Quad Core's all the way in, you don't want to be finding yourself upgrading from a dual core because that is a waste of $.

During the making of the plan of the build, I already set my mind to get a quad core CPU. The reason why I'm getting dual core CPU is because I will not have the money to spend on the other parts.

And you will be giving the dual core to your Cousin anyway, correct, so that`s fine.

And on the next upgrade you`ll get the quad core and keep it, correct ?

Yes, that would be the last thing and it will stay there for years to come. If I would be able to save more money, I might push it to an i5-4690K (most likely) or a i7-4790K.

Either of those 2 would be great choices, if you`re not going to OC, you don`t need a K series chip, and for gaming all you need is the 4690.

But the price difference is very minimul.

Intel Core i5-4690 Haswell Quad-Core 3.5GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I54690 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600 - Newegg.com

Intel Core i5-4690K Haswell Refresh Quad-Core 3.5GHz LGA 1150 Desktop Processor BX80646I54690K - Newegg.com - Newegg.com

Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz LGA 1150 Boxed Processor 301283 - Micro Center

Compare prices at a dealer near you.

Thanks for the links. I'm actually surprised that the prices on those sites are almost same here (cheaper/more expensive by $1). Probably I'll get a K series, just in case I would need in the future though I'm not doing anything extreme with my computer right now. Plus, so that I may not replace it with a new one. I'm not really a fan of buying anything and replacing it right after (Though there are some exceptions where I do it since someone also needs it. Also, if it's cheap though). And my goal here is future-proofing my PC. Anyway, thank you again.

The Micro Center price for the 4790K is awesome too.

Here's what I use:
DynaQuest PC

BenStore PC - Your #1 Source of latest gaming and professional gadgets

I would be buying at DynaQuest for my parts since it's also near me (walking distance). Though they don't ship internationally.

I haven't found a store here in PH where every part is available (like New Egg or other known seller). Probably because they can't acquire it due to taxes or some other reason. But luckily, I was able to find them and find what I need.
