I need your thoughts about my build. Anong adjustments ang marerecommend niyo? Upper limit na to ng afford ko. So anything more expensive kailangan may cheaper alternative sa other parts. Thanks.

SilverStone SST-PS08B Micro-ATX Black USB 3.0
Seasonic M12II-520 Bronze EVO Edition 520W
MSI H97M-E35 LGA 1150 4+2 USB 3.0 Ports
Intel Core i5-4690 LGA 1150 3.5 GHz 4 Cores
Gigabyte GV-R927XOC-2GD 2GB GDDR5 256-bit WINDFORCE 3X
G.Skill RipjawsX F3-12800CL7D-8GBXM  8GB (4GBx2) 1600 MHz DDR3
Western Digital WD10EZEX 1TB 64MB 7200RPM
ASUS DRW-24B5ST 24x SATA
TP-Link TL-WDN4800 PCI-Express x1

need mo ng dvd writer and wireless card? most people don't so kung hindi mo need yan, pwede mo tanggalin and yung savings mo dagdag mo sa ibang components (i.e. SSD for OS, higher rated PSU)

Kailangan ko both. Nagririp kasi ako ng audio CDs. Malayo ako sa router. Across the room. Kapag gumamit ako ng cable, magulong tingnan.

Wala akong planong magcrossfire. Di pa ba sapat ang 520W? About the SDD naman, later na iyon kapag may pera na ulit. Makasurvive pa naman ako kahit HDD lang muna.

enough naman pero kungbaga not much elbow room. sa list mo mga around 400W na typical output niyan. hindi pa kasama other peripherals na ikakabit mo na kukuha ng power sa PSU (i.e. USB devices). and keep in mind ang binibigay na power ng PSU degrades over time. and yung nakalagay na 520W is max, it wont always output at 520W and over time yung output niyan pababa ng pababa

Hmmm. Nagcheck ako sa TPC. Ang price difference ng 620W sa 520W is P690. Ang problema, lampas na talaga sa budget. Yung GPU , balak ko sana MSI or ASUS. Dahil over the limit na, Gigabyte na lang pinili ko kasi masmura. Anong adjustments masuggest mo para within budget pa rin?

Estimated wattage nga pala sa pcpartpicker.com is 353W.

520 x 80% = 416

Ay buti nga naremind mo ako sa efficiency. Nalimutan ko eh. 620W na lang kukunin ko. Lampas na ako sa budget.

err, thats not how you compute efficiency based on 80+

medyo confusing ang exact explanation pero eto para mas madali

i.e. if running your 600W PSU at 100% with 81% efficiency (80+ bronze), you will draw 600W + 140W (600W / 81%) = 740W from the outlet and therefore waste 140W
although some computations put it at 600W x 19% = 114W

but whatever the correct one is, you should get the point that its not how much your PSU will output, its how much wattage is drawn and wasted by the PSU

and like I said, mga close to 400W na ang draw ng system mo WITHOUT other components plugged in that will also draw power. your PSU will only output max of 520W and over time yung ibibigay na power yan will be less and less so baka mga after a year or two, hindi na enough ang ibibigay for your system. unless you are planning to upgrade by that time anyways. ako kasi I typically build my PC to last for 3 years so kahit mga 500W lang draw ng system ko, I use 750W or higher PSU. also, usually higher rated PSU have better efficiency (80+ gold and platinum) so less waste

Nagbasa ako online. Tama nga ang sinabi mo. Ang rated output is the efficiency. Tapos ang inefficiency is excess wattage drawn over the rated output. Since at around 50% load naman ang components ko, I'll be at 85% with 15% excess wasted. Right? So ngayon di ko na alam alin ang bibilhin ko. Kung 520 ba or 620.

520 is more than enough sa setup mo, from a quick glance estimate ko sa total power draw mo on load around 450W. Seasonic is of the best if not the best manufacturer in the psu industry. looking at your board, hindi ka naman makakapag OC sa cpu at hindi ka rin makakapag sli/crossfire, if you plan on upgrading to a higher amd GPU (280x, 290, 290x)  baka kulangin na. Pero kung higher nvidia cards yakang yaka.
