    Why go for x1600 pro? At that price range 7600GT will be better. Additionally I do not think 17" TFT from samsung will cost only Rs.10500. A month back I enquired here, it was around Rs.15000.

    I personally feel that ATi are better than nVidia. Thats just my personal opinion and it is 512MB rather than 256MB, I know it wont make much of differnce because both cards churn out equal power But Your Opinion is always welcome. :D

    Ya, i am sure it is Rs10500 for 17inch TFT though Sony one is 14000 or more. For Rs 15000 my vendor told me i could get 19inch. But i dont want 19inch.

    Check this out http://www.computerwarehousepricelist.com/
    Deal of Today is Samsung TFT 17inch for 10500 ;)

    There is nothing as ATi is better than nVidia. ATi has more drawbacks to be precise, but what finally matters is the better card.

    512mb = 256mb if you can only spend 15k on a graphic card.

    get a crt then.

    you are not gaming, are you?

    Both DG965WH and Asus P5B-VM have onboard graphics (Intel G965 Chipset). The drivers are not upto the mark though...

    Any Ideas on Price of MOBO and Graphic Cards ?
    __________
    LOL

    P5B-VM means Socket 775 (P5), Intel G965 chipset (codenamed Broadwater), with onboard video and microATX form factor.

    That's How ASUS Names it MOBO :D.

    Well i think IntelĀ® Desktop Board DG965WH is the best choice till now

    Here are Cons in Intel DG965RY (Rogers City; Classic Series)

    1. no RAID
    2. no S/PDIF
    3. STAC9227 5.1 Ch. HD audi
    Internation Retail Price - 124.99$

    Whereas has Intel DG965WH (Westchester; Media Series)

    1. RAID 0/1/10/5
    2. STAC9271D 7.1 Ch. HD audio
    3. optical S/PDIF out. Supports Intel Viiv Technology.
    Internation Retail Price - 128.99$


    As for P5B-VM

    1. no RAID
    2. no S/PDIF (need an optional bracket)
    3. AD1988 7.1 Ch. HD audio
    Internation Retail Price - 132.99$

    I really think Intel DG965WH is the best till now but dunno if it is available in India. Shall call the Intel Office in my City the day i gonna buy though :D
