BTW from which city, you have planned to make the purchase ??

Are you open to buy online ??

Get this config.

Component | Make | Price Processor |AMD Phenom II x4 840|4800
Motherboard |Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-US2H|3400
RAM |G.Skill F3-10666CL9S-2GBNQ|1100
PSU |FSP Saga II 500W|2000
Case |CM Elite 310|1500
| Total |11300

If your budget can permit then get Gigabyte GA-880GA-UD3H (rev. 3.1) @ INR 5400. Much futureproof than the above mentioned.

Nicely summed up. Availability of FSP Saga might be an issue though.

^^ It is a big issue.. I think Corsair CX400 @2.5K will be a nice replacement.. :)
And if u get FSP Saga by any chance, it will be hard to get it at 2K.

Thanks a lot for your replies guys.
I am from Nanded, Maharashtra. (Though its a second most important city in Marathwada region, we are far behind in terms of such tech age.)
And yes, I dont want to buy online.

I am afraid I would get only AMD here from what you have suggested.
But still then I have a very bad experience with AMD.
My HP DV6 1211AX laptop has died in just (less than) 2 years.


I don't need any fancy looking case/cabinet.
And apart from Dynate, we have only Kingston and Transcend RAMs here.

The RAMs you mentioned are reliable. And AMD is also good. Sorry to know about your laptop, but what actually happened?

It was overheating a lot.
It worked without any problem for first year, then onwards it started to trouble me.
Agar 15 minutes bhi CS-condition zero khelo to hang hokar shutdown ho jata tha.

Then recently I had given it for repairing at HP's official service center, but they said that its a motherboard problem and I need to replace it.
The new motherboard would cost me atleast 15 to 20,000

It was atleast working for 2-3 hours when I used to surf internet or doing work with MS-Office.
but jab se service centers se aaya hai tab se on bhi nahi ho raha hai :(

My friend's Acer laptop with AMD CPU is working great at its 4th year. You can get AMD without any fear, but yeah, that's a bad experience.

old AMD processors are famous for heating & then (even now) HP have some serious heating issue cause of bad ventilation.

current AMD processors with stock cooler stays under 60degree C even under load.

There's nothing fancy about the cabby which we have suggested. If not then any local Cabinets can also be used, but don't use the local PSU provided along with it.

Regarding RAM's you can opt for Kingston, which is better among what you listed.

Happy Computing & sorry about your laptop.

Cheap laptop with cheap ventilation and cheap manufacturing material. Manufacturer's mistake, not AMD's. I have similar problem with my Acer laptop with Intel Core 2 Duo. Yet again Acer's mistake, not Intel's. Desktop is a different game altogether.

IMO if its not under warranty or you are not going to fix it in future for that price from HP; then take that to a local repairer and see what they say.

If possible then you can buy the above from Lamington Road, Mumbai. You can get the best price out of this.

Mumbai is 600kms from Nanded.
And bro, Mumbaise lene k baad agar kuchh problem aaya to mujhe fir se Mumbaiko jana padega. :(

I've talked to one local dealer, he said he can order this config for me from other city like hyderabad, pune etc.
Isme iss local dealerka kya fayda hai ?
Should I trust him ?

If I was in your place, this is what I would have done. First go to the local guy and ask for the estmated prices which he is going to charge to you after bringing for you from other cities, then compare with online prices and shipping charges plus octroi. See which one is more economical and go for it. :D

^^ exactly. Check with local resellers, whether they can procure everything under the budget. Otherwise its your call.

This brings me to one more aspect of the Indian Condition, still remote areas like these lack the reach of technology and we brag about IT Revolution in the country. Closest big city is Nagpur for him which is 350km away from his place. I mean Come on. :(

Arre bhai, we are not from any remote area.
Nanded is the second largest and important city after Aurangabad in Maharashtra's Marathwada region.
Its not that these gadgets are not available here, but yes, we don't have much choices.

As I said earlier, you can easily get Kingston and Transcend RAMs here, but if you ask for G.Skill RAMs then the dealer would ask, "ye g.skill kya hai ?"
The same thing with other gadgets too.
For e.g. you would get Transcend MP3 player or I-pod shuffle here, but they don't have any idea about other brands.


But yes, you can imagine if this is the scene in city like ours, then what about actual remote areas ?
Where is the IT revolution ?

It is true what you said.

But the real problem is there are very few buyers of such highend products in some cities and so dealers avoid those brands / products / models. They don't want dead stock! na!!
