Is this configuration good enough for a Budget PC?

Motherboard: ASUS P5ND2 SE
Processor: Intel C2D E4300
RAM: Kingston KVR667D2N5/512 (X2)
VGA: ASUS EN7600GT-2DHT-256M
HDD: WD 160GB SATA2 7200RPM 8MB
DVD-Writer: ASUS DRW-1608P3S
CASE: iBall Grabit
PSU: 400W
MONITOR: ViewSonic 19inch LCD Wide
Keyboard: iBall Softkey Rock
Mouse: iBall Laser Precise
Speakers: Creative Inspire 5.1
UPS: Proview 700

I live in India. This is the best I could come up with after checking the availability of all products mentioned above. Some items like the processor is yet to be released, and most of it takes two or three weeks delay due to technical difficulty. Anyway do give me your comments and suggestions on this configuration.

  1. well it looks alright but i would seriously suggest that if there isnt too much price different then go for a better processor like in the E 6000 series , as

    i can read in your configuration that you are going to be using a dvd burner

    so , just as a precaution i would get a the better cpu also with your video

    card , anyways thats my advice

    all the best
  2. That's a good budget config.

    I might consider waiting for the 8600GT / 8600Ultra - but that's up to you, really :)

    Check the specs of the PSU before you buy it.
  3. Have you built the system already. I think that p5nd2 is not compatible with core duo, If you have built it and it worked please let me know cz i got a p5nd2-sli and i want to upgrade to core 2 duo
  4. No, it's compatible with c2d, but not listed so on the specs, but it's in cpu support:

    Make sure the board is revision L2.

    The most pressing change would be the psu.
  5. What type of PSU is it?

    Remember to never, under any circumstances, use a cheap PSU or one that comes with a case, they will die within a few months, and I've seen them take components out with them many times.
