good info
but where did u got these prices
some of them are less actually i the market
anyways
under 6.5k cm 690 nvidia edition will be a gud deal

Lynx india has quoted the CM 690 nvidia edition for 6k INR, in fact all the prices are like nearly the same.[the link]

Also there seems to be a updated CM 690 II case, I am not sure whether we're getting the new one or the old one here. The looks are quite similar so its hard to tell [link]

Just get the normal CM690 for like ~RS. 4.5K. It is same as nVidia edition. You can pimp the normal CM690 with colored fans/CFLs if you want..!

I'm in need of a new rig in the budget of 40k. I'll be using it mainly for surfing, movie/music downloads, some gaming once in a while. Oh and possibly converting Video Tapes to DVDs as well. I have it to get it by March end from Nehru Place. I'm also going to give a try at overclocking..
But In 40k, I need to fit in:

OS = Windows 7
CPU/Processor = (After reading 100s of posts, I want to try AMD now. Quad/Triple core preferably. But if they aren't beneficial much then not.)
Motherboard = (No idea..)
Memory/RAM = (4 GB DDR3, yet not sure which brand and all)
Graphic Card/GPU =
Monitor = (20"~22" range since monitor-eye distance is quite short)
Power Supply Unit = (I know how important it is, so don't trust my decision based on my limited knowledge of them.)
Case/Cabinet = (I really want to get something with optimal cooling AND design. Should give atleast a hint of the stuff inside. :p)
CPU Cooling = (Don't think I would need anything special, but just in case.)
Optical Drive = (Just the regular DVD/CD writer..)
Hard Drive = (100GB+ WD/Kingston/Any reliable brand sounds nice)
Keyboard = (No boundaries.)


It's my first time getting my own assembled desktop, wanted to get away from the fixed DELL desktops. I only have a few hints at WHAT to get, so if any one could point me in the right direction atleast.. thanks a LOT in advance..

.:EDIT::.
Just read the 47k Gaming Rig post.. It looks pretty good. But I guess cutting cost in some places and fitting a monitor in there as well.. then I'd grab it.

so lets start
first of all u aren't going to play games seriously/regularly so any low/mid budget graphic card will be ok

graphic card-1>hd 5670 (any brand ):-6k-6.5k
2>hd 4850 " :-7k-7.5k


u asked for amd so,
processor-1>athlon II x4 620:-5kappx(2.6ghz)
2>athlon II x4 630:-6kappx(2.8ghz)
3>athlon II x3 440:-4.5k-5k(3ghz)


mobo-1> MSI 785G– ~5k
-2> MSI 790gx-7.5k


ram-corsair/gskill 2*2gb kit-5k-5.5k


cabinet-1>CM 690 nvidia edition(since u wanna flaunt the hardware inside plus ur cabinet)-6.5k
2>Antec Nine Hundred Mid-Tower-6k-7k

SMPS-minimum required-450w-500w
recommended-500w-550w
any popular brand will do it

rest of the parts can be purchased easily

for cabby its upto you. if u want low cost but sturdy cabby get Zebronics bijli or CM Elite 310. for PSU, as your PC isn't power hungry, a VIP Gold 400W wil do its job. total cost: 1200 for Zebronics + 1600 for VIP = 2800. may get it for less depending on your location.

hi. my cousin wants to buy a gaming computer for 60k or so.. he's saying he prefers to have a core i5 or i7 cpu.. he will use the comp mainly for gaming.. he wants to be able to play latest games like AC2 and S.T.A.L.K.E.R at max graphics level.. and he's not much used to PC gaming, so he also wants an xbox 360 controller.. can u please suggest a good configuration with the above things kept in mind for around 60k-65k..

thanks in advance :smile:

my 2 year old LG DVD writer has gone bad. Its writng about 60% and starts writing Lead out and gives a session fixation error or something. What might be the problem? can we repair it or have to get a new one? ( Have updated firmware also but no use)

if you buy core i5 you will not be able to buy a good graphic card within your budget.
as i said for gaming you should focus on a good graphics card also.

@ Jaskanwar, CM Lite 310 not comes with any PSU. however some retailers bundle a 400W Extreme Power psu with it.

& ram price again went high. 2Gb DDR3 from transcend will cost no more than 3k.
