    hey all you guys, i am going to upgrade my pc and literally buy a new one....so please suggest me some good specs...these things should be a must....


    1GB RAM
    a 17" TFT monitor
    a real fast processor for gaming...
    PCI-e architecture motherboard
    256MB graphics card pci-e(of course)...i want to do some heavy gaming like Unreal Tournament 2004 and the future UT2007

    now for the doubtful part....should i go for a AMD based or Intel based computer...i am really avid gamer and also create flash animations ...i will move on to 3D modelling once a new machine comes.....and i have heard that amd is good for gaming and intel for animations and like....so please suggest for what should i go........

    also, the computer must be Vista-compatible....

    the budget should not exceed 25000 at all....i am buying it after about two months, so you can give some future suggestions......i am asking you about the specs early as i have to start researching from now....

    one more thing, it should be comfortable with new games and softwares for about 2 years....

    thanks in advane :D

    If the 17" TFT alone takes up more than half your budget, how do you expect to be able to afford all this in 25k? You need to increase your budget by atleast 20k.

    Lets Try things out...
    Suppose u have 35Ks right...
    Consider SamsungS TFT monitor 17" - 713N--> 13500
    512*2(400) around----. 4500
    ASUS P5Rd2 + Intel 3.0 Ghz HT 2 mb ---> 12000
    _______________________________________
    This Makes 30000RS...
    NOw DVD writer----> 3000Rs....
    And 2000 for good CAbinet with 450 watt SMPS..
    _______________________________________
    Complete 35000 Rs
    Wait for graphic card prizes will be down sooner...
    Till then the mobo has good Inbuilt ATi X 300 GPu...
    I guess theres no need of 5.1 speakers
    i mean these stuff r not one time investmest..
    U can later add 5.1
    Also DVD With Lightscribe wont fit into ur budget u will need 3ks more for this...
    mobo supports 6 channel...

    Let us see

    Samsung syncmaster 793 DF ~6400
    AMD Athlon 64 3200+ ~8000
    1 Gb Hynix ram ~4000
    80Gb HDD ~2000
    KB+Mouse+cabinet ~2000

    we got only 3000 left for the mobo... so u see the problem here dont you...
    now if we get 512 Mb ram and say u can add 512 Later...
    then we got 5000 left for board which can get u a decent board with onboard graphics and PCI-E slot so that u can add a PCI-E card for ur gamin needs....

    ok
    considering your budget here is a very rough and approximate layout:-

    15"TFT from BenQ

    Samsung 40/80GB hard drive

    256x2 MB dual channel

    AMD 3000 64+ with asrock or winfast with onboard
    6200 pci turbo card with shareable memory

    Intex/Mercury/Samtech/TechCom 5.1 speakers low end models

    Choose 250-300W power supply from coolermaster/Mercury

    And go for LG DVD writer or the one from Kiobe
    and choose cabinet from iBall.



    and now two things from me:-

    Either you dont know anything about the pc or you are joking with all the guys around.
    Look man let me give you one piece of advice,
    for running vista on your machine smoothly you should atleast have 2GB of RAM on ur system!

    Regarding your specifications you have mentioned everything that a decent computer should contain.
    So, my friend, atleast increase ur budget by 15000-20000/-!
    And i'll promise. that you will get nothing but the best system of your choice, with all of our best comments added to it.
    Even personally i'll help you build the rig.
