So basically I just asked my friend to tell me what parts to buy. Here's what he came up with: (attachment)


price is in philippines pesos (explains some filipino phrases used)

30k pesos is about 600 dollars.

i'm not really looking into making a gaming computer. just want something generally fast for surfing web/watching movies etc

thoughts?

If you are tight on your finances then i would even suggest getting slightly older parts. If it is for surfing the web and watching videos even hardware parts 3-4 years old will perform just fine. In my opionion, the most important thing when buying hardware parts is to buy a very good power supply. In every PC i had , the power supply was the first to die.

As suggested by arf invest in a known good brand of PSU such as Antec or Corsair, it is false economy not to.
