    Hi Guys,
    Im planning on buying a new system.Need help with deciding the system config.I currently have a compaq with an AMD athlon 1.3ghz.Shud i go for an AMD 64 bit or Intel Pentium D or Pentium 4.If so which one?Also mention the mobo model and the video card.Is ATI x800 better than nvidia 6600GT?I usually play games,listen to music and am planning to encode movies to Divx with the new system.Ans how abt the speakers 2.1/5.1.Planning on Altec Lansing MX5021 but they r on the xpensive side.Any other worthy alternatives?My budget is around 50K.Your suggestion wud be highly appreciated.

    I will suggest the following config:-

    AMD Athlon 64 3220+
    Asus A8N-E
    512*2 Transcend Ram
    160 GB Hitachi Sata II
    Xfx geforce 6600gt 256mb

    Now the speakers. If u like to watch movies and play games than go for 5.1 and if u r a music fan than go for 2.1

    Mx5021 jst rocks for music. It is awsome.
    In 5.1 u can go for Altec Lansing 5100 or vs3151r or Logitech Z-5300.

    well if price is no factor i suggest u go for x800xt which is pci-e and crossfire ready and if u want a nvidia then a 7600 gs maybe

    certainly the x800 is better than a 6600 gt but the 6600 is certainly bang for the buck with impressive performance
