I have a desktop with the following specs (CPU):
Intel Dual Core 2.5Ghz * 2 E5200, Intel motherboard Essential DG41RQ LGA 775 micro-ATX, 2GB DDR2 RAM, 512MB Nvidia 8400GS, 450 – 500 Watt power supply, Western Digital 160GB hard disk, Intex cabinet with included fan. Also it has 2 optical drives – LG DVD writer and Samsung DVD reader-CD writer combo.

I’m thinking of selling this at 450 US$ (Rs. 20000). I’ll buy the following components:
1) Intel i5 760 quad-core – 230 US$ (Rs. 10450)
2) Biostar TPower I55 – 260 US$ (Rs. 11900)
3) AMD PowerColor Radeon 5750 1GB GDDR5 – 170 US$ (Rs. 7500) (or comparable graphics cards – plz recommend)
4) 2 *2GB DDR3 RAM 1333 Mhz (Kingston or other brand)- 72 US$ (Rs. 3200)
5) Seagate 1TB Barracuda 7200.12 – 80 uS$ (Rs. 3500)
6) Cooler Master Chasis Gladiator – 85 US$ (Rs. 3825)
7) Power Supply Corsair VX450 – 80 US$ (Rs. 3650)
8) Corsair H50 liquid cooling system – 110 US$ (Rs. 5000)
9) LG H55N DVD writer * 2 – 30 US$ * 2 = 60 US$ (Rs. 1500*2= Rs. 3000)
10) 5.1 Speaker System – within 100 US$ (Rs. 4500-5000)
11) Logitech KB-200 – 10 US$ (Rs. 450)
12) Logitech 3 button scroll – 7 US$ (Rs. 300)

Total Cost – Rs. 57275 or US$ 1270

I would get a discount of about 270 US$ or Rs. 12000.
I intend to sell the original CPU for Rs. 20000 or US$ 450.
I have US$ 230 or Rs. 10000. I’ll get the rest within 1 and half months.

Is it a good deal? Please make some recommendations.
