Probably in the philipines Arjay is looking at a local store. That said, most local stores have websites or at least parts/price lists you can access online. That would be helpful. Also, terrible selection seems standard (meaning the 550ti might not be as unreasonable as you'd assume).

Of course, because of that rather poor selection & component possibility, you really do need to tell us where you're shopping from smile.gif.

Get a HD 7850. plan for a cpu and mb upgrade in future. the phenom ii x2 can do well in most games. there will be few games which will be bottlenecked by your CPU. but as i said save up money and go for a FX-6300 with a quality motherboard like asrock 970 extreme 3.

the HD 7850 is backward compatible with PCI-E 1.x , PCI-E 2.0 motherboards. so it will work fine. as for the asrock board don't go for that as it only supports AM3 socket. save up some money and in future go for a 970 chipset socket AM3+ motherboard with support for the FX-6300/ FX- 8320/ FX-8350 . the asrock 970 extreme 3 or extreme 4 are good options
