    You posted in the wrong section. Moving the thread to Hardware Q&A.

    And please don't post your e-mail address in the public all time. People will take it as spam.

    You need to just buy the original games. Thats it. In India, everyone plays CS and CS:S. So, I'll suggest you to get about 10 steam IDs and order 10 copies

    I don't have any answers about this.

    Every Cyber Cafe is required to maintain a register/log for that.

    Would depend upon the rules and regulations of the locality where you are opening the Cafe. Some markets close at 7pm, some don't.

    Regarding games, I'll suggest you to register for 10 steam IDs for each computer through Steam Cafe Program and then buy 10 copies of CS & CS:S which are Valve games. You might also like to buy the Orange Box.

    You'll be needing a very good Gigabit Ethernet switch. A 24-port Gigabit Ethernet switch costs about Rs.10k.

    Regarding the server. Please tell what will you be doing on it? Running it 24x7? Simply managing the clients? Or hosting games? (games can be hosted by the people on game PCs itself) Or would you also like to pop-in to play games with the people from your server itself?

    One thing is for sure, it surely needs a strong multi-tasking processor.

    Set aside 50k for the server.

    Other people will be able to suggest this better.

    Now we have 4 - 0.6 = 3.4lac for 10 machines.

    Quote Originally Posted by systechsolution View Post

    CS 1.6 is Rs.270. CS:S is Rs.500. (I got them for this price, long time ago)

    Quote Originally Posted by systechsolution View Post

    You mean a Cyber Cafe management software?

    Quote Originally Posted by systechsolution View Post

    Few from Internet shops; some from retail.

    Don't forget you'll be also needing a strong UPS too. One more question, do you only have one floor of 150 sq. feet or multiple?

    AMD System Specification

    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 635 (2.9 GHz) 5K
    Mother Board: GA-880GM-UD2H 5K
    RAM: G-Skill 2GB (1333MHz) (With Heat Sink) 2.3K
    Hard Disk: Western Digital 1TB (Green Edition 32 MB Cache) 1.7K
    Graphic Card: XFX Radeon HD 5770 HD-577X-ZNFC 8.9K
    Cabinet: Cooler Master Elite 360 2K
    Power Supply: Cooler Master 600W eXtreme Power Series 3.4K
    Monitor: Acer S231HL 23” LED 10K
    Keyboard: Microsoft Or Logitech Normal Keyboard 0.5K
    Mouse: Razer DeathAdder 2K
    CPU Cooler: Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus 2K
    Head Phone: Normal headphone Under 0.2K

    Total : 43,000 X 4 = 1,72,000/-


    First Guys Suggest Me This System Will Work Then I Will Post For Intel Ones...

    Avoid Cooler Master. It sucks.

    Regarding Hard Disk, WD Blue performs better than WD Green.

    A normal 22" LCD Full HD monitor like BenQ G2220 for 7.5k is good enough. You are losing value here. Going for a cheaper monitor would let you invest in a better Graphic card like GTX 460.

    Quote Originally Posted by systechsolution View Post

    Thats my mouse and it is definitely very good, imho.

    If you want to save money, go for Logitech MX518 for 1.4k

    XFX to be avoided as it's RMA is handled by Rashi Peripherals. And going for GTX 460 is a must if you are ready to spend 42k on a single machine. (which tells me that you also want to offer graphic intensive games)

    The configuration posted by toad_frog09 was decent. You can simply add the gaming mouse of your choice or an additional 2GB DDR3 RAM to it.

    WD 500GB Blue @ 2K
    BenQ G2220HD @ 7.5K

    CM Elite 310 @ 1.5k OR NZXT Gamma cabinet @ 2k
    Logitech Media keyboard @ 0.4k
    Basic Headgear @ 0.2k
    Razer Deathadder @ 2k or Logitech MX518 @ 1.4k

    TOTAL ~42k
