Hi! Guys,
After a lot of research, I formulated 2 builds for the gaming rig I am planning to buy. Benevolently help me decide (with reasons) which of the 2 configurations is a better option

Local Area Network (LAN) Card – Included in Motherboard

Random Access Memory (RAM) – Corsair Value Select 2x1GB DDR2 667MHz RAM: Rs. 9,000

Mouse and Keyboard – Logitech G1 Gaming Desktop: Rs. 2000

The first build will be better for gaming
The second build will be better in anything other than gaming

Personally, I would go with first build.

Anyway the 8600 ultra has not been released yet, but I don't know if they have released it early in India !!

As Maroon1 said, the first build will be a little better at gaming as it has the better graphics card.

Me, I'd go for the second build. The 8600 is a little less powerful than the 8800, but not everyone has to have every graphic setting on max. The extra real estate of the 19" vs. the 17" is a factor in that as well.
