Your budget for Processor+Mobo+Ram+HDD+Casing+GPU = 36200 while Abo setup costs:
If you decide to buy a separate PSU then dont buy that casing.. instead go for Asus TA-M1 for Rs.4300. So the total setup will now costs:
Yup.. thats 5k more than what Abo's suggested setup cost but you will be able to forget about upgrading psu for a while and also getting the looks of TA-M1.
I am suggesting TA-M1 to every second person I see on the forum as I myself have ordered it just a day before..

Thank you guys for your quick response. Really find all the posts useful. I will surely go for Asus Mobo now because most of you recommend that.
I realize most of you are leaning towards the E6300 which I read is a Pentium while E7500 is a Core 2 Duo. Although, I understand, that is only a marketing gimmick by Intel and they share the same structure but it would be difficult job convincing my less tech savvy friends who will come to check out my PC. Only if one of my friends declare that, "Oh you just bought a crappy Pentium, not even a Core 2?", my whole investment will be compromised. But again, I am willing to save even a hundred rupees if I can.
I guess processor and Mobo is settled. I am getting E6300 with Asus P5PKL CM. Will get 640 GB HDD if I can get it at a good rate. LCD will be Viewsonic VX1940 for 11,600 if I get it.
Still unsure about:
The Capture card
[B]The Networking Solution[B]
(I can't afford Linksys, its way over budget. I want the cheapest reliable thing. Is TPLINK OK for W Router and Wireless USB)
(9600 GT, like you guys say is going to be obsolete soon and is OK for average gaming. What if I don't get any card now and save some money for about six months and then get a GTS 250 or later. Would they be in 10,000 range in six months?) Will I be able to play some games like those from before 2004 simply on the P5PKL and E6300 without a graphics card?

Oh one more thing guys: The retailers are telling me that I should get Windows XP installed on my machine. Now, I know I can always install any Windows later on myself, I just want to save myself the hassle. Which windows would you recommend for the E6300 and this desktop. XP is like so yesterday and boring but stable. What do you say?
Very low resolution is used in these benchmarks and I doubt if you will be able to get any satisfactory performance from this card at your resolution. I will suggest to buy a cheap discrete card instead in price range of 3k for the time being.
I need a little guidance about Video Capture Card. Please understand my requirement:
I need to convert about 40 VHS Cassettes ranging from 1950s to 1998 into a digital medium for archiving. I need a Video Capture Device that gives me a decent resolution above 500X600 pixels hopefully. My budget is 3000 rupees for that card but it needs to capture video plus audio off a VCR.
Also, I need advice from where to get this card because typical retailers show me sht cards that are basically TV Tuner cards and only good for watching. I need urgent help by someone who knows about this stuff or if you know someone I can ask on the forum, let me know I will ask them directly.
I have finally purchased a system. It cost me just under 40 thousand rupees from Computer Zone. Here goes the specifications:
Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2.93 Ghz
Kinston 2 GB DDR II
WD 320 GB 16MB Cache
Asus Vento Casing w 350 PSU
View Sonic 19" LCD
HP 1260i DVD Writer
I have ran out of budget. Will wait a few months before I can purchase a graphics card. I just want to play games occasionally and playing the newest games is not my main concern. I just want to be able to enjoy playing a couple of racing games, simulation games and numerous first person shooters. Please recommend the best graphics card that I can buy for this system which is under 6000 and operates on Asus 350 Watt System.
