i m planning to upgrade my pc from intel p4 to an AMD Athlon 64 3000+

can u plz specify a good combination for mobo and cpu (64 and 3.0ghz) which will be within 8k budget. mobo should have a pci-e 16x slot :D

ok how about 10k
but basically i m wanting to upgrade for graphics.

Is there a good mobo with a good graphics card(onboard) with Shader 3.0 support???

and will that onboard graphics card be able to play all the recent games even though with some compromise in visual effects?

AMD 3000+ and Asus A8N-VM

Pro. is around 5600 and mobo is around 5200. My dealer is telling me these prices. Dunno abt Mumbai.


i think that is not possible , the processor alone will cost u near 8k

i dont think thats true....amd athlon 3000+ 64 bit[939 socket] costs approx rs.6450,
64 bit [754 socket] one is 5550

for mobo [939 pin one] u can go for msi rs-482 or msi- rs-480m2 available for around 4800/-
although a bit is quite good as a mid-range board...onboard graphics will offer decent gaming performance now and since, it has a Pci-e slot, you can always add another graphics card later on.
future proof!!!
it is even a digit test award gold winner

total cost approx 11000/-


Right off the assembly line
well u can get AMD 939 3000+ and MSIK8NGM2-L for about 10,400 ...MB has 16xpciEx, SATA 2, nvidia 6100/410 chipset, 8 USB2.0 , SATA RAID 0,1,0+1, etc..) ....if u r on a tighter budget go for BIOSTAR T-series TForce 6100-939 or Foxconn 6100K8MA-RS MB which would cost u abt 3500 and processor(3000+ 939) abt total abt 9300.


answering ankur's query...

higher clocked semprons are a rarity in india....
u will rarely get higher than sempron 64 bit 2600+, priced at 3100
it is a 754 pin cpu

amd athlon 2800+ 64 bit 754 pin will cost 5100/-

amd athlon 3000+ 64 bit 754 pin costs 5600/-
while the 939 model will cost 6500/-

Wandering in time...
Well i was just wondering...
is it not better to go for AMD sempron 2500+ rather than AMD sempron 2600+?
coz 2500+ has 256KB L2 cache while 2600+ has only 128KB L2 cache.
i think having a bigger cache scores over the 200Mhz difference b/w the two processors.
wat do u think?

Athlon64 3000+ with MSI k8NGM2 iL. ...... the mobo comes with nForce 430 with onboard 6100 igp .... coupled with atleast 512 MB ram with 64 MB shared should be a pretty decent onboard configuration ....
