System around Rs.50000/$1000
  

Hi,
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

Hello nithingujjar,

Welcome to Techarena community!

According to me what you are asking is too much for Rs. 50,000
If you really want a good machine then I must say with this budget only think about the CPU Cabinate (Processor, ram, mobo, hdd, graphic card etc. Don't include IO devices!)
In this is way its possible for you to get a nice machine for you needs like programming, gaming, surfing in short multitasking & all!

I hope you understand what I mean to say!

For future-proof PC for next 3-4 years... you can go for the latest Core2Quad CPU, probably the Q9650 is the superior chip all around short of the extreme series. It is an easy choice in my opinion, larger L2 cache, 3 Ghz, EO stepping is the standard on these chips, very stable overclocker. Or else Q9400 is also better. For your heavy use that you have mentioned, a Core2Quad with 4GB of Ram will be a fine working deal.

If you order the parts form the place where you know you can get cheap than this assembled PC will definitely cost you less. Also after years, if you fell your PC poor in comparison of latest tech then, then you can upgrade it easily. If you go for branded one, you will have to rely on them. But then, you get assurance of better performance from a branded one.

Check this - Intel Processors & Motherboard pricelist

The pricelist is 4 months old and the prices might have dropped by now. This is just to get and idea of the prices and compare between models.

You mean a help in monetary terms?? That is not possible buddy
Just a joke

Well, you can save some spendings on TFT screen. There are also better TFT widescreen monitors availabe in the range of 12000. Probably BenQ or some others.

Also, a 500GB Sata2 HDD with 32 MB cache can cost you upto 3000 bucks. In Mumbai at lamington road, it is available at that price in some shops.

In similar way, you can get all the above listed components at slightly reduced cost and this will definitely lower your overall cost to some extent. But for that, you will have to look around and get the prices from various dealers. In some cases, low-balling will also help. The prices you have mentioned are the ideal prices and I think this way you can reduce the overall cost by 7k to 8k
