Not sure what hard core gaming is ?

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 releases today doesn't interest me much.

And yeah, you know the Philippines. You could get stuff internationally, but the problem is paying for it to get inside the country. Though I was surprised that their store sells the G502 for $57 while the ones on Newegg (US)/Amazon (US) go for $75. There's not much stores that I could find that sells decent parts. The rest have either no websites but good stores or they have a website but not so good stores.

That's a good PSU. Above link is a review. That's a pretty good price for it too, considering the exchange rate.
So far, the G-550 is the only thing in my mind and what the store is able to offer something decent to me.

I'll just tell you guys again whenever they have something new.

l I think the FSP is not that bad a brand as I have pulled a lot out of old machines and reused them again and if you read the relevant stuff here it might help to make your choice Thye do have a lot made for other brands as you can see and this mightbe worth considering FSP Raider 650W 80Plus SILVER Power Supply | DynaQuest PC

They offer a decent output plus they do make stuff for other brands but the choice is yours as I don't know how your currency compares to ours it is difficult to say which I would personally buy given your choice.
