Yup, It should suffice for most games with their all glory except crysis :p

Actually you can compare HD5570 gfx cards performance with GTX260 or HD4870 and on some games it performed close ( or even passed ) to HD4890 and GTX 275. So It's not a bad buy at all :p

On power consumption front It consumes 20-30 watts less than GTX 260. So you can go for it :p

^Oh yeah? Sh*t! Then I'll buy HD6850 :D. Yeah, ye'r right. What's so-called "big" difference between DX10 or DX9 and DX11, right? BTW, I'm not into HD-gamin'. So, GF9800GTX+ should do it's job till Crysis 2.

Right off the assembly line
AMD Athlon II X2 240: 3k
Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-US2H: 5.5k
Transcend 2x2Gb DDR3 1333MHz ram: 5.5k
Western Digital 500Gb sata2 HDD: 2.5k

the onboard 785G should be good enough for casual gaming.


Thank you for your prompt reply :doublethumb:.
I upgraded my system with the following hardware this weekend.
AMD Athlon II X2 250 3.01GHz...(240 was not available)
+
Asus m2n68-am se2
= 5000
WD 320Gb SATA = 1850
2X2GB 800 mhz Kingston Ram = 3850 ..(wanted to put 1066mhz ram...but again availability was a problem...and availability of my time was another problem so had to settle for 800 mhz)

Which one is better Transcend or Kingston for buying a RAM?

I installed Windows 7 and system is running smoothly :)).

Review:

I must say this Asus mother board is good ;-).

@ abhi1301 - Get a gfx like Powercolor HD4350 512MB around Rs. 2K

@ sakumar79 - Gigabyte's 785 mobos are not that cheap - Can you mention the model name ??

@ xtremevicky709 - Get Biostar 785G mobo ( with DDR2 Support ) around 3.4K.
Get Athlon II X4 620 around 5K.
Get 2x 1 GB Ram around 2K.

@ raj_v1982 - CM's 2nd generation 600W psu are somewhat OK. But if you can change your christmas gift then get Corsair VX450W :p Here's a review :

@ rulerofthecity - Quality wise both ram are good but transcend has lower latency compared to Kingston in it's value 800 Mhz segment.

among Transcend and Kingston, get whichever is cheaper. I have used both and they lasted really really long.

Hi. I am buying 5 new PCs for starting an internet cafe in my hometown. There is too much power cut here so i was considering an atom/ion based solution so that i get more backup from inverter-battery system.

i was searching the internet and found Dell inspiron Zino desktop. The config is

Intel atom processor single-core 1.6 ghz
1 gb ram
160 gb harddisk
kb+mouse
dvd writer
dell 17 inch lcd monitor

the total cost is rs. 16000 including taxes.

Is this config all right? Are there any other options available? If i could get an ion based system or a dual core atom processor for slightly higher price then it would be great.

but if u r getting atom based CPU - if the customers uses multi tasking then it ll be problem get low power systems based on the calculation
