I have P4,3.06GHZ,2GB RAM,SIS VGA bought 3 years back.I am developer working on enterprise application(ERP,CRM...)...The deal is I am working from home now. I definitely need a faster machine.I have about 15-20 windows open like 2-3 Visual Studio,3-4 Firefox(with 15-18 tabs each),IE,couple of notepads,2-3 acrobat reader, Outlook,Word,excel... Lot of stuff actually.And P4 is definitely not up to it. Since I am working from home I am in the Stock market as well sine I get some time in the day so there is more windows for that as well.Also I game a little online.
So that was why need a good machine.My budget is about Rs.50000/$1000.
I thought about core i7,but it is expensive for me with the mobo( it goes with X48 only).So I thought I would go for a Quad(...may be Q9300/Q9400 or something better,within my range).I want 500 GB HD,22" monitor,4GB RAM,decent graphics card as well .Also I want to future proof it a little may for next 3-4 years.
Also where do I get it from in India.Would it be cheaper if I order the parts myself then get it assembled by somebody or get the whole thing from a shop.
Really appreciate the response.Thanks.
I would really appreciate it if I
