Need a very basic computer to be built for my dad. Usage is nothing heavy, but would appreciate a decent config for a hassle free future.

1. What is the purpose of the computer? What all applications and games are you going to run? (Stupid answers like 'gaming' or 'office work' will not work. Be exact. Which games? Which applications? Avoid the word 'et cetera.')
Ans: MS Office, Browsing, Movies, Skype, Youtube.

2. What is your overall budget? If you can extend a bit for a more balanced configuration, then mention this too.
Ans: 12-13k

3. Planning to overclock?
Ans: NO

4. Which Operating System are you planning to use?
Ans: Already have one, Windows 7.

5. How much hard drive space is needed?
Ans: Not needed, already have a HDD.

6. Do you want to buy a monitor? If yes, please mention which screen size and resolution do you want. If you already have a monitor and want to reuse it, again mention the size and resolution of monitor you have.
Ans: NO

7. Which components you DON'T want to buy or which components you already have and plan on reusing?
Ans: Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard, Optical Drive, Hard Drive.

8. When are you planning to buy the system?
Ans: In a couple of weeks.

9. Have you ever built a desktop before or will this be done by an assembler?
Ans: Most probably by the assembler. If its delayed by 2 weeks then I'll do it myself.

10. Where do you live? Are you buying locally? Are you open to buying stuff from online shops if you don't get locally?
Ans: I'm open to online shops as well, so I'd appreciate if the online prices are included. Locally, I'd buy from Goa.

11. Anything else which you would like to say?
Ans: Nothing!

get the cheapest intel pentium processor(not older/lower than G620) you can find & no need to spend 2.5k on a cabinet for such a system.get any cheap/generic intex cabinet for ~600.

Thanks rijinpk1 and whitestar_999.

I've decided to use my old cabinet itself, saving a few bucks in here.

I got a price locally for an i3 3220 processor with a H61M D2H motherboard for 12k. Is the motherboard decent enough or should I go for the one mentioned by you? What might be the difference between the two can you tell me?

Also, G2020+H61M D2H I'm getting for like 9k.

no deal for pentium and h61 for 9k.opt for i3 and b75 chipset as suggested. b75 chipset has usb 3.0 ports,sata 3 6gbps and better build quality than h61;-)

Okay, thanks for the response guys. Yes, the prices are high. I'll be looking at a couple more shops and then will check flipkart.

Thanks for the help again guys.
