better option for you at that budget would be xbox 360.

18k including lcd = no gaming. atleast not if you are buying everything new.

How is it possible to game @ res 1280 x 1024 with the above config ?. Atleast a 9600gt / 4670 GPU + a 460w PSU is required, isnt it ?. Even if you add these, i doubt whether stutter free gaming would be possible to game at 1280 x 1024 with the above config

How can you say it is not possible when u should it can be probable
so for stutter free gaming min of 25 fps is required if I am not mistaken
and he would play only those games which are not heavy on the rig
not Crysis or Stalker CS
even farcry 2 will be able to give 30 at the res with min-mid settings
c'mon yaar we can do it.
time is what I don't have
I will be 24X7 on the system so keep those suggestion coming in

biostar 785g mobo with ddr3 support retails for 3.65k
so what will be the minimum cost of a board with 128 mb of sideport memory in it. which is definitely going to give a boost as it won't be sharing a part with the ram. with ddr2 support.

So guys
This is my build uptil now
AMD Athlon II X2 240 2.8ghz - - - Rs. 2650
iBall Cabinet with 450 watt PSU - -Rs. 1300

UPS Standard - -- - - -- - - - - -Rs. 1200
Monitor 17" LCD - - - - - - - - - - Rs. 5500
Speaker 2.1 Logitech - - - - - - - -Rs. 450

Total comes to 16000 without motherboard
Asrock A785GM-LE 128MB Side- - Rs. 3400 has 2 memory slots
or Biostar TA785GE 128MB Side - - Rs. 4000 has 4 memory slots

What can I do to make it near 18K
