    My friend wants me to suggest him a good PC config for his requirements.
    He is a bit leaned towards intel . so plz , suggest the better and also the best among the intel .

    budget - 35k-40k including everything and even a ups.

    he basically wants the pc for his project work in his engineering course which will need no more that a 5yr. old PC . all the same , he wants to play a bit of games and have good music. and watch movies and hear songs that's all .


    thank you...

    Get a dual core based comp with 945 chipset and it should suffice more than he requires.

    Typically, you should wait until after Vista releases. At least that's what I'm doing. Prices will come down a fair bit once Vista releases.

    Two reasons. One, prices are cheaper after christmas, because retailers want to get rid of their merchandise. Two, once vista hits the market, and its requirements are known for certain, manufacturers can produce what is required and lower prices.

    I think it is better to wait for one month. Because Intel's Conroe (Core 2 Duo) has hit the market. within a month it will be available from your local dealer and it outperforms a similar AMD X2.
    At present I think, this is a good configuration - you can sacrifice the graphics card with a lower priced one to fit in your budget.

    DUAL Core AMD X2 - 3800 939 Socket 8400
    ASUS A8N-SLI M/B 6600
    1 GB DDR 400 5500
    160 GB Serial ATA 3000
    256 MB GF 7600 GX DDR3 7300
    Liteon 16x DVD 2200
    I-BALL BENZ Cabinet 1600
    Samtron 17" Flat 793DF 6400
    Logitech Mouse & MM Keyboard 1000
    APC 650VA 2900
    Creative 2.1 speakers 2000
    Total 47000
