asus m2n mx se plus nvidia 6150 nforce 430p am2+ compatible......

Your mobo ie Asus M2N-MX SE PLUS supports

Phenom X4 9450 2.1GHz quad core cpu at max and ( around 5 K but it is obsolete now )

Athlon 64 X2 5600+ 2.9 GHz Dual core cpu at max. ( around 3.5K - obsolete now )

So there is not much to upgrade but if you still want to then get the quad if you do multitask a lot but if your primary concern is gaming then get 5600+ as it will offer 500 MHz speed boost over your current setup.

But I would recommend : going with a new mobo+cpu

Here what you can get around 5-6K :

ECS A785GM-M3 @ 3.2 K + Athlon II X2 240 2.8GHz @ 2.8k :p

hey someone please tell me the price of samsung p2250

It should be around 9.5-10K :p
thanks brother but which is latest and has more relaibility and performance 790gx-g65 or msi 785-e53

Both mobo are good. If you are not planning to add more than 1 Graphic card, MSI 785G-E53 will do fine for you. And its around 1.5k cheaper then the the 790GX-G65.

So the choice is urs !

@ comp@addict, buddy i think u did a mistake in the update. the HD5570 is a 1Gb DDR3 version. there wil be no 512Mb version.

Unlike the 5670 and 5450, we’ll only be seeing a single official configuration of the 5570: 1GB of 900MHz DDR3.

this is from AnandTech review of HD5570.

The price of HD5570 should be around Rs. 4K and then it will be a real VFM and there is no 512MB version of HD5570.

Sapphire HD5570 has two versions one with Display Port and another one with HDMI port :p

Finally !
Bought the new comp... from chandni chowk kolkata.
Did quite a good amount of walking around the place , taking quotes.
The Eastern Logica Guy was very enthusiastic in my purchase, so , after i took the quotes from him, he kept my ph no. The, an hour later , calls up and says that if i get him all the quotes, he will give me the minimum of everything , as per the quotes of all shops.

So ended up Buying the rig from Logica.

Intel WX58BP Workstation Board Rs 10000/- (Took a chance with this one, didnt know anything about it. PPL, stay away from this board if u want to overclock !! has no settings in bios for that. Only 4 RAM slots, So triple channel blundered, can go max to 6 gb, or mebbe 12 if u find 4gb sticks)

4 GB DDR3 Kingston RAM Rs. 5200/-
1 TB SATA Seagate 7200.12 Rs 3950/-
