1) Dual Core II Generation Processor
2) Intel Original 611 motherboard
3) 2GB DDR III RAM
4) 500 GB SATA HDD
5) DVD RW
6) ATX Cabinet
7) 18.5 LED
8) Optical Mouse
9) Multimedia Keyboard.

Total price = Rs. 20,000 /-

Can any one with good maths give me price for each item with best deal possible? I am sure this will help few desi dimers (hopefully). eek

mobo – guess you meant h61 type. gigabyte d2h model at flipkart for 3200 odd is best if you wanna connect HD content on your led/lcd as it has HDMI output. otherwise best mobo by gigabyte again is available at infibeam for 2700 odd using. code icicisummer10. infibeam has only 2 mobo, g41 and h61 so don’t worry about its model number. its best out there in market.

processor – best one available now at best price is g620 or e5700. pricewise check theitdepot and flipkart. don’t remember which has cheaper options.

ddr3 ram – shed 500 more and instead of buying a 2 gb at 700-800 buy a 4 gb at 1200-1300. using eBay weekly voucher can save your money. I had bought a 2 gb corsair ddr3 stick in July when 250 off code came for 520 and for 500 using 300 off last week as my mobo can get 2 sticks. so 4gb coated me 1020. if 150-200 off comes you can get a 4 gb corsair for 1100. corsair is best brand for none serious gamers and valur for money for daily user. don’t go for evm, transcend or kingston only adata, corsair or g-skill has good benchmark

dvdrw and cabinet again can be bought using weekly code of ebay. if you dont have any code be regular on DD there are plenty of giveaway. cabinet I would say buy from local market as you can choose much more styles and options. not much option online. my vote for keyboard goes to Logitech which I have used for more than 6 years without a single fault and in 2 months I have changed intex and frontech. should come for 500 odd, pleanty of options from snapdeal to ebay to yebhi. no idea about monitor as my old Acer is running perfect since 6 years. smile

hope this helps.

Definitely helped bhai smile

Haven’t received any good coupon in my mailbox. Even thought RDX bhai sent me a off coupon but was unable to redeem as my charger was malfunctioned but I hope next time I can use a coupon to get a DVD writer or RAM.

I need a realistic price of this conf as I know local seller is trying to cheat me. Any hard core shopper or shop owner come and tell us actual price of this configuration with product wise break down of price.

Thanks…..

flipkart and theitdepot are best sites to get an idea about prices. flipkart for a change has best product at best price. you won’t get quailty on yebhi, ip, tradus or matchable price at ebay. the price I gave are for best quality items at best price. local dealer would be having atleast 20% margin. a mobo at 2700 from ip would come no less than 3300 in local market. a DDR would cost 1500 that too transcend or Kingston which at flipkart are availble sub 1000. just check theitdepot or flipkart and match quotes by local dealer. and yes you can get these for half prices too at Nehru place(@ any grey or second hand market). but it doesn’t have any warranty. smile

H61 is low end LGA1155 motherboard chipset.
G41 is low end LGA775 motherboard chipset.

Have any idea about different sockets?

G620 is the worst LGA1155 based processor available in the market.
E5700 was considered to be a good mid end processor back in 2007, in C2D era.

Both are highly overpriced and best being avoided.
Primeabgb, itwares and SMC International are 3 of the best sites to buy from in India.

will he be able to make a rig with say a z67 or z68 may be under 20k! and yes these hae LGA 1155 sockets and only chipset type is different. or you would like to suggest a x79, LGA 2011with i7 running on that machine all under 20k!

Oops, You cannot give karma again right now

MarketDimer, your input is valuable for me but I am completely lost….. I don’t need a fancy PC, just a dual core processor is enough with minimal hard disk. Purpose is not gaming or anything hardcore just a sufficient PC or visual studio, internet and other basic tasks. I am assuming that it will be better than old Pentium 4 and other processors. I have Laptop with dual core processor and a desktop with P4 so want to upgrade Desktop.

Thanks.

smart bro, getting a pc for home for normal surfing, little bit of official use, listen music or watch movies can be made with 20k. only technology changes and price remain the same almost. a celeron for instance costed 20k in 2010, a pentium costed 20 in 2011, a dual core or c2d comes under 20k now. next year i3 will become afforadable under same price. but is shedding money really imporatant?

computer is made of 2 basic parts, processor and motherboard. processor is brain and motherboard is heart. stuff connected with heart should be good enough to keep body working. fsb, ram, graphic card etc etc. so when you can work with an inbulit graphic chipset as you don’t want to be a gamer why waste extra money in better motherboard that can take better graphic cards or processor that can boot fast and run program micro second fast or run dozens of applications in one instance? when your work is being done by a 1155 socket and h61 chipset why waste extra 5k minimum in next best chipset of z77 or z68? only main thing to look forward is future upgrades if any you plan. currently a h61 chipset allows you upto i7 but in future say 3 years c2d will become obselete and i7 will become best choice than and something new will come that can be better choice than i7 itself. would you opt that? or would you, after 3 years will be satisfied with i7 also after upgrades? that’s what you have to decide. i will be happy with i7 if there’s a need of upgrade arise after 2 years just in case considering technology updates remain in same speed it is in past many years.

a processor is now very important part as if you don’t want future upgrade you can buy an i5 now by shelling 4k extra on dual core or 8k extra in 4 cores or an i7 spending 8k extra for dual core or or 13k extra for cores? thing is you have to surf, do basic thing and just a visual studio appliaction to run. won’t a c2d sufficient for all these works? and buying a h61 chipset mobo allows you to upgrade upto i7.

don’t be confused, just go ahead and buy what is sufficient for you. you will have to pay much more for better option which is totally useless for you until you want to play gta, assassin creed, max payne etc or work on big multimedia applications.

O bro, thanks a lot for your detailed reply. I don’t need a high end PC. Using Intel dual core since 4 years without any problem and I don’t think I need to upgrade it. I am not even after i3 or other processors…..

Price also doesn’t have to be 20K, I just given rough estimate:

I checked price list from this website http://www.costtocost.in/list/priceli…df

Now can you please suggest lowest configuration/price? I have software knowledge but never digged much into hardware stuff.

1) Dual Core II Generation Processor (please give possible model name or link)
2) Intel Original motherboard (any other board of your preference model please)
3) 2GB DDR III RAM (Will order from ebay with coupon)
4) 500 GB SATA HDD (160 GB SATA SEAGATE is good enough for me)
5) DVD RW
6) ATX Cabinet
7) 18.5 LED
8) Optical Mouse (Bought)
9) Multimedia Keyboard.(Bought)

Basically I want to buy everything online if this is possible otherwise I will buy partial parts online and remaining offline.

Need your pro decision Market bro.

1. Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2H http://www.flipkart.com/gigabyte-ga-h61m-d2h-mo… which is a 1155 socket and h61 chipset and has hdmi output support or GA-G41MT-S2 which is best mobo for core 2, duo etc but on outdated g41 and can’t be upgraded if you want in future http://www.flipkart.com/gigabyte-ga-g41mt-s2-mo…

2. Intel Dual Core G620 Processor http://www.flipkart.com/intel-dual-core-g620-pr…

3. corsair 2 gb http://www.flipkart.com/corsair-2-gb-ram-vs2gb1… or 4 gb http://www.flipkart.com/corsair-4-gb-ram-cmv4gx…

4. 160 is outdated and will be hard to find plus it will be costly in compare to 320/500. a seagate barracuda or wd cavier blue is sufficient for you, about 4000 at ebay. will suggest you to wait for few days if old hdd can work. otherwise barracuda/cb is ok.

5.i have lg dvdrw since 4-5 years and never disturbed me. you can go for asus or sony, both are equally good and at smiliar price of 1200.

6. my zerbronics is working since 4-5 years so not much knowledge any of the reputed brand with inbuilt smps would do, cost around 1500 or or you can buy a blank cabinet from zebronics or frontech or iball around 700-800 and get an smps from ebay using coupons at around 350-400 which actually comes for 500-600. wasting money on high end cabinet is nonsense just to get more usb ports or extra fans which gamers or official person require. local shop is best place for blank cabinet and also if you are happy with spedning few more for smps. choice of colours and degisn is much more than in online.

7. led again no idea as i have got a 17 inch monitor of acer from long time and am happy with it. you have to search on this.

the link i gave was not for an online shop but a real shop in Nehru place in delhi… they post their daily prices online and have very competitive prices to offer… It was just to give u an idea about the real market price of the components…

As suggested by marketdimer… u need not change everything in ur current configuration… just change the processor, mobo and upgrade the RAM which is dirt cheap nowadays. If possible wait for few more months for HDD prices to come down.

Go for AMD dual core processor and AM3+ mainboard. Intel by default is expensive. Buy 2 × 2GB DDR3, samsung optical drive, mercury mini-atx cabinet with psu & AOC/Acer monitor. For cost call abacus peripherals pvt ltd for amd processor & board, they will give you contact for local channel partner in your city.

If you like 2nd hard stuff I can get you AMD 4200 dual core processor (no warranty), BIOSTART TA790GXE-128 mainboard (28 month warranty), ZION 4 × 2GB RAM DDR2 800 (16 month warranty), ASUS NVIDIA 210 silent gpu (30 month warraty) for INR 9,000/- plus shipping.

inkjetunit, cross my heart and speaking honestly in my replies I always wanted to suggest smart bro for amd and not only him to anyone interested in buying/building a new computer. I like most people also feel Intel items are crap and costly. when I get 3.3 ghz on 3.4k athlon (without overclocking) why would I spend 5k on highend c2d or 6-7k on i3 knowing my computing is for basic use. and if I do a minimal overclock same athlon x2 can give me an i5 speed and performance at almost half price!! but didn’t want to confuse thread stater smart bro with overclocking and amds other stuff. and moreover there is no news of next technology and step by amd on what they are doing after bullldozer so other processor prices incuding of intel come down.

at smart bro, a quick point not to confuse, Intel is good for future upgrade as current 1155 sockets can take upto i7 whereas best am3+ mobo. can get some fx series. hence amd is best for today, tomorrow but not after 3 years if need arise as finding a celeron easily is still possible but not sempron. also in future when i7 is cheap you can put that in mobo if it supports but no news if next amd processor will support am3+ after faliure of bulldozer series against i5/i7

amd is cheap, quality, speed and performance if you can play with buttons. Intel is old hero Honda, fill it shut it forget it. I personally is going to buy a Phenom from amd in next week time priced at best c2d processor but I’ll be running it as a i5 equivalent. smile

2nd gen AMD processors or APUs have auto-overclocking feature. AMD Phenom II can be overclocked from BIOS (manual/auto). It all depends on quality of your mainboard, if you have AM3+ mainboard overclocking will make more sense as there are enhancements w/r to processor drawing power during computing.

amd is processor maker just like Intel. you either have Intel processor or amd. you must be knowing Intel based from. celeron to pentium to c2d and so on. same way amd has sempron and athlon, phenom and rest many option. not much difference in 2 specs wise but price wise amd is slight cheaper. not many technician know about amd though its just a processor you will not get much support if anything goes wrong in your local reach. amd nd Intel have different motherboard rest thing remaining the same.

overclocking is process to juice out performance of CPU by tweeking it. just like once you root your mobile you can set its processor speed to desired levels (just an example, both are different things) if you oc your CPU you can improve speed of processor. strict caution is advised as if anything goes wrong you’ll get bsod or blue screen of death and can make processor or motherboard dead. from BIOS setting one has to change value assigned by Intel or amd to level it can take up without problem. though it makes your computer heated up ad use excess voltage that can be slow death of computer. Oc is advised only if you have ample knowledge of voltage levels, various speed of CPU, motherboard capability and processor capabilities. it’s mainly for serious gamers or slow machines. you should not worry about it much or even think of trying. these days one is getting 3ghz or more and already provide other benefits of system speed without tweeking it. it was for past users who had sub 2 ghz speed which could be made to 3 by oc but hurting voltage and heating computer. amd processor and most amd support motherboard allow oc. a good option if there is choice. but still it voids warranty and can destroy whole machine.
