I am looking to buy a new GPU, but my budget is short, I am not a pro gamer I want the GPU for my 3D projects and rendering so DX 11 is not a big issue. I am leaning toward the sparkle 9800 GT from http://www.iamextreme.net/product.php?ProductId=50. as it is priced 7500/- and its 1 GB. other option is GTS 450 http://www.iamextreme.net/category.php?CategoryId=10&SubCategoryId=23 which is priced 11500/-
I can not look at the GTS 250 as its 512mb(less ram means limitation in GPU rendering) version is for 9000/-
My question is if we neglect the DX11 advantage which card is better in Price / Performance Ratio?
