An Eternal Quest for Incremental Improvement

Planning to buy a new PC

I am planning to buy a new PC. Here are the key components that I have in my mind.

  • Intel P4 3.2 GHz with HT
  • MSI P4N Diamond Motherboard
  • Hynix 1GB 400MHz RAM
  • Seagate 160GB SATA HDD
  • LG 16x DVD ROM Drive
  • Samsung 17'' Flat Black monitor
  • Creative Gigaworks S750 7.1 speakers
  • Gaming ATX Tower

This itself comes around INR. 70,000. Apart from this, I have to buy a PCI-X graphics card. A low end card should be available for INR. 3,000. Rest components like DVD Writer, KB and mouse, I will take it from the existing PC. I am going to waste hell a money.

There is no clue about the availability of MSI P4N Diamond motherboard in India. I am very particular about this board. If it is not avaiable now, I will wait till it is.
