Gaming PC Philippines Part 2: P25,000 Pesos Budget Build

Alright! Welcome to our PART 2 of Gaming PC Philippines Build Guide featuring GTX 1050 TI! Yes there’s a comeback!

Mr. Enzo emailed me asking for help for his Gaming pc that will fit under 25k.

Thank you for sending us an email Sir Enzo and I am glad to help you with that and also our community here in GamebuildPC would definitely help you too for your gaming pc.

To be honest, 25K budget for a gaming pc setup is a bit confusing especially for die hard gamers and builders. This is also a challange for me but I’ve come up with an idea on how we can fit Gaming pc under 25k.

Take note that this is just the main PC. This doesn’t include the monitors and other peripherals.

So without further ado, here’s the parts for 25k Gaming PC Philippines Build Guide:

CPU 

Intel Core i3 6100 3.7 ghz 2-core 

“i3 You say? I’d better get an i5!..” You think it’s funny? No. This bad boy only features two-cores but take note 6100 also employs hyperthreading. It’s basically adds an additional logical core for each physical core, which is handy for streaming, video editing, and multi-tasking CPU-intensive tasks. This help close the gap between it and a 4-core i5. You don’t need a third party cpu cooler with this one. Stock cooler will do just fine.

 

Motherboard

Too many choices for a motherboard but I would like to emphasize MSI B150M Bazooka. It’s not just supports i3 6100 but also it’s the cheapest among all B150M series.

It also include 4 DIMM slots supports for 64 GB of DDR4 RAM for future expansion.

However, We will choose H110 chipset: ASRock H110M HDV, this also supports i3 6100 but you won’t be able to upgrade for 64GB DDR4 memory. The good thing is this mobo will suits for our 25K budget and MSI B150M will exceed for another 1k.

 

Memory

8GB is the sweet-spot for most of games right now. We could get (2x4GB) sticks or (1x8GB) stick.

Avexir 8GB (1x8GB) Blue LED is our choice (because it’s cheaper compare to 2x4GB sticks). With this selection, we still have space on the motherboard for additional 1 more stick of RAM, leaving room for another 8GB expansion.

 

Storage

This is always a debate whether to get SSD or HDD. I’ve featured it on the previous build guides but I’ll still explain it here:

“HDD will give you a lot of space with a cheaper cost. While SSD yielded faster read/write speed performance that definitely speed up your computing experience which is costly compare to HDD.”

Now it’s your time to decide. For me, I’d go for SSD which gives me 6-10 secs boot time when pressing the Power button. Sounds great right? and later on, I’ll have enough money to buy 2TB HDD for my movies and demanding games.

So, our Storage choice for this build guide is HDD. Seagate 1TBNow you’re bit confused but for a budget gaming rig you should have a lot of storage space for your games and files which is the champion for our benefits vs cost ratio.

 

GPU

Now! The most discussed GPU of the year. Just kidding but seriously: GTX 1050 Ti

In my previous article Is GTX 1050 Ti worth it? Where I discussed is it actually worth it compare to GTX 1060? Well it is. Just don’t get the mini series of this card. In my experience, mini cards won’t do great and often overheat. I always ask this to myself. Why would someone get a mini if they could get the big brother with just a small price difference?

In our build guide I would recommend ZOTAC GTX 1050 Ti Dual Fan 4GB

 

PSU

Now for our PSU, we should get the relatively-ok PSU in the market. You may get SEASONIC for your build which I would always recommend due to its solid reputation in terms of PSU quality and performance but you may also try different brands like Corsair and Cooler Master.

But for our Build guide SEASONIC S12II 520watts 80+ Bronze is our main buddy.

 

Case

Ok, to be honest I am not certainly happy with the choice of our case which I found that cost around 1k. Tecware F3 because we would exceed on our 25k budget if I’ll choose different case. Now I am giving you the floor to select and decide what kind of Case you want for you PC. 🙂

      2. Hey there! I couldn’t pass up the deal the seller was giving me, so instead of a GTX 1050Ti, I got the Zotac GTX 1060 AMP! Edition. Total cost was 28,000. Could go higher depending on the store. Gaming is smooth and awesome. I could run The Witcher 3 on ultra.

      Thanks,
      Kevin

      1. Once you get the equipment, please message me again. Really looking forward to building my future PC!

  4. Thanks really looking forward to building this! Btw if I decide to upgrade my CPU in the future will it be possible? For example upgrading the i3 to and i7 is it possible?

  5. Can someone tell where can i buy all of these? i mean,which store is likely to have all of these. thanks

  6. Hi there! I new to these PC Builds and I’m wondering if this kind of build with the 25k budget be enough to run 3d max, revit and auto cad. since I usually use these programs in my workplace. Will these builds be enough to run smoothly the applications that I use especially in 3d max, rendering. thanks 😀
