Windows 7: Is this a right choice for the Windows 7 hardware?

I confirmed that with a local shopkeeper, the hardware suggested by you is not fully available with him.

Here I have attached a Large Showroom's rates for different hardware in my city in India.

Can you please advice me something from here.

I have other things like Cabinet, Keyboard, Mouse etc. I just want to build a nice CPU in my budget.

Thanks.

Ok. i'd suggest this one:

CPU: AMD 3850+ (6428 Rs.) item (14)
MoBo: MSI 75 (5450 Rs.) item (48)
RAM: DDR3 GSkill 4GB 1333 (1142 Rs.) item (80)
HDD: 2TB Sata WD (3500 Rs.) item (64)

That's a total of: 16520 Rs.

The rest is up to you (Case/PSU) and if you already have monitor, speakers and mouse/keyboard.

My honest opinion, that'd be my best price/performance configuration.

IF you can gather 1320 Rs. more, i'd totally add an HD 6670 1GB (4800 Rs.) item (117)

But of course, if you can't... you could just add that video card later. it'd give you a lot of video power in a hybrid crossfire for your video/photo editing

EDIT: i'd change the 2TB HDD for a 1TB one (or even a 750GB one), unless you really know that you'll use the 2TB, the difference between both HDDs can give you the money for the GPU. Think about that.

Items 61 (750GB HDD) and 69 (1TB HDD)

A good video card can drastically cut video editing and transcoding times. Since you are not a gamer you wont need a great card, just a good one. As far as value and bang for the buck check on a manufacturer called Zotac. They put out some very good budget priced cards that offer kick butt performance!

True! BUT...

Since i suggested a Llano based PC, Nvidia is not the way to go, and if Nvidia is the way to go, then the Llano would make sense. The idea of building a Llano is having the onboard GPU and the dedicated GPU working together in a hybrid crossfire to increase performance.

It needs an AMD Radeon card, not higher than a 6670 to do the Hybrid.

Since ZOTAC! only builds Nvidia based GPUs it won't help the OP.

BTW, i love ZOTAC! i was going to buy it, but at the end, i got a discount with the Sparkle one so i went with the Sparkle.

Hi jovesh

I noticed you from Delhi and already visited nehru place...i checked the PDF you posted and i think i know the shop where you went.In my opinion you will get a very good and nice config for 20000 bucks....I suggest search more in nehru place.Some shops give you entire details right from LCD to mobo...But you are correct in looking for hardware yourself and asking here.This forum has terrific members who give you invaluable support.Some dealers in Nehru Place misguide you into choosing not so good and obsolete hardware so be careful...

Let us know if u need more help

Why is OP limited to AMD cpu/mobo/gpu? Tendancy is AMD 4 gamers, Intel 4 business... Since OP isnt a gamer, why not just go with Intel/Nvidia? Both Intel and AMD have budget cpus with plenty of budget mobos to boot. I even bet there are more options if OP were to stick with Intel based CPU/Mobo!

Op is free to purchase anything he wants to and can afford or not. But bang for buck AMD must be considered !
