3250 bundle
    Leadway 6846G PC Casing with 700watts PSU

    1. Sir Kindly check po kung pwede to.kung compatible po sila.kaka start ko plng po sa 3D. Planning on using Zbrush.. Zbrush po eh CPU lng gamit kaya wala pa po video card. Purpose ng build na to para pag naabot ko na yung point na kelangan ko na ng video card tsaka nlng po ako bibili.

      1. Yeah this is good enough, I tried zbrush sa athlon x2 dati this thing can handle it faster. And upgradeable toh so good choice. If aabot ka sa point na mas malaki na resolution ng drawings mo I suggest getting more RAM din along with the vidcard just to help din sa multi-tasking 😀

        For my 31k build

          1. You already have plenty of RAM for this build what you’d want first is a GPU upgrade soon. I’d get a Seasonic PSU also instead of the aerocool just because Aerocool isn’t releasing any new PSUs lately and that’s not a good sign. So Overall you’re good with that build, just get a Seasonic power supply.

                1. RAM will work but its too high, i assumed you wnated it for a future upgrade but right now the non-Z170 boards rarely support speeds higher than 2133. If you don’t plan on upgrading soon stick with 2133 sticks to save money

  63. Boss, ano po ba ma eexpect ko sa build na to? Just purchased this yesterday for 19,590php including monitor dito sa cebu.

    Intel Pentium G3260
    MSI H81M-P33
    2x4GB Hyper X ddr3 1866 (too late na nung nalaman kong di pala compatible sa G3260 – 1333 lng)
    Zotac 750Ti 2GB ddr5 128bit
    Corsair 450W

    Gamit ko dito ay basin homebased job/esl. Gusto sana malaman ang performance niya sa games esp Skyrim (STEP mods), The Witcher 3, Battlefield 4 and the likes.

    Ok lng sakin hindi gaano ka ganda ng graphics basta smooth lng ang gameplay.

    1. EDIT ko lang po. Total fail yung pag order ng mrs ko sa monitor. Instead of ​AOC M2060SWD2 20 inches 1080p ito yung binigay sa kanya, AOC E2070SWN… kaya pala less ng 3h pesos. grrrrrr.

      Anyway, wala na akong magagawa. Question ko nlng ko sana ma accommodate nyo update ko lng specs:

        1. mejo hungry ung games mo so super low siguro toh right now pero at 720p maappreciate mo naman siguro and pwede mo pa i-medium ung BF4 but for Skyrim and Witcher, mejo choke na.

          Usable naman sya for everyday use on your work ung AAA games lang talaga. ANg maganda jan in the next 6 months pwede ka magipon for a i3 or i5 haswell then a GTX 960 and you should be good 😀 for 1080p gaming even with those games (BF4, Witcher, Skyrim)

  64. Hi Bossmac pa check naman po nito kung ok na po pang gaming, movies etc. can’t decide sa GPU kung gtx 1060 or rx 480 pero later na lang po yung once na lumabas ang better brand ng both cards and review since dito din ako madalas nag babasa ng mga review 🙂 as of now ito po muna yung napili ko for my gaming rig. May old LED monitor ako kaya un muna gagamitin ko to be upgrade na lang once i got a v.card

  65. BossMac, pwede na rin po ba ang build na to sa games (dota at skyrim) at the same time pang work na rin. Basic Photoediting lang naman po. Pwede ko pong taasan ang budget ko hanggang 25-30k. Maraming salamat po.

    1. Dota2 clear yan but Skyrim… may mods ka ba? Most likely med settings lang toh sa skyrim in 1080p. Otherwise, for photo editing this is good naman, if you can invest in an i3 processor, that’s also better. Kasama na ba sa budget monitor and peripherals?

      1. Sige po magpalit ako ng i3. Yun lang po ba ang palitan ko dito or may mas ok na build para sa budget ko. Balak ko pong buuin to mga next month. Hindi po kasama sa budget yung monitor, meron po ako ditong extra kaso 720p lang. Yun po muna pansamantagal. Heheh. Maraming salamat po BossMac.

      2. Itry ko pa lang po sana yung Skyrim. Di po kasama ang monitor at peripherals sa budget ko. Gawin ko pong i3, kung kayanin, magi5 na din po sana. Salamat po, BosssMac.

  66. Hello po. Bago lang po kasi ako sa pagbuild ng pc itatanong ko lang po sana kung walang incompatibilities. Or kung may maisusuggest kayo na mas maganda po for 30k build. Salamat po mga sir.

    1. Overall its good na, yung case subjective naman yan kung ano trip mo. Hmmm sa GPU, kelan mo plan bumili? Kung hindi soon, baka gusto mo antayin price drops ng GTX 970 or paglabas ng GTX 1060, otherwise ok naman toh pero I suggest waiting on those new releases and price drops in the coming weeks.

      1. Salamat po bossmac. pero worth po ba na i3 skylake tapos z170 or mag-i5 po ako tapos babaan ung mobo? Ano po ba mas maganda at mas cost efficient? Kailan daw po ba ung price drops? Salamat po ulit.

      2. Salamat po bossmac. Itatanong ko lang po ano pong mas cost efficient ung i5 at mas mababang mobo or i3 na z170 ang mobo? Baka din po this coming month ako bibili ng gpu. Kailan po ung pagdating ng 1060? Salamat po ulit.

        1. Depende yan sa path mo. Para saken unless mag-overclock ka, no need for z170 so H110 + i5 is mas efficient for single card, non-OC use kesa z170+i3. GTX 1060 later this month darating yan for sure.

          1. Thanks bossmac. I was inspired by this site like peer evaluation. Balak ko kasi mag oc kaya medyo tinaasan ko ung psu tapos kung sakali magdadagdag din kasi ung ram. Nice advice po. Salamat ng marami. Looking for more upcoming builds from this site.

            1. Welcome bro, much better talaga if you invest on the PSU earlier as it serves as a good foundation for future upgrades. Good upgrade path yan and hope to see your build once its done. Thanks for the support also!

  67. Hi Bossmac! Gusto sana makahingi ng comments/suggestions regarding sa below build ko. Planning to buy in a few weeks. PC is for gaming/home theater/etc.

    CPU: Intel Core i5-6400 2.70-3.30GHz Skylake ₱8,690.00
    MOBO: Gigabyte GA-H170M-D3H mATX ₱5,590.00
    RAM: 1x Kingston HyperX Fury 8GB Single DDR4 2133 CL14 (HX42C14FB/8) ₱2,150.00
    GPU: Zotac GTX 960 2GB ITX 128Bit DDR5 (ZT-90310-10M) ₱8,900.00
    CHASSIS: Tecware Infinity USB3.0 Mid Tower Gaming Case ₱1,240.00
    Total = ₱26,570

    Only those 5 since I already have the ff. from my current core2duo desktop:
    HDD1: 1TB WD Blue 7200rpm
    HDD2: 250GB Hitachi 7200rpm
    PSU: Antec VP500P
    Speakers: 5.1ch Altec Lansing Speakers (reason for a mobo with 7ch audio)

    Question: Is the Antec 500W psu sufficient for the build? Or do I need to buy another psu?


    1. You won’t be doing 500w naman with this build unless you plan on adding in another graphics card in the future otherwise this is good and you’re all set for 1080p gaming. 😀

      1. ok, thanks! around what range kaya papalo ang price drop ng gtx 970 pag dumating na un 1060? parang willing to wait ako pag aabot sya less than 10k

  68. Boss mac, pahelp nman kung okay na tong build na to. Mostly dota2 and csgo lalaruin ko pero try ko dn magAAA games onti onti cguro.
    Pasuggest nman kung may kailangan ako baguhin dito?

    CPU – Intel skylake i3-6100
    MOBO – AsRock H110M HDV
    GPU – Palit GTX 950 2gb ddr5
    RAM – Kingston HyperX Fury 8GB Single DDR4
    PSU – Corsair VS450
    HDD – 1tb WD Blue
    Monitor – AOC M2060Swd 19.53″ M2060Swd WLED Vga Dvi
    Case – Aerocool Gt advance Black gaming

    Cavite area po ako. Pasuggest ndn po saan the best bumili ng mga parts? If wla sa cavite san nearest?

    1. Di ako familiar sa area bro kung sino seller jan try mo ask sa groups sa FB baka may makapagturo pero kung best prices andito talaga sa manila para sure. Byahe lang talaga kalaban

      1. Thanks boss mac. Sa dynaquest nlang po sgro ako bbli. Ttwag ako sakanila.

        Pero okay nmn po ba ung build ko? Balak ko ung chasis is gwing tecware alpha tpos upgrade ndn ung PSU into Seasonic s12ii 500w. Need pa ba mgcooler tska add ng fan sa gntang build?

        1. Yes bro ok yung build and suggest ko nga sana yan, Tecware ALpha and Seasonic PSU. Sa cooler no need pa naman since malamig yang proc mo pero kung may budget ka pa go for it.

    1. There is no definitive study that proves it but there are plenty of DDR3L products out there you can use if you’re concerned about that. DDR3L uses 1.35v (OC voltage for DDR4) and its an acceptable threshold if you’re worried about skylake memcontroller degrading because of the voltage.

  69. Hi Sir Mac

    paki check naman po itong setup ko sa PC ko

    CPU – intel core i3-6100
    MOBO – MSI H110m pro-VH
    RAM – Kingston 8 GB FURY Black
    HDD – WD 1TB caviar Black
    PSU – FSP HEXA He – 600
    Techware Infinity gaming black case

    For Gaming like Dota 2 and Diablo 3 . ok na po ba yang setup na yan? thanks!!

  70. The DDR3 memory which runs at 1.5v could damage the G4400 (1.35v ram controller) CPU overtime. Lowering the RAM voltage to 1.35v should fix it but normal users dont know about this.

    1. Majority of low-end motherboard won’t allow you to set voltages but this can be offset by using DDR3L sticks with 1.35v default voltages. Again, there have been no definitive accounts of DDR3 1.5v damaging Skylake chips and boards but for those cautious, DDR3L is there for your consideration.

  71. Bossmac anu po suggestion nyu sa balak Kong ibuild na rig ko po na to fit po ba to
    for Dota2 and bf4 po and cs go

    CPU – intel core i3-6100
    MOBO – MSI H110m Gaming
    GPU – Zotac GTX 950 2GB DDR5
    RAM – Corsair vengeance 1x8GB
    HDD – WD 1TB caviar Blue
    PSU – Corsair vs450 w
    Case– Phanthom Rakk case

    1. Fallout 4 on 720p is easy, 1080p med-high mostly. Not sure about that game though but if what I’m looking at is right (Black Death early access on Steam) it should be able to handle that too

  72. Napapansin ko sa mga build na yun na napapabayaan na CPU.

    Take note na karamihan ng latest games ngayon ay nag dedemand na ng QUAD CORE CPU.

    Kaya di ko na recommend ung mga PENTIUM G4400 / PENTIUM G3260 3.3GHZ kasi mapipilitan ka parin bumili ng GPU

    Another thing na kailangan mong intindihin is, anung resolution mo ba lalaruin games mo.

    Kaya sa lahat ng nag nanais mag build ng PC, Eto ang maitutulong ko sa inyo.

    Entry Build [No Video Card or GPU Build since processor has internal / No Monitor]

    720p High to 1080p Low Medium


    > ASUS A68HM-K – 2,345

    > Generic Casing without power supply – 450 [Humanap ka sa mga nag susurplus pc parts mura lang]

    > TOSHIBA 1TB 7200 SATA3 HDD – 2,310 [Base on my experience kasi WD at Seagate ko bumigay]

    > 2x KINGSTON 4GB DDR3 PC12800/1600 – 792x 2 = 1594 [You can go for Hyper X mas better kung may pera ka and please 2 4gb to utilize memory bandwidth properly kaysa isang 8gb stick]
    [Dependent sa memory pag built in video card gagamitin mo.]
    > HEC COUGAR SL-400W ATX PS – 1742 [subok ko to ang tahimik at may allowance ka to upgrade with a GPU or video card in the future]

    Alternate DEEPCOOL DE500 PSU 600W – 1550 [Kung gusto mo pang mag tipid]

    Cost : 11998
    Monitor : Pwede ka naman kasi tumingin sa Surplus or OLX pero kung brand new, eto
    LG 19.5″ 20M37D LED w/ DVI – 3,980 [1600 x 900p resolution]
    ACER 19.5 S200HQL BD LED MONITOR – 3,852 [1600 x 900p resolution]
    Kung 1080p ready gusto mo :
    ACER 21.5 S220HQL LED DVI – 5,508

    Bench marks below without GPU or video card :
    dota 2
    Call of duty advance ware fare
    Farcry 4

    Converting to Mid – High build 1080p to 1440p :

    Kung gagawin mong mid to high range PC to, Video card nalang dadag dagan mo :

    > PALIT GTX750Ti STORMX DUAL 2G DDR5 128BIT 5,690
    > PALIT GTX750Ti STORMX OC 2G GDDR5 128BIT 5,790
    > SAPPHIRE R7 370 2GB GDDR5 NITRO 7,780
    > SAPPHIRE DUAL-X R9 270 2GB GDDR5 256BIT OC 8,000
    > PALIT GTX950 STORMX 2G DDR5 128BIT 7,790

    – Ikaw na bahala depende sa budget mo, may mas mahal pa jan kaso di na praktikal.

    Sa video card yan lang ma susuggest ko pero mag check parin kayu online kung may quality Vcards na 2ndhand which will require expert checking nga lang.

    sana makatulong…

    1. Yup as much as possible ishi-shift na naten toh sa DDR4 memory since mas mura inaantay lang namen mag-level uli prices dahil sa new GPUs pero recommended ko to go for H110 mobo with DDR4 support. Sa GPU compatible naman lahat yan basta ung RAM make sure na terno sa board. DDR4 as much as possible 😀

  73. Sir,

    Ask ko lang po kung okay yung mabubuo kong PC.

    Processor: Intel Pentium G440 or Intel i3-6100

    Motherboard: MSI HM170M PRO

    RAM: Kingston 8 gb 2133Mhz Fury

    SSD: 120 GB SSD Now V300 solid state drive

    PSU: Corsair VS450

    Case: Anything

    Base sir sa post ko wala akong GPU. Anong suggested video card po para dyan sa mid gaming? May nabasa ako AMD RX 480 daw maganda kaso problema sir is doble presyo dito sa atin compared sa ibang bansa at hindi naman reasonable yung price para sa akin.

    Thank you and more power!

    1. HIndi naman doble bro, try mo hanapin yung 4GB lang kung meron pero for now habulin mo GTX 1060 ni Zotac for 12800 kasi un na cheapest na nakita ko and definitely faster than RX 480. Choice mo naman though if gusto mo RX480 still.

      Overall ung build mo is good, I suggest going for larger SSD pa rin though baka kasi kapusin games mo jan pag marami na nakalagay.

      1. Thank you sir sa input. Nabasa ko sa latest reply nyo may bagong build kayo. Wait ko din muna yun for comparison. Sayang naman kung konti lang yung magiging difference kung mas maganda yung bagong build nyo.

        More power sir!

  74. Good Day Boss,

    Pa check nga po ito na build at kung may iba pa po na option… pang gaming po siya at gusto ko po kasi na pangmatagalan na po na gamit.thanks

    1. Wow good build, pero parang mahal pa ung GTX 960 mo bro san shop yan?

      Wala ako makita option dito unless gusto mo mag-drop to H110 motherboard or ibang brand like ASRock B150 around 4300 ata un pero other than that wala na talaga unless makakita ka ng cheaper GTX 960

      1. good day boss,

        Salamat sa reply, dito po kc ako sa baguio sir kaya limitado mga pagpipilian at kung order naman ako sa labas ng baguio parehas lang ung shipping fee niya, ask lang boss kung may malaking difference ba ang single fan s double fan, kasi ung gtx960 na single fan ay 8.2k ang presyo dito.thx

        1. naku anlamig na jan sa inyo, wala kang issue kung double fan o single fan yan haha pero seryoso suggest ko hanap ka na lang ng best prices sa mga shop jan kasi mahal kung bababa ka pa dito sa manila or siguro pinakamalapit sayo pampanga eh malayo pa rin

          1. good day boss,

            ganun po ba hehehe… salamat po sir, ung single fan na lang kunin ko para gawin ko na CORE I5 6500 3.2GHZ 6MB LGA1151 sir,

  84. Hi BossMac Suba!

    I already bought 2 System units before and sira na for how many years and ‘di na naasikasong ayusin. Ang laging problem is kusang namamatay yung PC, parang bumibigay ganon, dahil sa magdamag kong paglalaro before. Every time na bumibili kasi ako wala akong kaalam alam sa Specs, and now gusto kong pag-aralan pero ang hirap maintindihan.

    We’re planning to buy a new one again para ma-simulan ang journey sa paglalaro ko ng Dota 2, and really hoping to become a professional gamer someday after months and years playing Dota 2 seriously. Can you build a PC gaming for me? Is it possible to run a 15k budget PC in high settings of Dota 2 (It’ll be the only game on my PC if possible). If I can’t get a PC running high settings (in Dota 2) worth 15k, what would be the least budget to run it?

    Please help me build a very least budget PC gaming that can run in high settings, and also define all the parts of a system unit, which part(s) should I prioritize if I still need to upgrade it, what kind of chasis should I choose, do I still need to buy air or water cooling fan and how many? What is heatsink, overclock, etc. and explain every items you’ve picked for a PC build so I can really understand it. I hope you can help me and sorry for a very long message, I am just eager to learn these things before I start playing. I will always wait for your reply. Have a nice day!

  85. May question lang ako guys..

    Napansin ko kasi parang nung nagpalit ako sa Palit GTX 950 StormX eh parang medyo bagsak ang FPS nya compared sa Old GPU ko which is R9 270x Dual x

    e2 ang specs ko paki advise nalang kung anong dapat kong palitan kasi parang nag bobottleneck ung vid card ko sa CPU eh..

    Mobo: Gigabyte FXA88XM-HD
    GPU: Palit Geforce GTX 950 StormX 2gig
    Ram: 8gig DD3 Hyper X fury
    CPU: A10 6800k

  86. I’ve looked at some websites, and here’s what I came up with:

    Processor: Intel Core i5-6400 (Php 8,600)
    Motherboard: Asrock H110M-HDV (Php 2,995)
    RAM: Kingston 8GB 2133MHz DDR4 Fury (Php 1,950)
    ROM: 1TB Hitachi SATA 2 (Php 1,995)

    Yung graphics card at iba pa, wala pa, pero okay kaya yan? O masyadong mahal at unnecessary yung i5-6400 na processor? Kasi ang balak ko lang namang laruin sa PC ay MOBA like LoL and DOTA 2 in the future. Tapos Photoshop, word processor, watching movies na, yun lang. Sa console kasi ako naglalaro ng ibang games. Any advice would be appreciated! 🙂

  99. Hi Boss Mac,

    I saw this article na very active, so I decided to join.
    This coming Dec 15th, I will get my 13th month pay, probably i will get total of 20k (9k on hands). And ofcourse I would like to invest it to desktop, but I would like to have a professional thoughts regarding on my budget at sa gusto kong “build” na makuha.
    1 of my goals kya gusto ko mag ka PC is to Play DOTA 2 Ultra High, yan lang naman kasi nilalaro ko at Ragnarok, pero I would like also to balance yung capability ng processor since gagamitin ko din sa business ang PC na bblihin ko, probably ang gagamitin ko ay Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator and same like application used to “T-shirt Printing” business.
    Could you give me enlighten me up regarding on this? I would like to play DOTA 2 at ultra high settings and at the same time capable to edit pictures, making designs for my T-shirt Printing business.

    TIA Boss Mac.
