Hey Guys,

I have a P4(3Ghz),512MB RAM & Intel D915 Motherboard
I'm Thinking of upgrading my PC to
A Core 2 Duo Processor and a 2GB RAM.
Now, Im confused about selecting the Motherboard and Graphics Card.

My Budget can't exceed 10k.
Can you provide your options???
I want my PC to run Vista(with all features) and play games decently..

XFX MG63Mi7159
Intel C2D E2180
Transcend 2GB 800Mhz RAM
ASUS 8600GT PCI Express

This will cost you around 10K. You can OC this proccy on this mobo to upto 3 Ghz (with stock cooling, no voltage increment), though maybe you should stay safe and OC it upto 2.6 Ghz. And Vista will have no problems with this setup.

Note: This mobo supports only single channel RAM. And you can't use long gfx cards with this board.

Never heard of Dynite :-|
And without a gfx card, Vista will be strained, and gaming on Vista will be impossible.
