After reading reviews, comparisons, and asked from the experts on tipidpc.com forums. I finally came out with my final plan on my next month's new build with an Intel i5-3470 3.2ghz upto 3.4ghz. I decided to have this i5 than the A10-5800k because of processing power. i5's are compared to AMD's FX-8 core processors so I would benefit more from this with gaming, video rendering and editing. Adding Palit GTX 650 ti OC Edition to the i5 will beat the A10's 7660D + HD 6670 ddr3 in gaming performance.
Here are the specs for i5-3470 build suggested by sleepygeepy, a member of tipidpc forums.
(All prices are based on PChub gilmore, fairview, pampanga, and alabang stores)
I don't include the HDD because I already bought a 500gb WesternDigital hard disk.
In this setup, I won't be getting an 20' LED because my budget is not enough so I will just be using my old 17' LCD screen.
I just want to share this set-up because this maybe useful or a guide for you if you are planning to build a PC. No overclocking on this procie because its not an intel K series. The purpose of this set-up is for medium to high-end gaming, video editing/rendering, and photo editing. Better results when having an solid state drive and a good atleast 24' LED screen.
By next month, I will be having my "budget" gaming PC with AMD A10-5800k Trinity. AMD's APU are said to have the best integrated graphics card in the market. You can play modern games in low to medium quality and if crossfired with a compatible dedicated discrete video card, it will be having more graphics power.
Thanks to my self, blogs and website because the money that I will be spending for this is from Google adsense and nuffnang.
Since my dad already bought me a PowerColor Radeon HD 6670 ddr3(Can be crossfired with A10-5800k.) and Western Digital 500GB SATA, so the total cost of my new PC will be 20,100 Pesos but the real cost with video card and hard disk drive would be 26,000 php or more.
All of these will be purchased on PC Net Miles shop in Alabang area. I am really excited to try it out and make gameplay videos!
My Budget PC specifications

I use the GDDR5 version of 6670 because some said that it is more better than the 6670 DDR3. The Processor can be overclock to 4.2 GHZ using the stock fan but I won't overclock it until I get a decent CPU cooler for this.
If you are planning to get a "budget gaming PC" I will suggest this to you because you can crossfire with a discrete 6670 card, but if you want to have more future upgrades on high-end video cards, you need to have an Intel Sandy Bridge build (atleast i3-2120) or an AMD Phenom II(Atleast x3) build.
I hope you like this post on "Budget PC" build. I will be having another post when I got my PC.
