i have been using this as htpc which i would like to sell if i get a good price

Dell 20 inch 16*9 led monitor ( IN 2020 M )

athlon 440 ( unlocked 4th core)

asus m4a 78 lt mle

corsair value select 2*2gb ddr3

seagate 500gb

lg dvd writer

zebronics cabby with generic 400 watt powers supply

The rig is around 8 to 9 months old with most of the bills and warranty for all products left

Let me know if you are interested

^^^^^ add creative 2.1 speakers sbs 370 and an xfx 4670 ddr 3 1gb too ....for sale

i guess shipping charges for all the above will be quite high and since the op is on budget , it wont work out...his call though

#abhijit266 I think you need to get a discrete gpu and a good CPU if you plan to watch 1080p movies. You wouldn't want it to be lagging. Also, I think full HD monitors cost a bit more than 6k (though I am not sure).

@aproxy i know that dude but i am not so fond of HD movies soo much but may be sometimes if i dont have work i might watch but do not want a full hd monitor coz cost will go up i think 18.5 to 20 inch would be perfect for office work.but i might download stuffs like movies but seeing it is a rare thing.

In that case, would suggest to get a 16" monitor for about 4.5K. Also, with this limited budget, you cannot get a dual core. Ideally, get the smallest HDD with good VFM and get a 1TB later on.

If HD movies play back is needed, then the mobo will have to be upgraded to a 760G mobo.
