I am interested in assembling my own PC. It is the first time I am doing it. So I want to ask about it first here. I had gone through some of the tutorials on how to assemble one. Lifehacker had a good tutorial about how to do it. Now, as I have decided what my specs should be I wanted advice. So please help me with the following doubts. Thank you in advance!
(BTW, I am buying it from flipkart.com, here is the wishlist: http://www.flipkart.com/wishlist/navking.venkat7-7098)
Q1. Will the following be a good configuration for a mid range gaming/programming and animation (AfterFX) PC?
Q2. Is there anything else which I need to buy (eg. graphics card)?
Q3. The motherboard says it has an onboard Intel HD Graphics card. What does that mean? I was adding a 2GB graphics card too. But when I this, I thought to ask first. Will it provide same performance as a 2GB NVidia GeForce?
Q4. It costs me Rs. 36861 (670 US$) and I already have 2 PCs. So I want to reduce the budget. Is there anyway I can do it without reducing the specs?
