@ Jas
How did you get that table?
And you mistyped CM Elite 310 as CM Elite 430 in the first config.

May end is a far.

Thread cleaned up.

@Saswat: please mind your own business.

@utkarsh09: If your friends are planning to purchase the machines around May, then it is better to have a thread started at that time only. Technology and prices keep on changing.
