256 ram with core 2 duo 6300 is going to make the system wrk like a dying horse... tell him to buy 1 gig more ram if he wants to see the potential of that PC :)

an E6300 with the cheapes mobo and 256mb ram would cost around 15k approx.. and a 19" TFT comes for over 15k ... add a 80gb hdd a mouse + kb, a case and PSU for another 3-4k ...
So there should be a catch :p .. or its a brilliant offer

My friend bought almost a similar config from zenith for 36k incl. all tax and handling charge with 17" LCD though. The system is damn slow with 256Mb ram, and that 17" LCD :S yuck, better get a decent CRT instead.

I agree, the zenith branded lcd's are not that good, atleast the 15" weren't, dunno who makes it for them.

What an unbalanced PC. These branded PC makers just make use of the reputation or hype created by one or two components to promote the whole PC. In this case its a Core 2 Duo machine irrespective of the other components used.

I once even saw an ad for some branded PC that said that thier PC had Highend nVivia graphics. turned out that the PC has a Geforce FX 5200. :rofl:

Another time an aqaintance was asking me about my graphics card. I told him that I have a 6800GT with 256MB Memory and that I got it for 25k. He tells me that I was duped and that he Got a 512MB card for a lot less. turns out that he has a 6200TC with upto 512MB memory. :rofl:

Too overpriced for the specs.. U can build a good E6400 system with 2gb ram for that price.

And for some reasons. Zenith PC sux.... They dont deserve to be called a branded pc.

^^ You may have to dump that 19 inch tft and 256 mb ram(and get 2gb) too along with the PSU if you wanna play some decent games. So if you remove all the unwanted stuff from this computer , you will end up with the proccy and mobo!!

Its a 946 chipset rather than 945. It has GMA 3000 like the G965. But the specifications on Intel site says that it supports 533MHz and 800MHz FSB and no mention of 1066 MHz. maybe its for the new 4k series Core 2 chips that are comming up. Any way a C2D would be best on a 965 or 975
