    Plz suggest a configuration for the following hardware : -
    I will be assembling this pc myself and will b using it on the lan.

    1 > AMD Processor(only) and supporting motherboard.
    (i) Processor -- [ Pentium equivalent (1Ghz to 2Ghz range) ]
    (ii) Motherboard
    --- 2 USB slots will be sufficient
    --- support for DDR RAM (266 FSB will do)
    --- 3 pci slots will suffice
    --- agp 4x is ok.

    2 > Preferably onboard sound and graphics card.
    --- if not onboard plz suggest other.
    --- will not b playing games or running any 3d-intensive applications.

    3 > Lan Card/Cables (good quality..plz give a detailed desc)
    (Also plz gimme detailed specs bout setting up a wireless lan.)


    Plz gimme a rough idea about the individual prices. Plz elaborate on Lan card/cables/wireless.

    Will decide bout cd-rom,speakers,floppy drive,hard disk,monitor,keyboard,mouse myself.

    NOTE :- My sole purpose to get a new pc is to try out some networking applications in Windows and Linux.

    off to "never ever" land
    a budget would've helped
    anyways since this is low end config ... shouldnt make a diff
    as for the proccy if ur going in for amd 2000 then u better hurry they are fading out the 266 fsb
    amd 2000 : INR 2850
    supporting mobo : id suggest an asus ... anyways ull get boards ranging from INR 3000-INR 7000 with onboard sound , graphics and LAN . but for ur needs u can go in for a krypton with above features. .. will cost u ard INR 4000 approx ..
    256 mb ddr 333 ram should be enuff for INR 1800
    for wireless u can get adapters from 3000 - 4500
    access points from 5000 onwards
    a kit for 2 pc's with AP for 8k and less

    My budget is around 8 - 9 k.
    This excludes cd-rom,speakers,floppy drive,hard disk,monitor,keyboard,mouse and ram.

    Will consider bout wireless lan some time later.

    Thanks guys!

    Go for AMD Athlon 2400+.
    Best value for money.

    Get AMD Athlon XP 2600+ Barton with Asus A7N8X-VM mobo with nForce2 IGP. The board has GeForce 4 MX graphics and you can share 128MB of your main memory with that. The Kingston ValueRAM would be the great option with this.
