Php 50K Gaming PC Build Guide [August 2018]
The goal is to build a middle-end gaming setup while trying to keep the cost close to the Php 50,000 budget range. 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.
Intel 50K Gaming PC – Total: Php 46,448
AMD 50K Gaming PC – Total: Php 49,049
Prices are based on PC HUB Online PL (August 25, 2018)
Just a quick heads up, prices are now based on promo prices when bought with a complete PC. Feel free to checkout the prices if bought individually on the link above.
So PCHub have declared a clearance sale on Gigabyte RX580 Gaming MI OEM and you can grab the 8GB variant for only Php 11,999. This is a really good alternative to the GTX 1060 6GB since even after all the price drops the 1060 wasn’t really affected to the point that its price is so close to the GTX 1070.
Performance wise the RX580 is on-par and even (arguably) better on some cases, at best the 1060 might only be a few frames better. But ultimately, with the price to performance ratio against the current price of a GTX 1060, the RX580 is the clear winner here. Plus, you could enjoy high refresh rate monitors with FreeSync with the AMD graphics card.
Similar with the 30K Build, I’ve replaced a cheaper brand RAM in the Intel build to save more money. (I didn’t replace the memory in the AMD build since Ryzen builds benefits from higher frequency RAMs)
And after all that savings, we are now able to squeeze in an SSD for our 50K Build. The RX580s might be limited though and so better grab that deal while it’s still there.
These setups will be able to handle every game you’ll throw at it even on high to ultra graphics setting at 1080p. Play PUBG, Fallout 4 and even Battlefield 1 while maintaining consistent FPS. The GTX 1060 is arguably the best card you could get if you’re only gaming in 1080p. Casual streaming is also viable with these builds.

Truly a beast in 1080p gaming, get ready to eat some chicken dinners
Again, I would recommend the Intel setup if you’re not interested on overclocking at all and care only about gaming. Otherwise I’d go for the AMD setup.
