    Well it definitely depends on which MOBO and Processor you want to buy, but i think the main difference between AMD and Intel is the Price Difference.

    Many people i have observed that they say AMD IS NOT GOOD, and Intel is the best, including some Engineers, but they say because they have not used it.

    AMD offers their processor at very cheap price and is for common people and Intel processors are very expensive, that's it.

    I 100% agree with your comment brother..

    I too have faced this problem when i was trying to sell a 5200+ processor in a local service store.. They said no one buys AMD Products they are bad, so we can take it at Rs800 only.. This happened to me just few weaks back and another one service engg told that AMD does not have quad core processor..

    The thing why People are like this because, people use to see only Intel Adds everywhere in the city and All desktop computer brands like HP, Compac, HCL etc sell Intel Products only.. Only Dell does AMD products..
    AMD must step forward in advertising their new Products to the people..

    Intel does their wired ooooo ooooo adds... Hate it....

    @Rajan,
    I'm a developer in java, so my system should able to run java IDE (eclipse),and other high end java tools and software's, play blue ray videos without any problems/delay , should support some good moderate level graphics games like resident evil 4 (even though i play rarely) and for general purpose like downloading movies from torrents and browsing.

    I can relax my budget, if the system is really worth for some more thousands than 20K.

    thanks!

    sry for the delay mate..


    Processor:AMD Athlon 2 240 : Rs2500
    Motherboard : Biostar A785GE : Rs 3500
    Memory : 4GB DDR2 Memory (Corsair, kingston,gskill) : Rs4500
    HDD : 500GB Seagate : Rs2200
    iBall cabby and PSU : Rs2000
    Optical drive : Rs1000


    Thats basically it. Good enough for your work, though i don't know what kind of hardware you need for Java tools. Is there anything specific ? Resident evil 4 is a pretty old game, so you can probably play it at decent setting on the IGP...

    Arrow 25-30K machine

    thanks Rajan for your valuable suggestion,

    But now After a real thought and now i come with a second decision to go with the machine which will provide me gaming performance also, and I'm now ready to spend 25-30 k.

    i also planned to get a graphics card in a month or two. so now confused in choosing between the motherboard and processor between amd and intel. many are suggesting to go with the intel since amd has heat related problems and will start giving problem in three years .

    below are my system details to go with

    HDD - 1 TB -- 3350 (500 gb -2100, so i like to go with this)
    ram 4 GB -- 5200
    optical drive -- 1100

    points to clarify

    1.some good cabinet which can go ease with the heat related problem since I'm already facing it. (i thought to go with the zebronice gamer cabinet but dont know the price model ). if it is real worthy im ready to spend around 2500., not more than that. and also eager to know this model price Zeb-Xclio 1000 .
    i suppose this cabinets will come along with the psu, no need to invest separately, please correct me if i'm wrong. i have no idea in choosing this.

    2. processor Intel or Amd , i have choosen
    Quad Core Q8300 ,2.5 GHz ,1333MHz,4 MB,LGA OR Phenom II Quad X4 - 945 3.0GHz, 8M, AM3 (both are nearly equal in performance as per CPUbenchmarks (PassMark Software - CPU Benchmarks - List of Benchmarked CPUs)).

    3. motherboard model number for the above processor which should support graphics card which i will buy in a month or two.

    You may perhaps reject my suggestion.

    But you are now going for a configuration that is neither down here (low end) nor up there (high end). In the long run, you will find that you spent a considerable amount on something that became outdated very quickly (in less than 2 years). At that time, you will be loathe to sell your system for a paltry (5-8 K) for a better config because you will probably feel that you have not got your money's worth.

    So my advice is either buy a very simple rudimentary and cheap configuration just now that will suffice your greater needs (forget games and stuff) or increase budget and buy a system that you will be happy with for at least 4 years.
