Build Guide: Php 50000 Custom Gaming PC

In this feature, let’s setup a Php 50000 Custom Gaming PC budget. To put in a twist to this build, let’s put in some objectives.

Objectives

A. Build a Gaming PC within Php 50,000.

B. It should run with Ray Tracing… essentially with any kind of NVIDIA RTX card.

C. It has a combination HDD and SSD for the OS, some games, and storage.

D. Procure from a single store (item/s can be out of stock at the moment).

Now, let’s go and build shall we? I’ll assemble two almost similar PCs using AMD and Intel. Instead of the shop I previously used for listing, I’ll go with a different shop that has its own online store and also in Lazada. For this build, it’s going to be Easy PC this time. Note that this post is not in anyway sponsored by Easy PC or Lazada. I just happen to see that they currently have a bundle promo for AMD parts since the 9.9 sale. Another thing to note, bundles usually have their CPUs come in ‘tray’ form, this means they do not have a box and CPU cooler. But in this promo, Easy PC has thrown in a bundled CPU cooler.

AMD Php 50000 Custom Gaming PC Build

PartsPrice
CPU/Motherboard/SSD Package: AMD Ryzen 5 2600/MSI B450M Mortar Max/120gb SSD/Gaming Bundle WBPhp 12,199.00
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 8gb 1×8 3200mhz Ddr4 Memory (x2)Php 3,470.00
Power Supply: Gigabyte P650B 650 Watts 80 Plus Bronze Power SupplyPhp 2,990.00
Hard Disk Drive: Western Digital 3tb Harddisk Drive BluePhp 4,695.00
Case: Deepcool Matrexx30 SI Micro ATX Tower Pc Case BlackPhp 1,475.00
Graphics Card: Palit RTX 2060 Super Gaming Pro 8GBPhp 23,630.00  
Fan: Rakk Ounos X 120mm Eclipse White Led FanPhp 250.00

Total: Php 48,709

Build Notes: The deal breaker here is the Graphics Card Price. Apparently the store hasn’t dropped their prices on NVIDIA RTX 20 series cards like PC Hub. While there’s savings with the CPU and motherboard bundle, the old GPU price takes away the savings. It should roughly be Php 43,709 if we disregard objective E and source the GPU elsewhere, or get the better RTX 2070 Super and still net a total of Php 48,709. The recent MSI board, CPU and SSD bundle helped out in getting the prices down. This allows us to get something more out of the budget, like an extra 2TB of storage. Alternatively, getting a faster WD Black 1TB will allow for faster game load times.

Intel Php 50000 Custom Gaming PC Build

PartsPrice
CPU:Intel Core I5-9400f Coffee Lake Processor Socket 1151Php 7,950.00
Motherboard: MSI B365M MAG Mortar Motherboard Socket 1151 DDR4Php 5,400.00
Memory: Kingston HyperX Fury Memory 1x8gb Ddr4-2666 Black (x2)Php 3,590.00
Power Supply: Gigabyte P650B 650 Watts 80 Plus Bronze Power SupplyPhp 2,990.00
Solid State Drive: Ramsta R900 256GB NVMe Solid State DrivePhp 1,899.00
Hard Disk Drive: Western Digital 1tb Harddisk Drive BluePhp 2,190.00
Case: Deepcool Matrexx30 SI Micro ATX Tower Pc Case BlackPhp 1,475.00
Graphics Card: Palit RTX 2060 Super Gaming Pro 8GBPhp 23,630.00
Fan: Rakk Ounos X 120mm Eclipse White Led FanPhp 250.00

Total: Php 49,374.00

Build Notes: There’s no bundling on Intel, unlike AMD’s. It does not bundle in a free SSD, CPU, motherboard and cooler. However, the I5-9400f is definitely more than a match to the AMD R5 2600. Having a higher boost clock. While it does have a few terabytes less (2TB) in maximum storage, it makes up for using a 256GB M.2 NVME drive for the OS. Like the AMD build, if the store enacted a discount on the RTX 20 series cards, we can definitely go lower than 50k and even throw in a 60Hz monitor (just to have a monitor), or opt for the faster 2070 Super variant. This Php 50000 Custom Gaming PC for me wins this particular round for its overall performance.

Conclusion

The build series works as an exercise of trying to build a PC given a budget. In this scenario, we are faced with building a Gaming PC that is Ray Tracing capable. Thanks to some discounts brought about by the entry of newer models, we are able to match parts from older generation CPUs and motherboards. As someone who built an emergency gaming PC on a budget, and used it up to this year, it’s certainly feasible with a limited budget. While the processors and motherboards are a generation older, we can’t discount that they’re pretty much capable for gaming for several more years.

One other thing, you may notice that GPU prices from this particular store hasn’t dropped. If I were to build using PC Hub as the base for prices, the processor/motherboard selection may be more expensive, but their large price drops on GPUs are worth taking a look as well.

In relation to that note, be sure to read the PC Build: Php 70000 Custom Gaming PC. I have recently updated it for September 2020 prices. The price drops can be surprising.
