First things first : Budget 30K

Needs
Multimedia mainly plus office work & causal gaming
A large LCD screen
Good looks from exterior, he wants a Sexy Machine (wonder why people bother so much about looks)

Please suggest

Re: Need to buy a PC for my friend

http://www.acer.co.in/products/produ...0%20uSFF&cid=4

this is sexy.....

otherwise

e7200 -5.8k
biostar gf 7050 - 2.2k
9600gso - 6k or 8600gt 512 - 4k ( if he is a really casual gamer )
ram- 2gig - 1.8
HDD- seagate ( same as above ) but cheaper - 2k
dvd-r - 1.1
any cabinet that he likes the looks of - 1-1.5
psu - vip/amigo ( because a high end wont really benefit here ) -1.2 to 1.5
keybd/mouse - 800
speakers - depending on choice - 200/- to 2000
comes to roughly 21-22k
i would suggest increase budget little and buy 19 inch lcd or if have little more than around 13.5k for a 22 inch lcd. in the existing amount to cut the bill under 30k, you could get a 16-17 inch samsung widescreen or something ( below 8k )

note- this is for average gaming, will run mostly all games but dont expect mind blowing, earth shattering graphics, but will suffice as a good office work machine as well.

Though if gamin is not that critical you could scrimp on the cpu and buy a cheaper dual core ~ 3k either the 2160 or 2180.

Re: Need to buy a PC for my friend

okay things are taking shape finally.

based on suggestion from many people here and a local dealer , i have made a rough draft of a INTEL based PC.
not comfortable with AMD, so will be buying from Intel's stable.

Core 2 Duo E 8200
Intel DP35DP
Transcend 2X1GB 800MHz
NVIDIA 8600GT
Seagate 250GB Single Platter ST3250310AS
Samsung 203B/D 20x SATA 20x DVD ReWriter
Dell 19" SE198WFP OR LG
need suggestion on CPU/Mobo & graphics card.
rest parts are almost final


and
whats the difference between Intel® P35 Express Chipset and Intel® P45 Express Chipset?

Re: Need to buy a PC for my friend

Made a Trip to Computer Market.
Lots of surprises & disappointments

-->
Dealers have no clue about the products they sell,example he made me a sample configuration; for them is CPU is C2D, no model number, no FSB or Cache details available. same for Mobo, they sell Mobotherboard Telling "Intel Original". WTH! is Intel Original.
i pushed him hard,so he called Intel's Distributer so i got to know CPU was E4600 & mobo was DG31PR or D945GCPE.even the disto was not sure, Damn you
E7200,E8200 & E8400 are not available, after 4600 they have Quads. need to check in few more shops.

-->
He is pushing me hard to buy Zion/Hynix Ram, can says Kingston is cr@p. when i asked about transcend is said Hynix is the best ram in the world lol

-->On Asking about AMD procy, surprisingly he had the whole Range right from 4200 to X3 & X4 ready stock . but he was bundling with with some Asus Mobo costing 2200/- bucks, no details on that were available

--> When i asked About 7200 and if he can arrange it, he said its out of stock and does not know when it would be available

--> Graphics is of Sparkle 8600GT for 4.5k


what is the performance of this X3 & X4 comparing to Intel 7200?

Re: Need to buy a PC for my friend

e7200 is MUCH better than both of those.

however.. if u dont OC .. the x3 is also good.. but make sure u get a good mobo along with it.. something like the giga 790g..
