Processors (CPU) and Motherboard (MOBO)

Video Card | GPU

I bought an affordable brand new video card from facebook market place.

  • Sapphire Pulse 2GB 128bit GDDR5

Power Supply | PSU

I recommend not to purchase a generic power supply if you are into gaming or any tasks that may require extensive usage of GPU. If you have a budget, buy at least 600 watts true rated power supply. However, if no budget at least buy a second hand true rated power supply. It is better to have a second hand true rated power supply than a brand new generic one.

I had purchased a second hand true rated Zalman ZM LE II 700 watts power supply from Openpinoy.
