        $700 Australian dollars isn't the same as $700 USD. So yes it does matter.

        I think you are going to be in a better position to look up prices in Vietnam than I would be. I wouldn't know where to start.

            Build is OK, but would be better with slightly faster & newer CPU. Also would be better with a SSD if you can afford it.

                As already suggested above I think the Intel Core i7-4770 or Intel Core i5-4570 would be better for gaming, if you can make it fit in the budget. But you are right, getting a good CPU and a SSD in a $700 budget isn't realistic. Something needs to be sacrificed.
