    lol yeah spending that much is not feasible for us .. but with someone with the dough .. why the heck not !
    go for it ....
    yet again the technology WILL be old in a year thats for sure ...
    but ull be able to work it for a good 2 yrs ... i hope ...
    go in for the amd 64 that way to be safer ...
    and god i hope for u the x800 PCI-E comes out soon :D .. that is ofcourse if ur going for the pentium by any chance ... OR u get ur hands on an nforce 4 MOBO ... whenever that is out too ..
    GOD soo much technology ... so close yet soo far .. sigh

    hmmm
    wait a bit b4 splurging that much money. new technologies r yet 2 hit Indian markets....
    wait 4 them b4 spending 2.5 lakhs...
    and guys, if he wants 2 spend that much money, just let him....
    im sure he knows that the tech will b obsolete soon but what the heck!!! let him enjoy a superfast PC while it lasts.....
    i think that the P4EE sucks and is over hyped....AMD 64-bit is better

    i think when LH will arrive then spending this much money for a "ROCKING PC" wuld be gud idea...
