Can anybody give me n estimate for following config. I DO NOT need a monitor, speakers, keyboard or mouse. Only the CPU dabba thingy

Here are my requirements

Core2Duo Processor
160GB SATA HDD
DVD Writer
RAM 512MB plus
Decent Graphics Card


Now Compaq is offering this for Rs 35000 including monitor , keyboard, speakers etc. The monitor is a CRT 17 inch So I wud get the deal at around 29000 minus the monitor. Is the following config decent and is the price decent too? Or shud I go in for an assembled thing
See model SR 1932IL

Going by that price list, stuff is cheaper in Delhi(Nehru Place). For eg. a 120GB Seagate here costs slightly less than the price mentioned for an 80GB in that list. But compared to intl. prices it's still a rip-off. A pair of Logitech speakers i wanna pick up cost $35 in the US and the cheapest quote i got in NP was Rs. 2800 ($62). So, if u know someone in the states who's planning a trip to India in the coming months, you'll be much better off asking him to get the stuff for you.
