  1. Budget: ₱85,000.00 ($1,700.00) Country: Philippines Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 3rd person games/Civ 6 then for business stuff, mostly using excel so not really a factor Ok, so my previous pc stopped posting 7 days into the Community Quarantine and the monitor started bleeding a week after. Pissed me off to no end, have been canvassing for a new build since late March, just would like to ask opinions/suggestions on the build i’m planning to acquire. This would be the first build that i ever had that would be using an AMD cpu, Have always used an i5 since i started pc gaming a decade ago, but have seen reviews about the r5 3600 being the best mid tier cpu. MoBo Choices Asus ROG Strix B450-F Gaming Asus TUF X570 Plus Gaming (Non-Wifi) CPU Choice AMD Ryzen 5 3600 RAM Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro (2x8gb/3000mhz/CL15) STORAGE WD Black 250GB m.2 nvme (boot) Seagate barracuda 2TB HDD (storage) GPU CHOICES Asus ROG Strix RTX 2070 OC 8gb (if 1440p) Gigabyte RTX 2060 Super OV 8gb (if 1080p) PSU Seasonic Focus+ 650FX Gold fully mod CASE Corsair Spec 06 TG RGB MONITOR CHOICES Asus VG278QR (1080p) Asus VG279Q (1080p) Asus VA32AQ (1440p) Asus VG27BQ (1440p) (if budget permits) PRE-EXISTING Working PARTS MSI GTX 1060 6GB Armor Samsung 860 Evo 250GB Seagate Barracuda compute 1TB NOTES Have contacted various parts shops and have informed me of a shortage of RTX GPU’s except the 2070 super and up models. Will it be alright if i use a Free Sync Monitor? 1440p Free sync monitors are a bit cheaper than the g-sync ones. Been also looking parts at amazon & newegg but worried about receiving a dead unit, and the shipping costs and import dues makes it more expensive. Would like to try 1440p gaming if the budget permits, my previous monitor was an Asus VC239, and the previous build almost maxed out every game i threw at it.
