    Hi

    I need a low budget PC for around max 15k..I can increase the budget for LCD 17" or 19". I will use it mostly for dloading movies, playing some small games, browsing net and running my software testing applications like QTP.

    It should have a small cabinet so that I can transport it from one city to other or to foreign countries conveniently means it should be portable like laptop.

    I already have speakers and USB mouse so no need for them.

    I am against laptop as 24hr dloading movies etc is harmful to laptop. Overall desktop wins against laptop except portability

    Thanks
    Sumit

    Intel E5200/5300 ~3.3K
    Gigabyte G31-ES2L or Asus PK5PL ~2.4K
    Zebronics 350 pro 1.5K
    CM Elite 310 1.6K
    Seagate 160GB HDD ~ 1.9k
    Transcend 2GB DDR II 800Mhz ~ 1.4k

    Total: 17.6k

    To reduce, replace LCD with CRT;)
    16" LCD LG/Samsung ~ 5.5k

    Thanks Gaurish...One q..why not replace the processor with AMD and increase HDD to 250 GB or more ? Any recommendation . Also these things are missing :

    1. UPS
    2. DVD RW
    3. Keyboard
    -----------------------------------------

    Also casing Cooler Master elite 310 is somewhat big..Any other small casing which has only space for one HD, one DVD RW etc..I am looking more towards portability

    AMD based Alternative.
    Processor:AMD athlon II 240-3.2k
    MotherBoard: biostar 785GE-3.2k

    Rest is the same

    Kinda more future than Intel counterpart as AMD is still producing CPU for this socket, so you can always upgrade. so if your budget can be extended, then go for this


    Misc Stuff

    UPS: APC 650va 3k
    Optical Drive: L.G. GH22NS30 SATA/Samsung SH-S22F SATA - 1.1k
    Keyboard: Samsung Pleomax - .2k
    Mouse: Logitech Optical - .4k
    HDD:
    250 GB Seagate - 2k
    320 GB Seagte - 2.3k

    The onboard gfx is ATI HD4200 which is Direct X 10 compatible and comes with native HDMI port. it can play HD/BlueRay movies and almost all games at low-mid settings. in future, you can add a discrete GPU like GTX 250. Further, if you want some more juice you can Overclock it to 3.4Ghz stable on Air cooling:twisted:

    In short, the Best VFM Config

    If you have stretched your budget to 24k from 15k, i would suggest stretching your budget a little more and get X4 620 quad at 5k. So that's just and increase of around 1.5k or something.
