Gaming PC Under Php 20K Build Guide [Q1 2019]

gaming pc under20k

The goal is to build an entry level gaming setup without exceeding the Php 20,000 budget. The build guide only includes the System Unit. Remember that this is only a guide and you don’t need to follow it religiously. Please feel free to point out any mistakes and/or suggest what you think can improve the build/s within this price segment.

Gaming PC Under 20k – Total: Php 19,150

LAST UPDATED: Feb 14, 2019

Prices are based on PC HUB Online PL (Bought with PC)


The latest AMD Athlon 200GE processor packs quite a punch for such a cheap price. It’s a perfect entry-level CPU for both gaming and productivity tasks. And since it comes with a Radeon Vega 3 graphics, this bad boy can run games without a dedicated GPU.

CPU Cooler

The AMD Athlon 200GE comes with a stock cooler and it does the job. Although not immediately nor necessary, I’d suggest investing for a decent cooler like the Deepcool Gammaxx 400 (Php 1,090). A CPU cooler will help preserve the CPU’s hardware quality specially in our country’s warm weather.


Here we will be able to choose between two motherboards that would depend on the upgradeability of the build which is entirely up to you.

The A320 chipset was an absolute trash of a motherboard (Because it cannot overclock and every processor that AMD has released recently was overclock-able. Basically, buying an A320 motherboard before only limits your processor’s potential.) until the AMD Athlon 200GE came out. Now a cheap A320 motherboard makes perfect sense when paired with a cheap locked processor like the AMD Athlon 200GE.

I highly suggest considering a B450 chipset with this build though, specially if you’re planning to slowly build a gaming rig but you’re on a budget. Getting a B450 motherboard now would allow you to replace your processor with a Ryzen processor in the future without limiting its OC potential and without replacing your motherboard.

Currently, the cheapest A320 motherboard is Asrock A320M HDV, while the cheapest B450 motherboard with four RAM slots is the Gigabyte B450M DS3H.

Video Card

NVIDIA’s GT 1030 2GB DDR5 is a cheap GPU that could help you maintain a better FPS on most games specially on higher resolutions.

If you’re only into Dota 2 and CS:GO, I’d suggest skipping out on a video card. Also, if you’re using this build as starter build, you might want to skip the GT 1030 save up for at least a GTX 1050 Ti.

Storage – HDD

For the storage, we will simply get the most reliable HDD in the market, the Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB.

Power Supply

The Corsair VS450 seems to be the cheapest, reliable power supply that’s appropriate for this build.


As for the case, this should be entirely up to you. For this price range, I would suggest the Tecware Nexus M purely based on its appearance and because it has USB 3.0 (it’s 2019, every USB ports on PC cases should be at least USB 3.0).

This build is capable of playing popular esports games such as Apex LegendsDota 2, LOL, CS:GO, Hearthstone, Overwatch and Fortnite as well as NBA 2K and GTA:V in medium to high graphics.

AMD Ryzen Starter Build – Total: Php 16,300

Unlike the previous build (Intel G4560), this build offers much more in terms of upgradeability when bought with a B450 chipset. Again, specially for those who are planning to build their Ryzen gaming rig slowly, this is a great build to start with.

      Those specs will definitely not do well for simultaneous streaming, recording, and gameplay, even on a light title like DOTA2. Even there’s just not enough resources to render that many frames quickly. You’ll at least need a 6th Gen Intel Core i5 matched with a 1050 ti and 8gb of RAM to get a good playable experience.

    I really appreciate these information sir. Can you recommend online store where I can source out these parts? I checked PC Hub Online but there are parts that are not available.

    • RoninVampire says:

      Hi, Jorim.

      You can try Dynaquest PC, bit it’s still better you look for something closer to your location.

      Also, we’d recommend looking at the updated buildguides in the site for Q2 2019. More value for your money.

    Any recommendation for upgrade path? Bought my pc on 2015. I only play Dota 2 and CS GO but would atill like to upgrade.

    Asus GT730 Videocard 2gb-64bit Pcie Ddr 5

    • RoninVampire says:

      Hi, Jersx.

      Unfortunately this is a really obsolete system. The only real upgrade here os to get a 3rd-gen i7, more RAM, 2.5″ SATA SSD, and probably a GTX 750ti.

      If you wanna leap to something more current, you can probably only keep the PSU, your HDD for extra storage, and your case. Everything else has to be replaced.

    May nag bigay kasi nitong quotation skn

    • RoninVampire says:

      We would much better be able to assess if it were itemized by price. Still, please note that this build doesn’t have a GPU and relies on the Ryzen 3 2200G’s Vega 8 on-board graphics, which may not give you a good gaming experience. It will run some games but don’t expect to go over 30 FPS.

      Also, it never mentioned anything about the case and PSU, which is just as important as any parts in a build.
