Just a SITREP, the HDD is not being detected anymore. I've tried it on my desktop and laptop in both case it's the same. I can feel that it's vibrating which means that it's spinning.

I guess when you crank the resolution and settings to their maximum? That's hardcore? Or when you push your rig to the limit? IDK though. Anyway, I usually play games from 2012 and older, new...

Even if I'm doing gaming on it, I will not be doing hardcore games. Plus, this PSU is only part of the ongoing upgrade that I'm doing on my new desktop. I don't want to delay the buying of my parts...

The power supply is actually bundled with the case. My computer is somewhat prebuilt-ish. I thought of buying the parts individually but it's actually more expensive (with same specs) if I do it.

To solve the issue of me getting a 550W even though I have a 600W, it's because I don't want to spend money on things just to have them blown up because of a shoddy PSU. Here's the picture of it, IDK...

Using that website you gave me, it told that I will need around 370 watts for 4690K and a GTX 950.

I actually thought of having EVGA PSU's before but the store then removed it for some reason. My...

I'm currently planning to get a Seasonic G-550 550W 80+ Gold Modular PSU. Together with that, I'm planning to throw a Palit GTX 950 StormX Dual. If you're asking why, in my place, this is a way...

Just found a deal for a Z97 and an i7-4790k for $290 (₱12,900). The CPU must be bundled with a Gigabyte or MSI mobo. I'm tempted to buy it right now, but I already have a build in mind. I don't know...

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...

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.

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.

those are all decent brands, but there's no reason to get a z97 unless you intend to buy a k series (overclockable) intel cpu (such as 4690k, for instance).

New build in 3 months (long-ish post)
