    Hi techies……..
    I am a first engineer student in pune. I want to buy a computer…assembeled. My pusposes r intensive gaming, movie watching , music ..in short all that a computer can do. My budget is around 75k. I hav to buy everything that a comp needs. Price indicated below is wot I got from a dealer.
    So lets start from the beginning…..

    1. MOTHERBOARD….
    Asus a8ne coz I m going for amd based system. Does this board has 5.1 output?????. Rs 5000

    2. PROCESSOR
    AMD dual core 3800+ Rs 16500

    3. HARD DRIVE
    160-250 gb hdd at least 7200 rpm n 8 mb buffer sata II Rs 3600-4500

    4. 1 gb ram…512*2……suggest me the brand Rs 5000

    5. liteon dual layer dvd writer Rs 2700

    6. SPEAKERS
    Logitech Z5300 (5.1) Rs 11800… cant resist it. I m an audiophile n it is a blast.

    7. CABINET ( can spend at most 5000 on it)
    550 w smps suggest brand
    vip 1122,g200,g300???( confusion)

    8. MONITER
    17” CRT or TFT ( brand will b viewsonic)
    viewsonic tft 17”…Rs 13500 ( 8 ms response time)
    viewsonic crt 17” flat (rs7000)

    8. MOUSE n KEYBOARD
    G5 mouse Rs 3700 ( wanted to buy mx 518 but dealer told that its production has stopped.)
    LOGITECH gaming keyboard Rs 3500

    9. UPS
    Ne nice ups of abt 3000

    10. Now comes the most difficult part THE GRAPHICS CARD
    I’ll b goin for a pci-e card of abt Rs15000

    Models that I hav in mind r 6600gt,6800gs,6800gt,7600gt for nvidia
    N x800xl,x800xt,x1600 for ati.
    A tv tuner card n fm would b addon in card.
    Personally I hav experienced that in long run…memory does not fall short but model gets older soon. So I wud go for a latest model. I also hav windows vista in my mind

    Recently I hav heard some new terms in graphics card. I m teling my experience abt it

    a. SLI n CROSSFIRE
    I hav hrd this term sli from nvidia in which we can put two graphics card on a motherboard. But sine in sli we hav to put two exactly same card so its useless. In crossfire we can put two cards of different model ( but only of ati as I hav heard …is that true???). so this makes some sense. So does a crossfire motherboard cost too much???? Which r the models n cost???

    b. PPU
    This is sumthing that I hav heard in latest edition of digit. It’s a physics processing unit. It controls the laws of physics in a gameplay. I wanted to know that is it sum kind of other card that is to b placed on mobo or is a feature in graphics card??? If it’s a different card that which slot it uses n wot is the cost of this card.??? I hav also heard that we can force this ppu to a simple graphics card only. So that makes a sence of buying a crossfire compatible mobo so that when I buy a new gpx card … I’ll force the ppu calculations to older graphics card. Moreover can ne 1 give me list of gpx cards that can do pu calculations.

    For the cost purpose…if I take gpx card at 15000 Rs then comp sums up to 85000. I’ll buy the comp in month of june mayb end of june. So this will automatically cum down to 80000 due to reduction in price due to time. Well I cant compromise in processor , speakers,cabinet. The changes can be in mouse,keyboard,( that I will buy a simple 1 now n upgrade later),in crt vs tft fight n in gfx card.
    1 more question do I need a separate sound card for these apeakers to blast or onboard r sufficient enuff??? Wot wud a gud model of 5.1 sound card.


    So guys plz help me to buy my dream machine… lots of thanks in advance.
    HAPPY COMPUTING

    1. U already got the best choice for mobo.. i have it and nothing can be better.....

    2. Processor is again ok.... u can also inestigate about prices of 4200+ and get that if it's in range

    3.Since u said u will be watching movies get Seagate 400Gb SATA barracuda like I have, it will be good asset... dont waste money on sata 2 as of now..... the board supports SATA 2 and we can later add a SATA 2 drive

    4. Corsair if available... it's the best that we're getting right now....
    Corsair value select will cost around 5000

    5. Get BenQ 1640 W

    6. ur choice

    7. Get 450W colorsit it's a good stable PSU 550W will not be required... u are not even getting an SLI board...
    it costs 1500/-
    any cabinet of ur choice
    total ~ 1500+800= 2300

    8. Get a CRT... TFT is still too costly... wait for some time... and get a 24" TFT...
    say 8 months

    9. ur choice

    10. 6800gs is a good choice...
    then again see if u can get sapphire X800GTO2...... nothing can be better

    both SLI and crossfire are not worth the money

    PPU is still not popular... and i dont have much idea..... so i think u better not worry about it now

    i chose features like the motherboard, monitor, hard disk as they stand out well in their own features.

    the motherboard from asus stand out well as a future proof when u r shelling out a good amount. another case with the hard disk is that it has 16 MB cache which is one of the best in its class. the case with the viewsonic monitor is that it has a 2ms response time which gamers can take the maximum of it.

    its upto u to configure only suggestions are provide here. if u want to invest more on u r graphics power you can coz i have only given a GT version, there is also a GTX version available but more expensive ones but. if u do not want that particular case give it a change and see.
