Assembling My New Desktop - The Price War - Part 2

Well, this is the 2nd Part off the series I have started titled "Assembling My New Desktop" - Part 1 is titled "Deciding on Configuration and Basic Stuff" and is available here.

There's a lot of Price War and that's makes it that much more difficult to decide on the right spec. Do you sacrifice power/features for money? Well, sometimes you do have to.

After a lot of research - I could get the following price points of the different components in Bangalore, India as on 30th April, 2008. Currently the US Dollar costs about 40 Indian Rupees (1USD = 40 INR). All prices quoted in INR.
