    -intel processor 2.8HT is no more available in the market now if i m not wrng..u can go for Intel P4-LGA 2.8GHz 533MHz,1MB,Non-HT-4900rs,or better Intel - HT P4-LGA 3.0GHz 800MHz,2MB,LGA-HT-8050rs.
    -512 DDR2 667Mhz arnd 3k may b less.
    -945G with onboard GPU-ARND 6K,or 945P widout Onboard GPU..this shud b a better option if u plannin 2 go for a dedicated GPU.
    -i wont suggest u COMBO drive...instead get a seperate DVD-ROM & CD-RW.(SONY,LITEON)
    -300W SMPS is not at all enough..better get a 400w atleast,Powersafe 1.4k,antec arnd 3k.
    -Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 793S 17"-6.4K
    -go for SATA instead of that barricuda.price diff is marginal.Seagate SATA 160GB 3.8k.
    -LOGITECH KB & Optical mouse .8k
    -Altec Lansing ATP3 2.1-2.8k
    -Atleast 600va UPS...800va will b gr8..betta backup.
    -i'll suggest u to go for 6600nu instead of 6200.

    @ashfame...

    Why the inclination towards Intel huh?? For gaming & other purposes also, AMD processors have shown far better results...

    As for Mid Range, check out the following Config & enquire about the rates, I am sure it shall be within 35 Ks

    Processor: AMD 3200+/3000+
    MotherBoard: ASUS A8N VM / ASUS A8R MVP
    MSI RS 482 IL (With on-board GFX solution *cheaper*)
    MSI K8N
    RAM 512 or 2*512 Corsair/ Transcend/ Hynix(less preferable)
    CD-RW / DVD ROM (Preferable to go in for 2 separate ones): SONY/ Liteon
    HDD: SATA Seagate 80GB/ 160 GB
    GFX: NVedia 6600 256 MB
    Monitor: LG/ Samsung
    Keyboard/ Mouse: Logitech
    SMPS: 400 W Powersafe
    Cabinet: Intex/ i-Ball
    UPS: 600 VA powercom
    Speakers: 2.1 Logitech

    The above config in Nagpur comes out to around 38 Ks...The rates shall be far lesser in a place like Mumbai & the package should come within 35000.

    Peace

    HK

    All right, i have decided to buy the following:
    1. Processor: P4 HT 3.0Ghz (1MB, 800Mhz FSB, Socket478 )
    >>What Socket 478 means?<<
    >>Anyone who can quote its price for it in delhi !<<
    2. Intel Mobo (onboard sound, LAN card & a pci-e 16x slot & DDR2 ram compilant)
    >>Suggest one compatible with above processor<<
    3. Samsung SyncMaster 793S 17" CRT
    4. Keyboard & Mouse (Logitech)
    5. nVidia 6600 graphics card (pci-e 16x)
    >>Whats the difference in it & its gt variant?<<
    >>Also the price difference?<<
    6. HDD 7200rpm 120-160GB
    >>Suggest the cheapest one !<<
    7. FDD
    8. DDR2 Ram (1x512)
    >>Which brand is the best?<<
    9. Dual Layer DVD writer
    >>Suggest the cheapest one !<<
    10. Cabinet with 400W SMPS
    >>Cheapest<<
    11. UPS 800VA
    >>Which brand is the best?<<

    Components that i have quoted for being cheapest should also be satisfactory reliable!!

    That's a prescott and its known for its thermal problems. The stock heat sink fan sounds like Su-30's thrust vectored engines. I have a 2.8E and feel that i'm working near a runway :-(

    Hmm ... the p4 stock cooler is quite noisy .. but thats the case only when it reached 4k's rpm ... if u keep it around 3.5k's the sound is barely audible .... better case cooling will surely make this possible ...

    Wht about this:
    Intel Pentium D 805 Dual Core Processor (2.66 GHz, 2MB, 533MHz FSB, Socket 775)
    Also suggest a mobo for it.
    (mobo with onboard lan card & sound card & ddr2 compliant ram)
    Pl also explain fsb details.

    And will the above processor work on a mobo with 1066 Mhz fsb. (Intel D945GNTLKR Motherboard)
    Does it has a pci-e 16x slot for nvidia 6600 & support for ddr2 ram sticks.
    is there any variant of above processor for 1066Mhz fsb.
    Urgent!!
