I have some old desktops setup with Gigabyte ga-945gcm3 and g-31 configs.
Mostly all data will be saved on cloud, just need users to be able to browse, use excel/ms word.

I am getting all required hardware like RAM/CMOS battery/keyboard-mouse via the hardware dealer, getting good price comparatively.
Logitech mk120 keyboard/mouse combo - 850 INR per unit
2 Gigz DDR RAM - 750 INR each.

But on HDD the dealer recommends 1TB Seagate drive = INR 3400 each
Further dealer adds purchasing 80 gigs (available from 900 to 1200 INR max on amazon/flipkart are all refurbished products (expired and not warranty, if goes BAD).

Just looking for suggestions from end-users here.
Around 4 to 12 HDD to be ordered.

Dealer further insisted to purchase just 1 unit from any sites and check the serial number for confirmation..
If warranty etc. is there. from official HDD site.

3400 is quite high. it should be lower. And if you dont need that speed, spend ~1800ish on 120GB SSDs. You can get them refurbs as well..

Thanks vivek. i am happy with 80 gigz drives, just unsure since amazon/flipkart got same and selling for price mentioned.
As per my dealer, those are refurnished and got no warranty with manufacturer..
I am confused, how are those sold as NEW EQUIPMENT..

Surprised, that cell phone results shows HDD availability (under 800 to 1200 max) wereas desktop results varies and have nothing..

Dealer is right ? (for amazon/flipkart etc.)
