    The shop is named Prime ABGB.....
    PRIME ABGB PVT. LTD
    Shop no.16, Laxmi Building Compound,
    Lamington Road, Mumbai 4
    Phone nos. 23855500/ 23896600/ 30961742


    The board u r getting supports dual channel.........so if u put 2 512MB sticks...the speed of each of the stick will be doubled...so u will get better performance out of the same amount of memory....

    ASUS 945 PL is a good mobo....but i'm not too sure if it is very easily available.........

    1) You can't get serious gaming with a 5k graphic card. But maybe something to play the not very intensive games at low - med settings.

    2)AFAIK Pentium D930 is for around 10k.

    3) Amd 64 3000 Venice : 4500
    or 3500 Venice : 5700

    Asus A8N E : around 5k - 5.5k, maybe even almost 6k

    2 X 512mb ddr 400 transcend (UCCC chips, if not available then Hynix D43 chips) : around 4k

    250GB SATA II NCQ SEAGATE for 4200

    Or wait for conroe, they will lead to price fall atleat, then may atleast, you might be able to core solo(celeron) in a low budget.

    I am not hardcore gamer but still don't want miss to play latest games also. I can compromise with the performance.

    So I would like to go for XFX Geforce 7300GS particuler this model if available in Mumbai
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814150128

    The 7300GS is available at Prime ABGB at around 3650.00.
    I guess this card mostly allow me to play all the latest games ofcourse not with very high frame rates.

    I don't want to buy high end graphic card instead I would like to buy 2 GB ram. This would really improve the performance....what do you think ?

    Now confused about mobo....I read at many places that Asus mother board gives more trouble installing XP & thier support is also not good. Also I am not planning for over clocking

    So how about MSI or Gigabyte 945 mother board ?

    Any one can suggest me any particuler model ?

    What are you gonna do?

    for office applications, 2gb over 1gb shouldnot be a much diff upto office 2003.
    for vista : yes
    for photoshop multitasking: yes, maybe
    for office 2007 : not sure, but 1gb will be ok

    Graphic card: don't get a 7300GS, I think it is TC. Consider atleast 7300GT which is around 4400. You will be able to play MOST(not all) current games at low settings at ok-ok or just playable frame rates.
    All new games won't run acceptably on this card.
    eg: GRAW won't be running ok, i ran it on 800*600 lowest and it was crap on a 6600GT which should be better than 7300GT non GDDR 3
    if you can get then get 7300GT GDDR3

    if you are a gamer then no point thinking below 7600GT/7900GT that too only for todays games.

    2gb ram will be around 8-9k +-depending upon location.
