    Don't go for that Intel original 915G chipset based motherboard.It is pathetic.Not at all worth the price.

    Also instead of going for Intel Platform,go for AMD64,it kicks the new LGA775's ass real hard.

    Give preference to Socket 939. :wink:

    6600 & 6600GT arent comparable.GT is much much faster.Also the GT comes with 128MB GDDR3 clocked at 1000MHz.Whereas 6600 256 MB comes with 256 MB DDR1,that too non BGA,having slower clock speeds. :wink:

    hi.
    Better be careful buddy before you buy.
    MSI K8N Neo platinum is not S939 motherboard. Its S754
    MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum is S939 and its still not available anywhere and price is 11500.
    As for graphic card I fould suggest to go for atleast 9600 pro/XT.
    Pro will cost you around 7.2-7.5K and XT is from 8.5-9.5K depending on brand.
    Also please dont buy a cabinet with any generic PSU. Be careful with your PSU.
    Get some quality PSU like Zebronics, starnet or VIP 450-500Watt.
    Those generic ones which come with normal cabinets wont be good enough for A64 machine. These are expensive PSUs but its nacessary that you invest in good PSU. Otherwise you will spend 55K and end up with highly unstable system.
    Also dont go for those cheap speakers. They wont let you enjoy games or music. You cant expect that from Rs.500 speakers. You better go for quality Philips Headphones for Rs.975 insted or get some deascent 2.1 speakers which costs around 1.3K if you have little more money go for Creative inspire 4400 which is arounf 3-3.3K
    And for processor and motherboard dont even thin k of going for grey market stuff. Get proper through official dealers and have peace of mind with 3 years warranty.
