    no its not possible to play ALL games on it and not require
    a gfx card.

    as for the mobo.go for the ASUS K8V .costs 7k
    excellent mobo

    segate 40gb 7200rpm shud be arnd 2.5k or 3k

    kingston value 256mb is 2200-2300

    A64 2800+ is 7k

    liteon DVD writer(16x) is 5.75 k

    total here is arnd 26k
    go for a 17 inch monitor that costs 5k .dunno exactly wich one.
    u add rest of the stuff

    liteon DVD writer is 5.75 k

    so the whole thing is abt 31k.

    u need to xtend ur budget dude

    or just go for an athlon XP

    well its for a good friend of mine... and he can extend the budget to around 35k or even 37k..... so getting a graphics card and a dvd writer won`t bea problem..
    also suggest some good speakers 4.1 or 6.1... for surround sound.... and stuff..... if possible please do suggest a good speaker set and also give the price... which will be really helpful... :)

    what about creative inspire 4.1 4000rs,
    but personally i'll suggest u PHILIPS don't know model name,2.1 2100rs, 2.1 3200rs(*model), 4.1 5800rs(*model)
    or can go for altech lansing 2.1 4800rs(*model),
    price might be diffrent depending on ur city and model no,
    these price r here in doon so pls ,
    don't really think u can afford 4.1 of altech more then that.
    for more u can check on digit old issue, on PDF or if u have the mag.

    oh ok...
    well my friend was thinking of buying a music system and i told him to buy a good sound card and also a good set of 4.1 speakers... so he would be spending less than when he would buy a new music system...
    i would definately go for the config suggested by nikilesh.. thanks dude..
    but i have heard that liteon dvd drives got a problem..some kind don`t remember what..read it somewhere.. and that benq drives the benq 2200 are the best in the market right now...
    do enlighten me on that.. too.. if possible..

    def Liteon DVD drives are problematic. Go for a Pioneer 16X DVD writer. I think they are the same price as the Literon and performance is much better. Altho ur friend might wanna hold onto the DVD writer for a while till the prices for a Dual Layer DVD writer drops. DL DVD writers are gonna be the norm...

    With that mobo means hes not gonna wait for the PCI-E express. So gettin a graphics card might be better for now. Wait for the prices to drop on the DL DVD writers next year and get them....

    if he could wait he would have waited ... but the dude needs it and so do i, can make him download stuff for me...hehehehehhehehehe...
    he can wait for a graphics card but not for a dvd-writer... cause there`s loads of writing to do..:)..
    doesn`t get time so won`t be playing loads of games.... so definately can wait till end of december or jan for a graphics card..
    and also i would be upgrading my pc next year anways.. so i`ll be the one getting all the good and expensive and kick-ass stuf.. like DL writers(hopefully blu ray) ;)... pci-express mobos.. etc etc...

    oh another question..
    i`m giving my hdd to my friend which already has winxp installed on it.. now how do i solve the driver problems... if there are any..

    hmmmm......

    lit on undoubtedly makes the best cd writers.

    but when it comes to DVD-writers they r a lil biased towards DVD+R discs.

    yes BenQ would be the best option. and also i dont think the 3000+will come into ur budget

    oh i read in the november issue of digit.. about dl dvd writers... pioneer dl layered dvd writer for only 6300... would definately go for that...
    ya even i think of going down to the 2800 XP. .. but the biggest problem is that of EMi..
    can anyone give me dealer names who sell custom pc.. with EMi.. cause untill and unless there is no EMI then getting the required pc would be diffuicult. and oh i live in Mumbai..
