    Hi

    I need a comp for my office. I have decided to base it on pentium D processor.

    Please help me in deciding the components. It should have onboard graphics, sound, LAN. I want to keep the cost to around 20k. It should be upgradeable in the future. Please give me the details of each component viz. model number, price and from where should I purchase it in Mumbai.

    Dont go for Philips monitor go for Samsang monitor. Its display is good.
    For Optical drive if CD ROM/Writer go for Samsang If DVD Writer go for Sony.
    You won't need Graphic card as INTEL D965RY have Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X3000 which can even run VISTA.

    5K extra wouldn't matter when you are getting a good PC.
