What kind of work do you mean exactly? E-mail, web surfing, 3D modeling, ...?

For 20k pesos, you might be able to put together a decent Athlon 3000G system.

Athlon 3000G

Cheapest B450 MAX motherboard available

2x8GB DDR4, 2666 or higher 

Check out out PSU tier list to compare models that are available to you


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Something like this is probably the best sort of PC you can build for this purposes for (around) 400 USD:

In my opinion, an SSD, but also HDD is a must to have (unless you have a NAS at your disposal). As you will want the speed, but also space to save your files.

16GB is also a must, as digital art files - especially the larger one - will need such room.

 

If it is at all possible though, I would suggest saving up just a bit more. While the build mentioned above is alright, it does lack proper room to expand and especially the CPU is a part which could be much better, if you just have like 50 USD to spend more.

 

So perhaps a second hand computer might be a better deal. Not sure what the market in the Philippines is like, but perhaps you could look into purchasing a second-hand computer from someone and maybe upgrading the RAM or something?

Where I live, I see Ryzen 5 1600 + GTX 1060 builds for 500 euros. Just add some more RAM (for about 40 euros) and you have a competent build.

Corel Draw is mentioned in the original post, which is a digital drawing program.

But it would be helpful to know OP's scope of these project (e.g. resolution).

I mean, I would go for the used market. Maybe if you will give us some links for Filipino sites with used goods, we could help you out better.
