    I think MSI RS480M2-IL has changed to MSI RS482M4-ILD . dont worry its similar only diff is that later contains 8 channel audio .

    Basically i have to upgrade my old P-3 machine.
    I want to upgrade to an AMD based machine. Purpose of the PC would be:

    1) For occasional programming.
    2) For playing multiplayer games like Counter Strike, Unreal Tournament etc.

    Since my budget is limited, i don't want to buy an external Graphics card for now (maybe later). That's why i am preferring a motherboard with on-board graphics.

    My budget is around Rs. 20,000

    I have the following components in mind:

    Motherboard: ASUS A8N-E/Asus A8N-VM CSM/MSI RS480M2-IL/Gigabyte GA-K8N51PVMT-9.
    Processor: AMD 3200+ (939 pin)
    Harddisk: 120GB/160 GB: Western Digital/Seagate
    RAM: 1GB Transcend DDR RAM
    Case+Powersupply: Antec 550W power supply (don't know abt the case though).

    Please help me...

    Re: A good AMD motherboard with onboard graphics

    I just checked out the reviews of various motherboards with on-board memory.
    I think Asus A8N VM CSM is the best of the lot.
    So my configuration so far is:

    Motherboard: Asus A8N-VM CSM
    Processor: AMD 3200+ (939 pin) (Venice Core)
    Harddisk: 120GB/160 GB: Western Digital/Seagate
    RAM: 1GB Transcend DDR RAM
    Case+Powersupply: Antec 550W power supply (don't know abt the case though).

    Please suggest abt the other components too like "how can i distinguish a Venice Core based AMD 3200+), Harddisk, RAM, Case and Power supply.

    thanks for ur help...

    @montylee-U will have to stretch ur budget coz u will get what u suggest for around 21k excluding cabinet and power supply.

    Amd 3200+(I got it for 7200)
    Asus A8n-vm(I have a8n-e, got it for 5600 and a8n-vm's cost is same)
    160 GB Western Digital(I will suggest to go with Hitachi. I got it for 3800)
    512*2 Transcend Ram(I got it for 4600)

    Now total cost is 21,200 excluding case and power supply. I got the above config in March 06. So prices much have come little down. Still I think u will have to make some changes in the0 config if u want in 20k or stretch ur budget to 23k. That would be best. Hope this helps.

    For the Cabinets, do check out the Range from Zebronics...........

    They are quite good and watchout specially for the Elite Range.... Coupled with a VIP or ANTEC SPMS, this rocks.....

    A few models have around 4 fans all around.....

    And, did I mention the cost... One of the models, with two fans at the Side (just above the processor) and another at the back of the chassis retails for around 1,200/- Remove the SPMS and it is quite a steal...........
