    I'm trying to build a PC that will look decent even after a few years from now,
    Do you think this build will fit.
    I'm in the Philippines and parts are VERY limited.


    Proc: i5 2320 2.9GHz
    GPU: Sparkle GTX 560
    HDD: Seagate 1TB SATA
    Memory: KIngston 4GB PC3-10600 DDR3
    Motherboard: MSI Z77A-G45 Z77 Ivy Bridge CPU
    CD/DVD: Liteon ETAU108 8x External DVDRW
    Casing: Antec 300
    AVR: Thermalite Litepower 700W

    Do you think these things will mix?(like compatibility and stuff)
    thanks in advance

    Just a few thoughts;
    1 I am not a fan of msi motherboards however the board you selected does support the cpu you selected so that should work ok. If you can go with either a gigabyte or asus board, that would be a better choice.
    2 When I check the specs on the pw supply you posted, the mfg does not even list outputs on each rail. I am always highly suspect when a mfg will not post specs like that. In addition it shows only a 230V input so be sure you have the correct house voltage ie 230V and not 115V. If you can purchase either a corsair or seasonic pw supply, that would be a better choice.
    3 Hard drive. Go with a WD black or RE series drive. They are better built than seagates AND they come with a 5yr warranty instead of the shorter seagate warranty.

    Thank you!
    I originally planned on getting a Gigabyte Motherboard since it was quite a common one when I looked online. Also, Asus was quite common as well. What Motherboard would you suggest? somewhere near 70-120 $

    I'm a caveman when it comes to these AVR PSU stuff. I have an a voltage regulator where I plug my pc, then the voltage regulator is plugged to the socket at my house. I only know of 110V and 220V, I was not aware of 115,230. As I said it supplies here are liumited, and the only ones are APC,Acbel,Orion,Huntkey and Thermaltake. Sorry it was note Thermalite but Thermaltake in the original post.

    There are no WD blacks here, only WD ones. Closest I see is WD 1TB Sata, which is around 2 dollars cheaper.

    Supply voltage is generally quoted as 110~120V and 220~240V so anywhere in there is ok ie you will see it as 115V or 230V and that is fine.

    Here is a link to a basic no frills asus board that supports the cpu you have selected.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131837

    Something like that board would work fine and [IMO] would be a better choice than msi.
