hello all,
well I am planning to buy a new mobo+processor+gpu, so i need suggestion from u ppl. Mu budget is 10k for each product(total 30k). I do hav some wish list for my mobo which is :
1:It should have Wi-fi onboard or bundled wid it.
2:It should have two IDE ports to connect my existing 500gb PATA HDD and DVD-Writer(well one will also do, but two is highly desirable)

The other day I was reading reviews at techspot and i liked ASUS P5W DH DELUXE and they said it comes for 250$, So I want to know whether it is available in India or not and what's it's current price or is there any other model sporting same or better features.

As for the GPU, my only requirement is that I should be able to play call of duty 4(and like) on it smoothly at high res.

On the processor side, The choice is pretty clear, I would be going for Core 2 Duo.

I am not an avid gamer so overclocking and all are not for me, so please suggest models which perform gud under normal conditions and don't usually overheat.

Also suggest a PSU which will handle all of these.....

Well I hav asked enough questions for now...

so Thanks in advance...

Dont buy costly mobos. Ask forum to suggest a mobo in a range of 6k. this will do the Job. Or you can go for Abit IP35-E for 5300
http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=IP35-E&fMTYPE=LGA775

And GPU: HD4850 is way better then the NIVIDIA one.And Its has a best VFM.

Your power supply may not be enough. You can find cooler master extreme 500w around 2.6k. and 600w for 3.1 k. just chek the following link

http://www.theitwares.com/smps/smps.htm

And processor E8400 for Rs 7500.00

Now you total cost leaving GPU. 5300+3000+7500= 15800
Now with a little increase in your budget and a good bargaining you can add a HD 4870 instead of HD4850(a best choice if you have smaller screen)for around 16000.00 and your killing machine is ready.

If u need WiFi then just get a WiFi adapter and plug it into ur Mobo... OK... And there is no Mobo comes with Wifi for around 10k... I give u the cheapest Mobo that comes with Wifi(upto my search).... If u go with the above option i suggest u the ABIT IP35E for 5.8k or ASUS P5Q Pro for around 8-9k....And use the rest of d money 2 get a WIfi card.....Hope tis helps u..
If u choose ABIT -> 7500+5800+10000+3000(PSU) = 26300
If u choose ASUS -> 7500+9000+1000+3000 = 29500

Now its up to u.....

Well toofan, I don't wanted to buy a costly mobo, it' just that i want a mobo wid onboard wi-fi as it is more convinient then adding it separately but as rajkumar has pointed out that no mobo wid wi-fi wud come under 10k, so now I'll be going for some cheaper solution and add wi-fi card separately.

Now with a little increase in your budget and a good bargaining you can add a HD 4870 instead of HD4850(a best choice if you have smaller screen)for around 16000.00 and your killing machine is ready.
And Toofan I hav 19" wide screen monitor, so which GPU wud be gud for that.

And once more thanks a lot people and especially rajkumar for making detailed suggestions......

if u have 19" go for HD4850 it will play all the games with max detail and all eye candy on peacefully ...no hassles ....for HD4850 u need minimum 22" to unlock its potential ...and for HD4870 ..u need minimum of 24" monitor ...if u are planning to go for 22" in near future ...go for HD4870 else ....HD4850 will be enough for all ur gaming need (even if its a bottleneck at 19" monitor)...

wifi card is not that costly, less than 1K. Hence you can go for asus P5Q Pro and other P45 chipset mobos also.

For 19inch screen HD4850 is more then sufficient. It can handle all the games till date easily. (don't ask about crisis this game is not meant for humans living in this planet named earth.God has cursed us that by another 100years you will not be able to play crysis at its full glory.:D:D)

If you want to be on safer side then buy HD 4870 now as In comming years games would be more graphically intense(Of course if you can afford it). or you can buy another HD4850 later when this species would be in danger of depletion:D(then they would be cheapest) and cross fire it. For that you will have to look for mobo supporting crossfire.
