My advice would be to dump the idea of the core2duo that is what is limiting your memory capacity. Go with a Xeon instead since it is a server chip the chipsets support higher memory amounts. Lookin around I cannot find any machine I would support to fit with in your budget. For a quad core Xeon, 16 GB registered DDR3 1333 memory, and a 1U server chassis with motherboard and power supply the best I can find is right around 46,480 INR.

Here are some links to the items of the type I am refering to.

Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820134978 (remember you need two of these for 16GB)

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819117223

Newegg.com only ships to U.S. customers, there is no Newegg for people living in India. I'm not entirely sure of where to go to find retailers that ship to India...

Thanks a lot, Baltboy for ur advice on CPU.
I am planning to buy 10 such machine. But due to bugget I can only go with 4 Xeon server, priced between Posted Image40,000 to Posted Image55,000 . And 6 low cost 8GB memory supported board at this stage.
I have to look for dealer in India.
