    Might be hard to assemble one as the readily available processors/motherboards are not very cheap... These sub-10k machines use older processors (may be secondhand or refurbished) which is why the cost is so less...

    Also, do you want a color monitor or is 14" mono monitor enough? 15"color costs 4k approx whereas 14" mono will cost a bit less...

    for 10k, u won't be able to get an intel or AMD system, atleast without monitor, 12k is minimum as fasr as i know

    try buying a 2nd hand computer

    u can also look for VIA C3 processor on Mercury motherboard, they come as bundle, with 256 MB RAM, onboard gfx is enough for his needs, & so is the onboard Audio, u can run windows XP SP2 properly on it, & in the future upgrade to 512 MB RAM, when he got the money

    a generic keyboard & mouse combo will cost atleast Rs 600, speakers are subjective, & a Samsung 15" Monitor can be baught for Rs 3,500 approx.

    LAN is onboard, add a modem if u require one, a 80 GB HD will cost about Rs 2,500, so U see, no matter how much u try U will always go over 10k, atleast 12k is required

    In such a case I think buying a second hand system will be the better choice.

    No selling deals directly or indirectly via forums or even by PM. Make sure you dont repeat it again.

    As for a 10k PC, CHIP had an article on this last year, where in they successfully managed to build a 10k PC. But the components they used wont be available in most parts of the country. Particularly the via c3 processor bundled with the Gigabyte motherboard. Best option wod be to get a new basic system from Intel/AMd and get a second hand monitor. I dont think getting a complete second hand PC wod be anywhere close to being reliable. A second hand 15" monitor wod cost 2k and wont be hard to find. The cpu components and input devices can be manager within the 8-9k range.
