    At that budget of 28k, AMD is best for you.

    AMD Athlon II X4 620 @ 5.5k OR Phenom II X2 545 @ 4.8k OR Athlon II X2 240 @ 3k
    ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO @ 6.7k OR http://asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=vhi75jnBeZVzizh0
    Get the second option as you are building an HTPC anyway. If not, then the first one is good as later you can upgrade your rig easily due to 2xGFX card slots and 4xRAM slots.

    2x2GB DDR3 @ 4.5k
    Corsair CX400W @ 3.2k
    Get a good wireless kbd plus mouse like Logitech or Microsoft.
    CM Elite 330 or get a smaller HTPC case @ 2k
    1TB WD Green @ 4k.

    Dude, Athlon II X4 620 @ 5.5k is the way to go as I already suggested! The mobo which I already suggested can handle even Crysis @ low settings through IGP. No need for a separate card. If you want a rig @ 28k which can game at high settings on your 32" LCD, then I'm sorry to say that you will have to up your budget.

    Palit GTX260 SONIC @ 10-11k
    Corsair VX450W @ 4k
    CM-690 @ 4.5k

    There you go, no worries at all. :)

    Also, the Phenom II X3 720BE is a tri core and @ 7.5k. Better buy the proccys suggested earlier as in gaming, the Phenom II X2 550 will serve you best today @ 3.1 GHz, but in the future, quad core will serve you better, so Athlon II X4 620.

    the only ddr3+quad core config possible for 28k budget is athlon ii x4 config given by Krow. go for it. x3 720 is good but an extra core helps a lot in the future.

    Hmmm... The ASUS mobo is solid, don't worry. Else, look for Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-US2H @ 7k or MSI 790GX - G65 @ 7.2k.

    For that rig, IF you want to game at higher res, then get a GPU. Your IGP can let you game at lower res anyway. It's no point getting a 4770/9600GT now. Let nvidia's new cards hit the market and you will get these cards at dirt cheap rates. If you still want to buy a good GPU, then buy the GTS250 512MB GDDR3. Its for 7.1k as opposed to the 4770 for 6.6k-7.4k. GTS250 is much better for gaming than 4770.

    If you are buying a GPU, then get the VX450W, or else go for the Corsair CX400W @ 3.2k or Gigabyte 460W @ 2.5k or Tagan TG-500-U37 @ 3.2k or Cooler Master REAL Power Pro 460W @ 3.5k.

    I am looking to rebuild my rig as it is currently outdated or getting to be so. The above config suites me fine, however I need help in the fact I have a PCI interface from M-Audio. Its a sound card. I will need a mobo which supports it. Any ideas ?

    thanks in advance!

    Would suggest you change the mobo to... Gigabyte GA-MA785GPMT-UD2H or Biostar one!

    bro, all mobo have got PCI interface, and if you have M-Audio sound card you really got a good sound card with you.

    @arnab, why do you want a quad core for downloading for so long better get a dual core with good power efficiency and a good energy saving board. and HD4670 or a similar card is way to go for HD playback. And yep a good cabinet with good cooling options. coolermaster elite, zebronics reaper/rage are some good cabinets.

    reaper will be better than antibiotic IMO.

    give snapshot of ports, but you will need to buy a converting cable. Or look for good gfx card which has proper output ports for you. BTW your LCD has got HDMI or not ??

    at that budget, I would recommend core i5.

    btw, for surfing+downloading+mid gaming, wouldn't Athlon II X4 630 do the job well?
