Approximate Purchase Date: 2nd - 3rd week of December

Budget Range: $500-600 or 30-35k Philippine Peso.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (Valorant, Dota2, etc), Surfing, Movie

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: Totally new rig

Do you need to buy OS: No
Please note that if you're using an OEM license of Windows, you will need a new one when buying a new motherboard.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:
Philippine Sites such as (DynaQuest, TipidPC and etc)

Location: Makati or Quezon City (NCR) Philippines

Parts Preferences: I prefer Intel, but you can also recommend AMD.

Overclocking: No or Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 or 1920x1200

Additional Comments: I would prefer Black set, a bit of RGB is fine. Can start from a base setup and later to be upgraded to reduce initial cost.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Just want to have my very first newly setup Rig. I bought this current before already setup.

That is quite a low budget, what parts in the current pc? Maybe some can be reused.

download hwinfo,
install and open it=click run,
close the top window which is the system summary,
in the main window at the left top click "save report",
at the bottom of the next window check "Summary for Clipboard",
after that you'll see what's in the pc,
copy by clicking "copy to clipboard" and rightclick+paste in your next respons
would also like to know what psu is in there (maker+model+wattage) and how old that is, also what case.

Using pcpartpicker as an example is this about as low as i would go,

Hi @Vic 40,

Thank you for your response. Well, my current specs are:

Ryzen 5 2600
Asus B450M-A
Sapphire Pulse RX 570 4GB
Avexir Core 2 16GB DDR4 3000mhz
Seasonic S12ii 520w

Do you think i should just upgrade this? This has been with me since 2019.

The reason why i wanted to buy a new rig is that i got HW banned from Valorant. Since this is also a 3-4 year rig, i wanted to upgrade instead.
