Dude i don't actually read ur older posts & not aware of the whole story but since u have a budget of 4.6K for motherboard, i suggest u should take a look at Biostar 785G motherboard. The board has got capabilities of unlocking other 2 cores of ur processor where as 780G can't. U can even look for same chipset or 790GX in Gigabyte or any other brand but don't go for 780G.

^ +1 to that. 785G should have btter gfx onboard too. But u may go for 780G, its not bad. I would suggest have a look at 785G and see if it is viable or avlbl. Else, go for 780G. Gigabyte Rox!

GTS 250 512 MB or HD 4850 1GB

HD 4850 1 GB is my choice for 7.3K

@ drsubhadip - desibond sugggested the right things to you :p but for the speaker if you are on a budget you can get the altec lansing BXR1121 @ Rs. 1.2K.

The model desibond suggested is also very good but it will cost you Rs. 7K :p

GTS250 is a bit faster than HD4850 but if you want everything in your rig from ATI/AMD then get either sapphire or powercolor HD4850 :p

Though 785G is a good chioce it will be very hard to find in our local market .. youi know the drill :p
 

mumblehere

On The Game
Look for G45 or G31 based boards from ASUS/Gigabyte.

any particular model of gigabyte for this. for casual use only, with onboard n/w card, provision for mid-range gfx card.

its for my uncle, so stability is concern more than performance. thats why i specified intel mobo.

if gigy is better, then ok.

is G31M-ES2L ok?

Bond, Desi Bond!
yeah. you can pick E5200 along with Gigabyte/ASUS/Intel mobos. GA-EG41MF-S2H for 3.3k looks good. As for UPS, only pick APC.
 

kurtailed

Right off the assembly line
for 4.5k, you can get 9600GT or HD4670.

Hey cheetha, is the tv tuner card really necessary for the 66k comp?? And should I go for the zotac gts 250 amp! Instead?? Will it be a better graphics card??
So many topic on what to buy under certain price range so this bellow guide would offer a general idea on certain budget and need.

Basic Information before buying a Desktop PC ?

Few very important point which needs to be answered before you may think to choose the right hardware for your Desktop :D

  • The reason - You are in need to ask your self a basic question as why are you buying this PC. Do you plan to play game ? or rather this PC is about entertainment like movies / Music ? or may be you need to have a system for a certain type of app, such as video processing ?
  • The Budget - Most of us dont have an unlimited budget to think of, so the system needs to come under a certain budget :D so do make a budget for your self


Hey cheetha, is the tv tuner card really important for the 66k comp?? And could I go for the zotac gts 250 amp! ? Is it a better graphic solution?

Variable computer Configurations

It is not really wise to buy a PC 1st then think to run application later on. For example, if you are in need to have a PC for movies and entertainment, then you must concentrate heavily on your display. At-least a 19" Widescree HD TFT is what you should eye for as even to play full HD (1080p), one may just need AMD X2 4000 or above with cheapest onboard motherboard like M2N-MX SE along with 2 GB RAM.

But then again when you main need is heavy processing for video editing or ripping or may be data base applications, then its better to get a low cost CRT, where as invest heavily on your Core hardware as like a 45nm Core 2 Duo along with 4 GBs of system RAM !!!

Computers are for every one

yeah, in this post you may find full computer configuration ranging from Rs. 15000 up to as high as Rs. 60k.

So choose whats your budget and need.

Feel free to ask

Even though I list every time of configuration but as an unique user u may have question and doubt, therefore feel free to drop a question here mentioning your budget and need :D

So let us build our PCs :D

Lets Go Low

Target PC within Rs. 12000/- + TAX

Buy a PC which makes sense in a budget as low as possible... This would be a PC for basic Office job, running basic office apps for accounting, printing and stuff like that !!!! It will be running Windows XP with ease !!!

AMD Sepron 3200+ / AMD Sempron LE 1150 @ Rs. 1200 /- + VAT
MSI K8MM-V / M9MM-V @ Rs. 1600 /- + VAT

TAX @ 4% 482 /-
Total Rs. 13132 /-

This one is only meant to run windows XP, now if you plan to run vista or such for little entertainment, you can add on this, like getting 1 GB RAM @ Rs. 850/- instead of 512 MB, also changing the motherboard from VIA chipset based M8MM-V to Windows Vista Compatible ASUS M2N-MX SE @ Rs. 2300/- + VAT.

Students (upto std 12th) PC

Target Rs. 20000/-

PC now days are becoming must for students also... Helps on their home work, also allows them to run application for learning as well as little entertainment ... This will allow them to run Windows Vista with full effect, the onboard ATi HD 3200 grfx is just good enough for some gaming too..

AMD X2 4200+ @ Rs. 2600 /- + VAT

This is a really good platform to start your computer career on studies, it gives you ability to run any performance hungry applications. AMD Athlon X2 4200+ is a gr8 value for money 65nm processor where as you are getting the best available onboard graphics motherboard, the AMD 780G based. The motherboard comes with ATi HD3200 video chipset and along with 2 GB system RAM allowing Vista to run with its full glory and enabling you to play some modern games under DirectX 10 platform also :D

Logitech / Creative 2.1 Speaker @ Rs. 1100 /- + VAT
Any Local UPS @ Rs. 1400 /- + VAT

TAX @ 4% 773 /-
Total Rs. 20098 /-

This intel config for those who wants to stick to Intel only, where as I would vote for AMD config any day, as both processor and motherboard both are far better than this Intel Config.

Those who wants Intel motherboard also, they may opt for Intel G31 or G33 based board, like DG31PR @ Rs. 2900/- + VAT or DG33BR @ Rs. 3300/- + TAX

Do note, there will not be any overclocking with Intel boards, where as XFX 630i will allow over clock and nvidia 7150 video chipset is once again will out perform Intel X3100 any day :D how ever 630i lacks dual channel support

If you have little higher budget for a entertainment PC, then simply replace the CRT display with a 19" Widescreen display, like Dell SE198WFP or View Sonic vx1945wm or LG L194WT, all retails at around Rs. 9.5k + VAT

Where as if you plan to play some games in it also as a normal gamer, then simply change the motherboard for AMD config to M2N MX SE which is Rs. 2300/- + VAT and add a graphics cards such as XFX 8600 GT GDDR-III 256 MB @ Rs. 4400/- + TAX or better ATi Readon HD 3650 at around Rs. 5500/- + VAT

Entertainment / Movies

Budget is upto Rs. 25000/-

Primary its aimed for those who wants a PC for entertainment, a bit of gaming, lot of movies / music, Internet surfing and stuff like that.

AMD Athlon X2 4800+ @ Rs. 3000 /- + VAT
MSI K9AGM V2 / MSI K9AGM-FD (AMD 780G) @ Rs. 4400 /- + VAT
2 GB DDR-II 667 MHz (Transend / Kingstone) @ Rs. 1850 /- + VAT
160 GB SATA-II 7200.10 (WD / Segeate / SAMSUNG) @ Rs. 1825 /- + VAT
DVD RW (IDE - Any brand) @ Rs. 1100 /- + VAT
Any local cabinet with default 450 watts SMPS @ Rs. 1200 /- + VAT
Local Keyboard & mouse @ Rs. 375 /- + VAT
Dell SE198WFP or View Sonic vx1945wm or LG L194WT WideScreen HD TFT @ Rs. 9500 /- + VAT
Creaive / Logitech 2.1 @ Rs. 1100 /- + VAT
Any local UPS @ Rs. 1400 /- + VAT

TAX @ 4% 1030 /-
Total Rs. 26780 /-

Add up to this config as you have little higher budget, like add a vista compatible TV tuner Card from Pinnacle / WinFast @ Rs. 2k + TAX

this is an awesome config along with a gr8 value for money AMD Range processor, also the AMD 780G along with its ATi HD 3200 onboard will allow vista to run with full glory and play full HD (1080p) without any problem.

If you are tight in budget and in need to fit this under Rs. 25k then just change the motherboard to AMD 690G based M2A-VM (DVI) which is Rs. 3100/- + VAT !!

-----------------The Media Center Edition---------------

Purpose, Simply entertainment movies and music and mid range gaming

Budget

Rs. 40k or lower for entertainment movies and music.... and higher Rs. 60k for some heavy gaming + entertainment movies and music...

Rs. 40000/- MCE

Intel Core 2 Duo @ Rs. 7200 /- + VAT
ABiT IP35-E @ Rs. 5200 /- + VAT
XFX 8400 GS @ Rs. 1850 /- + VAT
Pinnacle TV Tuner Kit for Vista @ Rs. 1875 /- + VAT
2 GB DDR-II 667 MHz (Transend / Kingstone) @ Rs. 1850 /- + VAT
250 GB SATA-II 16MB Buffer (WD Cavire 16SE) @ Rs. 2650 /- + VAT
DVD RW (IDE - Any brand) @ Rs. 1100 /- + VAT
Zebronics / iBall good looking cabinet with Zebrmonics Platinum 500 watts @ Rs. 2500 /- + VAT
Logitech / Microsoft Combo (Keyboard + Mouse) @ Rs. 650 /- + VAT
Dell SE198WFP or View Sonic vx1945wm or LG L194WT WideScreen HD TFT @ Rs. 9500 /- + VAT @ Rs. 9500 /- + VAT
Creaive / Logitech 5.1 @ Rs. 3200 /- + VAT
Any local UPS @ Rs. 1400 /- + VAT

TAX @ 4% 1559 /-
Total Rs. 40534 /-

However its bit tricky !!! As if you are more on movies / music / TV then, no point investing high amount on Intel, it would be better opting for AMD 4800 along with MSI K9AGM V2 or K9AGM-FD which would allow you to save some money to think for a 22" large screen such as Dell or LG at around Rs. 16k :D

Budget Rs. 60 - 65k for heavy performance and gaming

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 / E8500 @ Rs. 13300 /- + VAT
ASUS P5K @ Rs. 7500 /- + VAT
XFX 9600 GT / EVGA 9600 GT @ Rs. 10000 /- + VAT (Note, ATi HD 4850 @ Rs. 12.5k would be much better of same budget nvidia)
Pinnacle TV Tuner Kit for Vista @ Rs. 1875 /- + VAT
2 GB DDR-II 667 MHz (Transend / Kingstone) @ Rs. 1850 /- + VAT
250 GB SATA-II 16MB Buffer (WD Cavire 16SE) @ Rs. 2650 /- + VAT
DVD RW (IDE - Any brand) @ Rs. 1100 /- + VAT
Cooler Master 600 watts eXtreme SMPS @ Rs. 3200 /- + VAT
A good looking Cabinet (Zerbonics / iBall) @ Rs. 1500 /- + VAT
Logitech / Microsoft Combo (Keyboard + Mouse) @ Rs. 650 /- + VAT
Dell / LG / View Sonic 22" TFT @ Rs. 16000 /- + VAT
Creaive / Logitech 5.1 @ Rs. 3200 /- + VAT
Any local UPS @ Rs. 1400 /- + VAT

TAX @ 4% 2569 /-
Total Rs. 66794 /-

Note the big difference, as here in this config you are spending more money in your SMPS, reason is the performance power hungry hardware which you have. All though this config will run with Zebronics 500 watts platium, but do note, 45nms are good over clockers so as you OC your card of processor system will struggle for power and will suffer instability.

Tricky part is if thinking performance, then Q9450 is what you buy where as for gaming E8500 is what to look for :D

-----------------------END--------------------

Feel free to discuss your problem and questions, I would be happy to reply !!!

I will keep this post up to date every month or so, as it needs any :D

Thank you.
