Php 50K Gaming PC Build Guide [September 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 48,090

Prices are based on PC HUB Online PL (September 26, 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.
The Gigabyte RX580 Gaming MI OEM had a price increase but it’s still a good card for Php 12,990. The same story applies for the price bump on the processors here, but I’m not sure how the AMD chips are affected. The RAM prices are still volatile, while it had a decent price drop for the lower frequency variants, the high-end counterparts had a massive increase. As mentioned on the previous post, the Ryzn builds benefit from higher frequency RAMs and is heavily affected by this price hike.
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.
You could still opt for a GTX 1060 6GB if you really want to, so I’m still putting it up in our Intel build as a suggestion while maintaining the price under PHP 50K budget.
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.
