Php 75K Gaming PC Build Guide [Q2 2019]
The goal is to build a high-end gaming setup while trying to keep the cost close to the Php 75,000 budget range. While spending your hard-earned Php 75,000 on a rig is your decision, we just have to highlight that systems at this price-point are an extreme luxury unless the rig is also being used for paying productivity projects (e.g. professional graphics and video work), professional streaming, or as a prize show-piece (e.g. PC Build contest entries). Basically, if it’s not going to earn you any money, we don’t recommend going to this price point and beyond. The build guide only includes the System Unit. Also, please remember that this is only a guide, and you don’t need to follow it religiously. Please feel free to suggest what you think can improve the build(s) within this price segment.
Intel 75K Gaming PC – Total: Php 70,649

The Intel Core i5-9600K and the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X are the two best candidates for this price range. Though, we see the Ryzen chip will be better at streaming and the Intel build is only great if you purely want to maximize the performance in gaming.
Besides, if you don’t have a high-end gpu and will only play games at [email protected], Intel’s advantage over AMD at gaming is basically non-existent.
Both AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and Intel Core i5-9600K comes with a stock cooler and it does the job. Although not immediately nor necessary, we’d suggest investing for a decent cooler like the Deepcool Gammaxx 400. A CPU cooler will help preserve the CPU’s hardware quality specially in our country’s warm weather.
If you’re planning on overclocking right away, you should invest on something a little more expensive like the Hyper 212 LED Turbo CPU Air Cooler or Cryorig H7.
The Z390 is the latest motherboard for overclocking Intel’s unlocked processor, this chipset usually offers the best features since they are considered high-end motherboards. The MSI Z390-A Pro is currently the cheapest Z390 available and had pretty decent reviews around the web.
AMD’s B450 chipset is good enough for this build but you can opt to get a X470 chipset for better features and built-in overclocking tools. Again, make sure to get a motherboard with 4 RAM slots.
At this price segment, both builds will benefit from high frequency RAM (3200 MHz).
Even though Nvidia’s new Ray Tracing feature still isn’t supported in that many games, the RTX 2070 is the perfect card for this price segment with a performance similar to the GTX 1080. It’s pretty much everything you need unless you’re going for 4K gaming.
Storage – HDD
For the storage, we will simply get the most reliable HDD in the market, the Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB.
Storage – SSD
The Adata XPG SX8200 Pro is a great contender for Samsung 970 Evo in terms of performance and its price makes it the better choice between the two.
Be warned though, getting an SSD does not really make your system perform better and the only difference in games are loading times. An SSD is a luxury and unnecessary for budget builders, but it’s still a pretty sweet Quality-of-Life improvement though.
The Seasonic M12II 520w is a reliable PSU for this build and we think it’s appropriate for this budget range to opt for a modular PSU.
As for the case, this should be entirely up to you. The Phanteks P300 TG is definitely the best PC case under Php 3,000.
These setups will be able to handle anything ranging from Apex Legends, Fortnite, Dota 2, League of Legends, Overwatch, CS:GO, Resident Evil 2 Remake, Anthem to Battlefield V on max settings at 1080p. It is also possible to play on 1440p with better graphic settings or if you’re into competitive shooters, you’ll be able to utilize these builds when paired with a high refresh rate monitor. This setup is also suited for a better, more comfortable streaming experience.
