Hi all,

I am looking to purchase a budget PC (in Delhi) with full HD capability, smooth OS functioning (Vista/Windows 7) and good enough gaming performance (just OK performance will also do).

My budget is ~25K.

Please suggest the best config available in this budget..I know its on lower side but lets see..:D..

Also, no preference among AMD or Intel..basically whatever gives the best performance will do..:)

Thanks in advance!
:smile:

^^just wait for a week. Looks like 785G mobos have made their way into Indian market and MSI model is available for some 4.5k and ASUS's is availble for 6.5k (at lynx-india). But you will be needing DDR3 for that.

IEEE1394 is the firewire port - many high end cameras and expensive external hdds uses this for data transfer as it is faster than USB 2.0
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_1394_interface

RJ45 ( not RJ35 ) is the ethernet or LAN port where you usually plug in your network cable or the cable that comes out from your ADSL modem to browse net :p
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RJ45

Mobos change a lot from time to time - what is best today will not be a best buy a few months later.

Let us know your budget for speaker & mobo & which platform you wanna go - intel or AMD ?

Hi Friends,

I wish to get a PC with intel i920 processor but i am confused for other hard wares. My budget is 40-45k. I am stuck with various Questions

Don't get me wrong but 40-45K is not enough to buy a core i7 based rig coz a core i7 920 will cost you Rs. 14.5K & MSI x58 pro mobo will cost you Rs. 13K. 3x 1GB of DDr3 will cost you Rs. 4.5K or 3x 2Gb will cost you Rs. 9-10K as x58 supports triple channel.

For gfx card nothing less than GTX260 would be a good choice for core i7. GTx 260 costs Rs. 10.5K.

1TB HDD costs Rs. 4.5K. So the whole deal will cost you nearly 50K.

BTW, you need a monitor, a good PSU like corsair VX550 atleast @ Rs. 6K and a cabby with good ventilation. A good cpu cooler is also required if you want to OC.

Increase your budget to 75-80K :p

For a good shop in your city try this one :

Bond, Desi Bond!
True. 70k is bare minimum for quality core i7 system. You can buy it for 50k too but you need to use a 2k gpu, 300 bucks mouse and k/b and cheap grade PSU etc, which is not worthy.

Go for Core2quad/duo if you are inclined towards Intel or AMD Phenom II X4 if you are inclined towards AMD.
