Building a budget CPU for my in-laws for less than 15k (only CPU, 15k is max)... Have chosen the following components
1. AMD Athlon II X2 250 - 3.6k
2. Gigabyte 785G based motherboard (if not available locally, ASUS 780G based motherboard) - 4.5k
3. 2GB DDR2-800 MHz RAM - 1.9k
4. 250GB SATA HDD - 1.95k
5. DVD Writer - 1.1k
6. Cabinet+PSU - 1.1k

Total:14.15k

Please give suggestions for any improvement

Athlon II X2 240 @ 3k. 250 is not worth the extra money you pay, for a small rise in clock. Use the money you save to get DDR3 RAM. Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H @ 5.5k and 2GB DDR3 Kingston @ 2.4k. This will prevent you a lot of headache later. I would suggest you get CM Elite 310 with 400W generic PSU.

For motherboard, have a look @ MSI 785GM-E51 @ 4.6k. Its also a good DDR3 board. A cheaper alternative to the Gigabyte one.

Please confirm X2 240 is AM3 processor - http://www.deltapage.com/ seems to indicate it as AM2 processor and I think AM2 proccy will not fit AM3 mobos... Also, I want to know if MSI boards are reliable - I usually prefer ASUS or Gigabyte motherboards

Revised Build:
1. AMD Athlon II X2 240 - 3k
2. MSI 785GM-E51 - 4.6k
3. 2GB DDR3-1333 MHz RAM - 2.65k
4. 250GB SATA HDD - 1.95k
5. DVD Writer - 1.1k
6. Cabinet+PSU - 1.1k

Total:14.4k

I personally assembled a system with Athlon II X2 240 and MSI 785GM-E65 (not E51) with DDR3. It is an AM3 processor and will be usable with all AM2+ boards as well as AMD has backward compatibility in these chipsets. The config looks fine now. Make the HDD 500GB WD Blue/ Seagate 7200.12 @ 2.4k Its still in your budget and better VFM. MSI boards are as reliable as ASUS or Gigabyte. Nothing to worry about that way.

@Krow and @asigh- yeah guys installed now the forum looks damn cool and fills my screen.
Did you install the Kirsch theme too? With this expanded forum look, along with the Kirsch, you will notice how much better and faster the forum is. If only the great 9.9 media realised that it is not necessary to outsource forum coding to a :noob: company, when those in house can do it much better. :cry:
