    Having surveyed the market in Pune, I have decided to go with the following configuration for a new PC:

    Processor & Motherboard: "P4 2.8 GHz 865 GBF"
    RAM : 512 MB DDR RAM @ 400 MHz
    Hard Disk: Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM 80 GB IDE Interface
    Combo Drive: Recommend Brand ?
    Pen Drive : Recommend Brand (UMax?), capacity

    Any idea of the ongoing price I should be paying for these ?

    Thank you for your response(s).

    In the meantime, I also looked up AMD info and the alternative configuration I could think of was:

    Config 1:
    Processor: Athlon 64 FX-53
    Motherboard: Asus A8V Deluxe

    Config 2:
    Processor: Athlon 64 3800+
    Motherboard: Asus K8V

    Configuration for other components remains the same.
    What should I consider when i choose amongst the above two w.r.t. AMD in mind ?

    Also, I've heard about heating problems with AMD though not sure how much weight they carry especially in non-AC environments. Any comments ?

    The fx config will obviously be costly ........

    One more thing is that the K8V is a socket 754 mobo and the 3800+ is a socket 939 proccy......so thats not possible. AMd 64 3400+ shud do the trick with the K8V.
