Help me buy a new graphics card

i want to buy a new graphics card

my range is rs 3000

i have a PCI Express Slot

^2nd hand or new one. new one at your budget is gonna be the lowest end from the graphic cards.

damn man 3000 and for a PCIX card...

what u wana play on a 3000 rs card??

gta vice city?

or super mario?

may be dave!! :P

In 3k, a decent 2nd hand graphic card can be bought.

Can u explain the meaning of decent. Brother now a days games are too much graphically intense they even obseleted the 7 Series.

At least raise a little to get a decent card Like XFX 9600GSO to support the mainstream games of current gen. Its around 8000 price mark.

You can get XFX 8400GS as well but I cant say it help ur rig to boost the performance.

By the way what are the specs of ur PC ? Can u please share it with us?

Guys guys guys, im not a gaming khuar, and i know gta vice city , super mario and dave does not require a graphics card and i dont even wanna play high end graphic games and waste my time and money. My previous ASUS mobo was awesome as it had a built-in ATI Radeon so i never needed a graphics card. Too sad its main chipset burnt. Now the new mobo sucks and i even cant get more than 50 fps on CS. average is 30 fps, while previous mobo never gave me below 70.

My Specs are

P4 3 Ghz

1 GB DDR2

Mobo name i dont remember ( coz i dont like it) but it has a PCIX slot

if 3K is not enough i can manage 4K

the thing is , i am a noob in this graphics card thingy so help me out please. Used/ new whatever you guys suggest me i will buy it.

nvidia geforce 6800 would be good ... If you really wanna play CS and other games like farcry

u can easily find used 8500gt under 4k budget...go for it

You can get a GeForce PCX 8400GS 512MB (128-BITS) DDRII under 3500, and on Galaxy it is available for 3300. I highly recommend this.

BTW, it is a excellent card, both for gaming and working.

Here’s a review: http://reviews.cnet.com/graphics-cards/xfx-geforce-8400gs-graphics/4505-8902_7-32637203.html

I personally guarantee you, you’d be completely satisfied with it.

go for a used 7600gt or 8500gt

well if you some how can manage about 4500 Rs then go for HD 3650. a very good card. you can play assassin's creed, GTA IV (on mid settings) and almost all new games on low to mid settings on 1024* resolution plus watch HD movies on your pc without putting too much weight on your processor.

farcry 2 on hd 3650

8500gt

nvidia geforce 6800

8400GS

7600gt

hd 3850

2 votes for used 8500gt so i will buy this one next week.

thanx guys :)
