Quad cores are not good for gaming, atleast right now. Most games don't make proper use of additional 2 cores. E6850 is the ultimate for games, unless you want to do video decoding, Photoshop etc more than gaming. Also, 8800GTS is good card but I would say go for GTX, its more expensive but much ahead of GTS in performance. Btw both cards cost 25/30k+ in India. Why don't you tell your uncle to send it from US. E6850/8800GTX is the killer combo for games and should get you through safely for another couple of years, atleast until 45nm becomes mainstream.

Go for a 22" Screen rather than 19" . LG has these sweet new panels which have 5000:1 contrast ratio and 4ms response time i think. They look pretty sexy. If you are still planning to go with a 19" screen, then get a Samsung. I am currently using a 19" Samsung monitor which is amazing. Performance is brilliant, response time is pretty fast too. Its HDCP Compliant and has DVI too.

im not going for the 22" for the simple reason tht my pc is gonna be right next to my tv which is anyways 40" and its not necessary and will be a bit too much .... (was gonna go for a 17" lcd but the diff in price between 17 and 19 is like 1-1.5k

I'll tell you what I've done on the graphics card front. In May this year, I assembled a Core2Duo based PC with a SLi capable motherboard (Asus) and bought a 8600GTS for approx 9K from Malaysia. (This was the top of the line MSI 8600GTS Overclock edition that came with Company of Heroes free :jumpy: ). I am now planning to buy another MSi 8600 GTS in December and SLi my rig. The performance would be quite staggering without the blow to my bank balance that the 8800 series would have been, plus I get to stagger the expenditure thanks to SLi.

 

Oh and if you want to connect the sound output to a HT receiver, then you should use the optical out port on the sound card. Most new MoBos have high quality onboard sound processors so they should have an optical out somewhere below the PS/2 ports.
