Bond, Desi Bond!
What is the power supply that you have? And how big is your display?

My pick would be Palit GTX260 Sonic Edition (10.5k and totally worth that extra 500 bucks) or HD4870 (around 9.5k)

Why not only HD4870?

It has GDDR5 memory and AFAIK it consumes less power than GTX260?
(am I asking a n00b question? :-D )

And, may be u were talking about HD4850:lol: (which comes under 10k, not the other one)

What is your current system configuration, apart from the GPU which you mentioned.

Yes indeed... Plz provide the wattage rating of ur PSU!

And you can go for 1GB HD4870 under 10K. Its the best out there in that budget.
Go for Sapphire cards. They are official technology partners of ATI.

Well for that you'll have to open up your cabinet.

PSU or SMPS is the big square box at the top rear of the cabinet where you plug in the power cord.

The power rating must be printed on it with all other specifications.

IMO you must have a PSU above 450W, preferably 500W for a single GPU.

Just clarify me one thing...how come HD4870 comes under 10K.
Its Hd4850 which is under 10k not HD4870.

Within a span of 2 months no cards can drop their price 5k....

Sorry dude I misquoted its the HD4870--512 MB which is under 10K.
The 1GB is for 10,250/-


When I purchased my HD4870--512MB this Feb for 16.5K, Lynx price was same as that I got in Nehru Place,ND.
So I think its the current price too. I haven't gone to Nehru Place since 3 months... But I can count on Lynx prices...
