    buy cpu cooling system for your processor.


    (Pentium D 805 processor is very good for overclocking.
    intel pentium D 805 processor speed is (133*20)= 2.66Ghz
    most notable feature in this processor is 20x multiplier.
    as multiplier is locked by intel, the way to overclock it is by increasing the clock speed for the front side bus.
    if FSB speed is raised to 200 MHZ it result (200*20)=4.0 Ghz
    labs test results of tom's hardware shows stable operation was possible at (205*20)= 4.1 GHz.
    if overclock this low cost processor can outrun many very high cost processor.)

    Are u sure PD is only 6000 coz even AMD Athlon64 3200+ single core costs more than that !! But with 6000 u cannot get a AMD Dual core processor....coz 3800+ X2 costs almost its double.
    And 8xx PD heat up too much,,so get a good cabinet...
    And if u can,then try to go for PD 9xx series,,its better

    Rest is fine,,,...

    For the graphics card go for 6600 GT PCIe 256 MB.With this graphics card u will be able to play all games...easily!!>>

    I have a Radeon X1600Pro and while I find it's performance really satisfactory I really don't see the need for 512 MB.

    945 mobo seems to be quite cheap. Where did you get it from.? Get the ATI All-In-Wonder card and may be a Antec cabinet and PSU.

    People in this forum don't even know what they are talking of.
    1600Pro A BIG NO!
    6600GT for that budget NO NO NO!
    256mb with Geforce 6600gt is not much of a gain, such a weak card can't even make use of that much more vram

    for around 11k go for Geforce 6800GS 256mb which performs equal to a 6800GT if not better,
    For about 12.5-13k go with 7600GT

    For Rs.18750 go for Asus Geforce 7900GT 256MB from Prime, recommended option

    also, if you really wanna game,go for amd and not intel

    A 7600GT which is much much better than 1600XT, 1600Pro and 6800 and 6600gt and even better than 6800gs can't paly games like FEAR at 1024 with soft shadows on.

    6600gt and 1600Pro/XT maybe fine for med settings at 1024*768 or 800*600 for newer games

    Does the X1600Pro even cost that much? At that price you should get a 7600GT.
    A Pentium D 805 dual core proccy is a very good choice indeed. You don't have to buy AMD to have a good gaming experience.
    If you drop the DVD ROM drive and take 1 GB instead of 2 GB RAM, you could get a good 8ms 17" LCD. It should cost about 12-13k.

    have a look at tomshardware.com and xbitlabs.com/articles, they give higher fps though so you will only get a fraction of that
