    Asus P5LD2-VMSE Rs. 5000
    Gigabyte GA-945-MRZ Rs. 4500
    Intel D965RY Rs. 7200

    The first 2 are based on the 945 chipset and are not recommended unless you really can't afford the third mobo based on the 965 chipset.

    Cost is about Rs. 7000.
    Onboard graphics are the same as any 965 mobo: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3000.
