Is that like Mac for creative and PC for business? I really hate to be pigeon holed.

That is an interesting observation which was new to me.
It's been my experience... a good 95% of the business PCs I encounter when consulting are Intel based systems, and most uber gamers I know prefer AMD for their rigs.

I use my Intel Quad for both purposes, but I've always been an Intel fan... well ever since a bad experience with an AMD 5x86 CPU in 94! LOL!

1. CPU
AMD these days produce budget CPUs offering decent performance in most applications, Intel CPUs are kept aside to be in the 14K range
A Tri-Core 3.1Ghz AMD Athlon II is chosen

The mainboard is a decisive factor, an AM3 Mobo such as the ASUS M4N68T-M V2 AM3 will be selected, and this costs around Rs. 1,600

My guess would be that many gamers build their own systems and find the AMD components to be more fitting to their budget. And also, there are just so many more Intels on the market that it is normal to encounter them more frequently. I have both AMD and Intel systems and on an apples to apples comparison I really see no difference in performance - but I am not a gamer.

Thank you all. Thanks for your help..
Can you please also suggest good Modem upto Rs.2200 and 5.1 speakers also in Rs. 2200.
I am thinking about Creative A520 5.1 Speakers and BELKIN MODEM+ROUTER 150.

And also I am thinking to buy External hard disk instead of buying the SATA hard disk, because External will be more portable. I'd be able to take that away and connect it with any PC.

I have attached the rate-list of my nearest dealer.
Please advise something from it.

Thanks.
