What about the connector cables, cabinet, monitor and other stuff? Are you buying those new as well?

Anyways, it's your call. A "used" HD48xx or GTX2xx will beat the stuffing out of any new 9500/9800 card anyday.

Why on earth did you purchase a server class board?!? What was wrong with a consumer X58 based motherboard? With that board, you won't be able to play around with any settings in the BIOS.

That 250GB HDD is going to fill up faster than you can imagine.

P.S.: I hope you bought the D0 stepping.

Because in India we dont get a lot of options to chose from. As all the major branded computer hardware parts is imported from china.

There were only three to four boards available and two of them was for i5.And I was surprised when I found out that none of the intel core i family chips were not available except the i7 920.

And in India costs are higher for computer parts than compared to US.

Sorry, but I don't believe that. Perhaps I'm not aware of the market as much as you are, but I've lived in India long enough to figure out the price differential between your market, here (UAE) and other places like the USA or Blighty.
Case in point - the MSI X58 Pro is available in India for less than what you probably paid for that Intel board.

Anyhow, I'm not here to stir up a debate and you've made your purchase anyways. Be sure to post your system scores in the WEI thread. I'm curious to know if a workstation board has any enhancements that allow it to push scores further up.

Err.. the MSI X58 Pro cannot support the i5 and other Lynnfield processors since it's an X58 board and not P55. This is the board I'm talking about and it supports the i7 920 perfectly and costs about Rupees 11,000 in India right now.

The i5 750 is already available in major markets like New Delhi and Bombay for about Rupees 10,000 right now.

Dude actually what happened was that at first I purchase this board only. At the time of assembling, i7 920 wont fit into the socket. So I took it back, the salesman called the MIS guys and they told that there was a problem with the board all the lot those were sent contains another board that does not support i7 920 but packaging was of MSI X58 Pro. So I had no option but to go with this one.
It cost RS 10300 over here and I bought Intel board for RS 10920 including taxes.

But I7 950 is not available in (kolkata)West bengal not even in Chandni Market(the biggest market for computer and electronics parts in West bengal)...........
