    If you can tell us more about what exactly you want to use PC for it will be helpful cause config may vary a bit if you want to use your PC for different purposes.
    I am not too good at hardware but this is what I would have got for your budget:
    AMD Athlon 2800+ 64 bit 754 pin
    ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard
    Transcend 512 MB RAM @400MHz

    Amd 939 3000+ (754 is not the way to go)
    Gigabyte K8N51GMF or ASUS A8N-VM
    Transcend or Hynix 512 mb ram

    This will cost 12000- 12500 but itz much better than the 754 version. This has better graphics and speed

    He's right you should get 939 pin if it fits within your budget. 939 pin is the way to go if you want it to be more future-proof. And I guess this fits your price range very well.

    did i misunderstand something?

    SPEAKERS for use in a medical shop? why???

    Anyway, i think even a pentium 1 would be more than enough for office use.

    Then I guess vysaram's config will be good enough. You don't need a very end system. If you can manage an Athlon 2800+ 939 pin that will also do, if you face budget problems. So, atlast go for
    AMD Athlon 3000+ 939 pin OR 2800+ 939 pin if budget becomes a constraint.
    Either of the motherboard. And 512 MB or RAM either from Transcend or hynix, but I guess transcend would be more expensive. Just go to a few shopkeepers and have a talk about these and then make your choice.

    Is it possible? I thought A64 2800 was available only in 754 pin version.

    BTW is the medical store not meant to sell medicines? (joking)

    I am not 100% sure but I do remember reading about 2800+ 939 pin. I may have been mistaken. If so I am sorry for misinformation.
