    I am looking for the following components
    > Phenom II X3 720
    > 2gb ddr2 ram

    I need to know a few things.
    > How is the processor?
    > I need a mainboard with 4ram slots with onboard graphics.
    > I will buy a graphics card 2-3 monthes later. My budget for the graphics card is 10K.



    > Please suggest a suitable MAINBOARD for the processor.
    > Please suggest me a GRAPHICS CARD AND a SMPS to power the rig.

    Looking forward for your suggestions and help.

    Thanks a lot myhotdog and ssk_the_gr8 for your valuable information.



    I have 20K for the processor, mainboard, ram and smps. Considering the processor is around 7.5K, I can go for 780G boards. Are gigabyte boards reliable? I have heard issues with MSI and have decided to stay away from them.



    >> Can anyone provide me the exact cost of RAM, Mainboard and SMPS please?????
    >> Is there anyone from Kolkata who can help me with information about shops????

    Latest Prices of computer components

    you need to check which gfx card you wanna buy, because thats what will decide which PSU u should buy, gfx card these days eat more power than just the proccy itself.

    as per current gfx card priced 10K I will say get corsair VX550 or zebronics pro 600W, or some PSU of that caliber. VX550 costs 5.8K and zebby one costs around 4.5K

    coming on to RAM 2GB DDR2 stick costs 1K from kingston/transcend.
    corsair ones are costly and come in around 1.8K or so, bundle of 4GB costing over 3K
    a single chip 2GB DDR3 from transcend costs 2K

    soon 785G based new AM3 boards will be released, AM3 ones run DDR3 RAM only, so a wait for a month more is what I will suggest. otherwise there is AMD 770 chipset based mobos from MSI and gigabyte which are withing your price range.

    @arsenalfan, Go for GlacialPower GL650AA. This one's a 650W PSU available for same price (order at lynx-india). It will be easier for you if you want to upgrade to a high end GPU like HD4890 or GTX275.

    Thanks for all your help. Today I purchased the following components from Starcomp @ chandni chowk, Kolkata


    1. Phenom II x4 940 - Rs.9700
    2. Gigabyte Ma78gm-us2h - Rs.4200
    3. Kingston 2GB 800Mhz - Rs.1175
    4. Asus 22X dvd-rw - Rs.1400
    5. Philips Stereo Speaker - Rs.550
    6. Zebronics 500W Platinum SMPS
    7. Microtek UPS


    Dont have the bill right now. So cant post the prices of the ups and the smps.

    I found Starcomp to be cheaper than Vedant this time. For example
    x4 940 was quoted @vedant rs.9800/-
    board was quoted @ vedant rs.4350/-


    Thanks again for your valuable suggestions.

    HD 4890 1GB DDR5 is not 8k, it's around 13k

    my pick would be GTS250 1GB.

    Thanks for your quick reply. I will keep that in mind. Will my psu be able to handle the load? A friend today said that a 500w is not enough for mid-to-high range cards.


    Actually I saw the price of HD 4890 on ITWARES.COM. I saw the price around 9.4K. That's why I posted here.

    that should be the price of HD4870. maybe a typo error. Zeb 500W Platinum should be able to hold GTS250 easily.
