PC Setup Thread

Do you also play with non-PlayStation devices? Do you enjoy playing as a plumber saving a princess? Or some bald marines? Or maybe you want to play using the touchscreen?

Kung unsure ka sa game, puwede naman iyon subukan mo muna sa mga "suking tindahan". :bigmouth:


Next month na rin daw ang AMD Ryzen. Kung may nagagamit naman pa kayo sa ngayon, kahit hintayin na lang ng kaunti. :)

I was thinking of building an HTPC with a disk drive (just to make back ups) and then came up with this list. I couldn't even find a case smaller than my gaming PC that would be able to fit at least 2 3.5" HDD and a disk drive.
  • CPU: Intel Pentium G4400 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor
  • Motherboard: Asus H110I-PLUS/CSM Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard
  • Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2133 Memory
  • Storage: Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
  • Storage: Western Digital Red 3TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive
  • Storage: Western Digital Red 3TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive
  • Case: Silverstone ML03B HTPC Case
  • Power Supply: Silverstone 300W 80+ Bronze Certified SFX Power Supply
  • Optical Drive: LG UH12NS30 Blu-Ray Reader, DVD/CD Writer
Right now I'm thinking of just buying an external blu ray reader (any recommendations) and a 3TB external HDD, since the parts from the list above cost too much. That and the case looks like a VHS player.

^thanks! Kasya sa backpack. Laking convenience for me.

Tipid din sa kuryente ang kabylake and pascal gpu combo. Around 90w lang ang power draw pag gaming, mas tipid compared sa 1st gen PS4 and XBone :)

As Borat would say: "Very Nice!" :thumbsup: He he... Very nice indeed! And yep, I like some of these "mid-range" GPUs now. More power efficient while having really good performance. :)

Btw, may mga prices na daw for Ryzen octa cores. May kamahalan pa rin, pero compared sa Intel, mukhang mas bang-for-the-buck na. I'm already thinking of building another PC for "backup". Mahirap kasi walang magamit sa bahay. :lol: Baka mag AMD Ryzen na ako.

What components can I safely buy months before I assemble a PC?

I'm going to assemble my first PC this December so I'm saving up. Actually, gonna save up what I can and use the credit card for the rest.

So what can I buy and store? PC case? I know I could buy the OS now and just store it somewhere. What else can I buy? Will it be OK if I buy the electric parts, have it tried out in another PC then if it's OK eh store them?

^kung ako syo isang bagsakan na dapat ang pagbili mo tapos para walang sisihan, dun mo na rin ipa-assemble sa bibilhan mo. It's pointless to buy now and assemble later kasi isipin mo yung gastos ng individual parts tapos labor pa. Atleast pag pinabuo mo na agad makakatipid ka pa sa oras at makikita mo pa na umaandar on the spot.

Think about this, if you buy parts individually tapos iba-iba rin ang binilhan mo then nagkataong may topak yung item hassle pa na maghahabol ka dun sa mga stores na kinuhanan mo ng piyesa. Kung magpa buo ka na lang sa isang shop ng isang bagsak tapos nadiscover mo may defect, atleast isang lugar na lang pupuntahan mo di ba?

For now, save up and antay ka ng holidays para magpabuo once na naglabasan na ang mga discounts or promos. If you have the time and budget, head to gilmore, madaming shops dun na pwede mo pagpilian.

So it's better to buy all parts from one shop? I guess that makes sense...but what if the part I want isn't there? Like the casing and motherboard? The others I can settle with what's in the shop though.

Does you advice apply to operating system too? I don't see any problem with software unless the disc has damage. (if it is a disc)

^mas maganda kung iisa na lang ang bibilhan mo para iisang lugar na rin ang hahabulin mo pag kelangan mo ng replacement. Magcacanvass ka naman so malalaman mo agad kung may available na piyesa or wala.

Ganito technique dyan, sabihin mo sa shop gusto mo bumuo ng pc, let's say, a gaming rig tapos sabihin mo agad magkano budget mo para sila na tatantsa para sa yo. Most of the kilalang pc stores do this para ma-customize nila ang needs mo accdg to budget.

As for the OS, pwede mo rin bilhin yung legit na retail OEM (not really cheap) or mag download ka nalang ng installer. Not gonna make much difference though. Importante compatible yung OS sa mga drivers para sa mga ikakabit mo na piyesa.

If it was me though, gaming laptop na agad bibilhin ko. Hindi rin naman nagkakalayo ang presyo sa isang full blown rig. Atleast portable pa.

Ah. What I have is a laptop and I don't want laptops anymore, and I do not want bloatware and limited upgrade possibilities so no pre-build PC. This will be my first assembled PC.

Yep, going for the OEM OS.

If you do have the budget,i'd say go all out with your rig. Atleast future proof na yan.

Pero kung limited ang budget mo, madami naman mid entry dyan na pwede na, kargahan mo na lang ng mataas ng RAM at storage and you're all set. :agree:

its not a practical idea to buy parts by parts and store them for me. by the time na complete na yung setup mo after ilang months malaki ang chance na bumaba na ang presyo ng mga nauna mong biniling parts. tama si grayfox, isang bagsakan na lang sa isang shop. pwede mo pa ipabuo sa kanila para less hassle ka na pag uwi mo at sure na gumagana lahat ng parts. ganun ang ginawa ko.

for me ang component na hindi mo dapat tinitipid ay yung SSD. ang laking convenience dahil sobra bilis mag boot ng PC mo. kahit 128gb lang ok na. importante mabilis magboot. in my case more or less 10 seconds lang nasa windows na agad ako pagka on ko.

naka ilang gaming laptops na din ako dati pero nabibitin talaga ako :sweat: hassle din pag masira mga components. unusable agad.
