do not wait, go for it.. may i advice you HD 7770 (Gigabyte or MSI) , you can get for 7.9K or 8.0K respectively from SMCInternational.in .. MSI was available for 8.2K on flipkart (now out of stock)
Dont buy the stock MSI one, buy the OC one.. if its not available, go for gigabyte
When HD 8750 would be introduced, mark my words.. they would cost more than 8k.. so why wait to wait some more ? go for it bud
happy gaming ;)

yep.. go for 7770 true bang for buck at 8k. the 8xxx series will cost more on launch.

dont spend extra for oc models. buy base versions and oc them yourself. the cooling solutions on base models are more than enough for mild oc.

wtf? 7xxx series have just (comparatively) been released, 8xxx series are a long way off.

unless you plan to wait for 7-9 months, get the 7770 (remember, 7xxx series launched in jan this year, it took 6 months to get to india)

IMO, don't wait.. If you began to wait, then that wait would become a never ending wait. :p
I home you can understand what I mean.

8-series won't appear before Q1 2013 and it is just 8-series. Individual GPU launch may take even more time.

Cards won't be getting smaller for sure. Get a new good chassis.

true.. i am sure someday we will have a card comparable in size to the mobo. :p

look at the HD7990. Double 7970, triple slot. gawd..

Probably not before Q2 2013, as per latest leaks.

@OP: what's your budget?

a new cabinet (even an elcheapo zebby) costs rs 400.. u want to 15 % sacrifice graphics quality for rs 400 .. not a good idea ;)

cabinets are one time buys for most of us, and if you have a cheap cabinet, its better to upgrade to a better one. if you cannot upgrade, then atleast get the exact measurement and flame-cut the cabby at any car garage.

elcheapo cabinets are a pain in the ass. dont get them. the cable management is horrible, as is the airflow.

is your mobo micro atx, or full atx?

looking at your cabinet, i say the floppy drive bay or top portion of hdd bay will be blocking the gpu.

as i said, CUT IT OFF!!! rip it off with your bare hands for ++MANLINESS++ points. srsly. chicks love that sort of stuff.

no, seriously. who uses dloppy frives anymore? remove those bays. they will be of thin metal in your case. use tin snips (thick metal cutters in shape of scissors) to cut them off.

if you need help, i'll be here. but do post a SIDE shot of your mobo inside your cabinet.

This is my cabinet...will 7770 fit in it????

Should have posted that pic first and then inquired about the gpu.
I seriously cant make out the dimensions inside the cabinet. Not much info in the site also.

@OP: You can take the measurements in the cabinet yourself.
Compare it with the dimensions for your 7770 model.
