    Samsung 17" LCD 740N - Is this good enuf?? for browsing, watching movies, casual gaming
    400 PSU - Please recommend a good one. will be buying a 7600GT later

    Please let me know approximately wht will be the cost. im from kerala and when i asked the dealer for the price of the dg965ry he said its not available and will have to order form chennai etc. this pc will be used normal usage with some photoshop / video editing /encoding etc

    The processor will cost you roughly 9k+taxes

    For the LCD get the Widescreen model instead. Will cost about 16K.

    intel e6300, well, it is roughly zonal, you'll get it for 7.5 to 8 k in north. 8.5k near maharashtra, 9k in central india, 8.5 k in south n 9.5k in northeast.
    the rates vary for all things.
    going by north, i know these rates.
    e6300 7.5k
    250 GB samsung sp2504c 3.5k (it performs as good if not better than a Seagate)
    Ram
    Transcend 5.5k
    Corsair 6.3k
    Kingston5.8 - 6k
    m/b 7 - 7.6k
    monitor- 5.5k
    for PSU, get one from antec if u dont mind spending. i u need a cabinet, just go for one with at least 500w power supply, from antec. it will cost u anywhere from 4-8k on the amount ur ready to spend. Ther's even a 15 k version. a 400watt prolly wont get it on.
    For the mb, y du wanna go for a G965 chipset. rather take a mobo on p965. Take home a MSI p965 neo for 5.5k . If u r ready to spend a few more, go for Gigabyte GA 965p Dq6. for, 8-9.7k, it is a steal with n overcloking ability unseen in a sub 10k mobo and with even the support for quad core processors(4 core proccy of future, coming both from Intel n AMD)

    well, get a 1000 rs Zebronics cabinet n get a powersafe400 w for 1.5 - 2k or 500w for 2.5k
    n sorry, g965 is available even for 6.5k cause som1 from da forum bought it for that rate about 1 week ago.
    if u hv an old cabnet of ATX form factor just repalce its PSU. u can even use dual PSUs. But that will leave less space for proper ventilation, especially after u add that 7600gt(prolly from XFX).
    1 more thing, though its just an afterthought, gor for Nvidia chipset only for gaming otherwise take an ATI card for other things like a better GUI performance n also a better TV tuner or DV output. I read some1 article who works as a Grfix hardware researcher, n has worked with both the companies.
