    got 18k at hands. Strictly 18...cant increase the budget.

    i want a PSU
    a monitor
    a GPU

    for PSU, im getting an offer of zebronics Pro 550 [HEC OEM] for 1.6k [yup its 2.9k thing]. Review says it far better than CM EP series.SO PSU is fixed.

    for the rest 16.5k i want a monitor and a GPU
    im thinkin bout sam 2233s[10.5] and 4770 MSI[6.5]
    hear 4770 arnt available now. is that true?
    already own an 8800GT on my other system. so dun wanna settle for a gpu slower or same to that like 9600GT or 9800GT.

    if 4770 MSI was readily available, i wudnt have a second thought.
    any other options guys?

    dOm1naTOr your selected combo can work in full HD videos better and acewin suggested combo can work better in gaming.

    I would say 2233SW + 4770 is a nice combo, go for it. Just c that ur PSU is powerful enough to handle 4770.

    I suggest you don't upgrade your 8800GT. It's not all that slow is it?
    Use the money to get a better PSU and monitor.

    Get the 2233SW and MSI 4770 for 6.5k, ur PSU can handle the system without any hiccups for sure.

    i was about to confirm on Palit HD 4850 512 GDDR5 dual sonic at lynx, but with tax and shipping, its 9.7k...
    isnt it too much for a 4850, even if it competes with 4870 easily?

    and btw, my 8800GT works gr8. It has got a dual slot cooler, and GPU OC gr8, even if memory cant be ushed beyond 50Mhz higher[no cooling for memory]. But ive ot 2 desktops.
    need a card to get it running, as its got no IGP, and has a 15" old CRT.

    isnt a GTS 250 @ 8k better vfm than 4850@4870 for 9.7k ?

    Dude. Came to know that AMD has announced huge price cuts on HD48xx series cards. Just wait for another week or two. Don't hurry.


    My suggestion would be to wait for 45nm cards.

    Price cuts are upto $50. If that translates to 2k here, it still will be a HUGE difference. Even I'm playing the waiting game.

    Maybe a couple more 40nm cards are on the horizon from AMD, hence the price cut or maybe, just maybe it wants to compete with GTX260 C216/GTX275.

    found a new brand "manli" at TE selling 4850 1GB for 8k and 512 for 7.5k.
    also 4870 1GB for 10.5k. but the cooler looks fragile for 4850. 4850 looks good with heatpipes.
    got 2 yr Indian warranty.

    btw pricecuts are always welcome. just checked newegg prices and 4850 starts at 104$ + rebates.
    so can be sub 100$. wow

    ^^now, you know why AMD stopped HD4770. Looks like, they want to clear HD4850 stock and take it out of the market.

    but by the time 4850 stocks gets cleared, re-releasing 4770 wont be a good idea, or they shud release it for ultra cheap like..to replace 4670.
