After asking some good people here, I would like you to rate & ask if this build would be able to hit 60+ fps in DOTA 2 & NBA 2k20 with MAX settings? My budget is around 30,000 to 40,000 pesos. I am also lost in idea of a great performing HDD/SSD that would fit into my budget into this gaming setup.

STORAGE = ANY RECOMMENDATIONS PLEASE

I'm looking to use my existing MONITOR which is Philips 191EL 19-inch LED Monitor, would this be still good for this setup?

Hmmm, often the best solution for storage on standard gaming systems, is a reasonable sized SSD for a boot drive, with a standard HDD for games/files/photos etc.

Something like this:

PCPartPicker Part List

Storage: Samsung 860 Evo 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($79.98 @ Amazon)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.99 @ Other World Computing)
Total: $139.97
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

Hey there,

What res monitor will you be using?

I would make one or two changes. I'd go for a Ryzen 5 3600, which is a huge jump in performance over the 2600. And if you are gaming at 1080p, maybe something a little stronger for the GPU. The 5500xt is capable at 1080p, but if you could get the 8gb version, that would help in some games, that will take advantage of more vram. In an ideal world, a 5600xt would be a perfect matchup with that system.

Of course these changes depend on your budget, but for the extra 100 €$£ or so, it would be worth it IMO.

Hi,

The Philips 191EL 19-inch LED Monitor has a resolution of 1366x768.

I'll take note of your recommendation if the budget can get up to there.
