  1. Do you need an OS included in that price? Is that after shipping? Do you include Mail in rebates in that price? Is this PC for gaming, general use, video editing...?
  2. No i dont need an os in that price and its not after shipping and it is for general use and some time games
  3. I want e8400 and vga card and optical drive is not necessary. I am currently in KSA
  4. If you use integrated graphics then you can forget about playing games, its not going to happen...not to a satisfactory level anyways. You might be able to play 2+ year older games on low settings. On your budget the E8400 is kinda out of the question. The second-hand market might be a better option for you. If you want to use integrated graphics on an intel based build, then switch to this MB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131353 The only decent integrated graphics is going to be on an AMD based build, using the 780g or 790gx chipset, which you could use with a PII x3 720, which is quite comparable to the E8400 but cheaper.
  5. If i will GA-G31m-ES2C and e8400 and any 4 gb 800 mhz ram and good casing but cheaper then whats ur choice
  6. I don't know what you are asking...you want a good cheap case? Are you in the US?
  7. No. I am not in usa. My choice is GA-G31M-ES2C, E8400 or E8500, Kingston 2 x 2GB 800MHz ram, 22x Sata Samsung DVD +/RW, WD 250GB HDD. What you think about this choice?If I buy Q6600 instead od E8400 then it will be right choice or not?
  8. Are you in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia?

    because a quick google search, the only country on the first page is Saudi Arabia.
  9. Yup I am in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
  10. guessed so, you have 1650 SAR, am I right?

    just saying because pretty much all the big US retailers don't ship overbroad and if they do it's $100+.
  11. Tell me what should i buy
    CPU:-C2D E8400 or C2Q Q6600
    MOBO:-GA-G31M-ES2C
    RAM:-G-Skill 2x2GB 800 Mhz or Kingston 2x2GB 800Mhz

    As I have said before, with your budget and if you want to play games, the E8400 is out of reach. You should go with an E5200 and overclock it, then consider an Nvidia 9600 GT or HD 4670 GPU or better. If you overclock the E5200, it will perform like an E8400, your games won't know the difference. The Motherboard you are looking at is a good option.

    Thanks. I am not very much worried about the budget I can expand it to $500. The only thing i insist is that C2D E8400 with a gud vga as u have recommended. The only reason because of which I want a E8400 is that it has 6Mb cache. I dont want special casing. Would u recommend any other vga in my budget?

    If I go with following config then what u say
    CPU:- INTEL C2D E8400
    MOBO:- GA-G31m-ES2l
    GPU:- Gigabyte GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16
    RAM:- Kingston DDR II 800 Mhz x 2
    HDD:- HDD: WD 250 GB SATA 3 GB/s
    Optical Drive:- Samsung Super writemaster 22x
    Chassis:- Normal mid tower
  23. You need to get a PSU as well. Look for a Corsair or Antec PSU if you can find one around 450w.
