    If u want Quad Core then get a Q8200 for 8.8k.

    For AMD, stick with AMD Phenom II X4 920 BE - 10k
    AFA, Mobo get any mobo from Gigabyte or ASUS

    40k and a 19". That's a easy pick :)

    Dell 1909W: 7k
    Phenom II X3 720 BE: 7.5k
    MSI 770-C35 socket AM3 mobo: 4.7k-5k(doesn't support am2+/am2 processors)
    or
    Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H: 4.5k.

    if you trust ASUS more, go for M4A78-EM
    Transcend 2x2Gb DDR3 1333MHz: 3.5k-3.8k

    Palit GTS250 1Gb: 9k or HD4850 512MB : 7k (since you are going for 19", these are more than enough to play all the games)
    2x WD Blue or Seagate 7200.12 500 gig HDD: 5.3k (2.7k each)
    Corsair VX450W: 4k
    Cooler Master Elite 335 for 2.5k or Zebronics Reaper for 2k

    Rest of the stuff you know :)

    Don't go for Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200.. it doesn't supports virtualization.. and 720 BE pwns it easily...

    Desiiji, once said no Q8200 - so don't go for it.
    For 40k you can easily buy Q9550 @12k and some mobo (its ur pick - whether u need micro atx or atx - p35/p45)

    PROCESS SHOULD BE THE ONLY THING IN WHICH U HAVE TO PUT MORE MONEY. NOT EVEN MOBO IMHO!


    RAM - 2x2gb or single 2gb kingston/transcend/ corsair - depending on ur budget.

    Don't go for 2x500 as desiji said. Pick a single 1tb or 1.5tb seagate or western digital. I would've recommended seagate's 7200.11 1tb or 1.5tb - but desii said they are not good (and even i think so after seeing my friends getting problem with that).

    Video Card - get a dumbest and cheapest video card - for that 19" monitor even a low end video card can give u eye candies in games. My pick would be 9600GT 512mb PALIT. And one more thing, what ever chipset u buy - GO FOR PALIT/ZEBRONICS or any other cheap brands - don't go for ZOTAC/XFX/ASUS/MSI or something like that unless they are as cheap as other brands.

    PSU - for 9600GT 512mb - Zebronices 400W PLATINUM (it sures handles - and its pretty good - i'm having the same combo)

    Monitor - I won't tell any 19" monitor. God I hate them so much. If you are willing to spend some more - then here are some choices
    BENQ E2200HD - around 9k (FULL HD - 1920x1080)
    SAMSUNG 2233sw - under 10k (FULL HD - 1920x1080)
    BENQ G2412HD - under 13K (24") (FULL HD - 1920x1080)
    S2409W - price not sure - some said under 15k - but i dunno. (FULL HD - 1920x1080)
    For the above monitors - u might have to switch onto PALIT GTS250 / 9800gt and switch off few eye candies in games (thats no big deal)

    Once this monitor is in house - even the people who aren't interested in watching movies will save some time to watch quality movies... and not to mention those beautiful HD clips that u get from the digit mag and apple website...

    @emmarbee, dude I specially mentioned that only 19" monitors. The system is for my bro. He's gonna stay in hostel and I don't want to make his room a place of attraction only because of a huge monitor. 19" s are IMO common now-a-days.

    @others, thank you all. I'm picking up things. To make all u clear, the configuration required includes Sound system (2.1), UPS, DVD RW(Samsung latest series I guess, or anything else).
    I better edit the first post of my exact requirements.

    @rhitwick, dont bang me, but samsung 2033SW is available in around 7.2K, same goes for dell 20", so decide yourself.
    your bro will be running system for long so buy gigabyte/asus mobo. msi MSI 770-C35 is a nice choice if you wanna go dor DDR3, quiet a wise move if you go for it.
    spending 40K so lil better speakers than BRX1121R, for gfx no second thoughts than HD4850, increasing on all goodies will make u miss UPS and all.

    Well, this is what I've settled till now. Comment on it.

    Procy: Phenom II 720 BE (7700/-)

    MOBO: Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H (I need 2-3 alternatives for it. there are chances I may not get this one) (u2sh@4515/-)

    SMPS: Corsair VX450W (3950/-) / Tagan TG500-U37 (3375/-) / Coolermaster Extreme Power 500W (2850/-)

    RAM: G.Skill - F2-6400CL5D-4GBPQ( 3000/-)

    HDD: WD 250GB (2125/-)

    GFX Card: Palit HD4850 512MB/ Sapphire HD4850/ Palit GTS 250 (Which one?) (Palit GTS 250 @7245/- / Palit HD4850 @8098/-)

    DVD RW: Samsung 20x SATA SH-203B (1200/-)

    Monitor: 19" LCD: Dell 1909W /AOC 917 VW (7200/- / 6450/-)

    Speakers: Creative Inspire 2.1 (1800/-)

    UPS: APC 500VA (2550/-)

    KBD+Mouse: Logitech KBD+Mouse set (1000/-)

    Taking the bold ones it comes 44385/- it would add another 3-4k in my state. So I need to cut down a few places.
    I can only find
    Procy
    RAM (How about transcend 800Mhz? 2*2GB 2500/-)

    I anyhow can't bring it down 45K. Below that it looses its charm :-|:-?

    When I summed the total, it is coming at 40k only. how did you get it at 44385?

    anyways, remove that junky creative 2.1 and add altec lansing BXR1121 (1.2k).

    a 500VA will not be able to provide proper backup for the system. YOu need 650VA atleast. with 500VA and 500W PSU+19" display, UPS battery will lose it's potential very soon. It is only for 330W output.

    @rhitwick, I once bought Creative M4500 with the same assumption. Sold them off after a week and bought MX-5021Creative speakers that are manufactured these days lack clarity. AL VS4121, Edifier C2, Logitech X230, Philips MMS430 are miles ahead of Creative Inspire 2.1
