    Well friends I am upgrading an old PC and I am pretty tight on the budget:cry:

    Will need the thee within Rs 6500.

    Processor:
    I have no preference or prejudices for either AMD or INTEL. Anything which is better bang for bucks will do.

    Motherboard:
    Must have decent inbuilt graphics(as far as possible). Of course I have no plans for a GPU in the near future.

    RAM:
    Will buy DDR2 with the remaining money.

    Budget is pretty low... give your best bet. And THANKS A LOT in advance.

    If you wont be upgrading for next five years i suggest you go the intel way and get the core i5 750 along with a good p55 platform.Its much more future proof than amd right now.At 40k for total budget you can easily investin the i5.

    Yea, the i5+P55 offers much more future proof status then the AMD X4.

    You could go with..
    Core i5-750 2.66Ghz - 10150
    Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD2 - 7350 (corrected as below)
    GPU : Powercolor HD4890 1GB DDR5 - 11890
    2 X 2GB DDR3 1333 - Kingston 4 GB - 4600 (for dual-channel)
    HDD : Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 - 500GB SATA - 2371
    PSU : Tagan BZ500(modular) - 4463
    Chassis : Coolermaster Elite 335 - 2132

    ---------------------------------------------------
    Total: 42956

    You can play around with the GPU and Chassis and HDD to tweak prices.

    @ asigh

    hi buddy

    The asus p7p55d-evo is 7.3k? Is it true?
    I thought its well over 12k.
    Asus is yet to launch a p55 board i.e an le model which should be around 6-7k.
