Graphics card suggestion

In a previous thread I addressed the issue of my Sapphire HD 7870 dying. Now I need your valuable suggestion in deciding which GC to buy. My budget is 15k. I am based in Kolkata. My PSU is Corsair TX850 V2. I want to play games at 1920x1080 at the moment but am open to suggestions for the next higher resolution to be on the safer side. My other PC specs are listed in my sig.

Thanks

Take a look at nvidia gtx 960 which is the prefect full hd card. During testing it gave 60fps in all the games. The price is a bit on upper side Rs17-18k but well worth it. Also, it would come down in1-2 months if you can wait.

Secondly, if you want to buy now then a amd r9 270x would serve your needs in your budget. Or consider a used r9 280x that would be on par or better than gtx 960 in raw gaming performace.

What is the use in comparing GTX960 with R9-285 as their Bus width are different. 128bit vs. 256bit
That's doesn't make much difference if you game at 1080p because of the compression tech used by the green team. The problems arises with multi monitor setup and 4k gaming.

Argument doesnt make sense, that way there can be no comparison between any of the cards from each camp then. Which is not how it works. R9 290X has a 512bit memory bus, GTX 970 has 256 bit bus width and still bit faster in some games and is a performance rival.

960 is available in MD only. Vedanta and Eastern Logica can procure it on order. MD quoted 17k+ for 960. 960 AMP is 18 something k + tax. Some other prices I picked up are R9 270 X Dual X - 13700+ (MD) R9 280 X Vapor X - 20700+ (Vedanta) 20800+ (MD). MD (Palash) said he can negotiate.

Dhonyobaad! :)

The cards at MD, Zotac, right??

17k+ for 960, including taxes??

Yes ZOTAC with a 5 year warranty I think. 17k+ means 17k + tax (5% I think).

Good deal IMO, as i refered earlier, thats the ZOTAC Vanilla one. But as we know one can overclock the f#k outta this card, so bascially a 19K card which can push pixes hard at 1080p without breaking a sweat, just have to be careful with AA though, but with MFAA its easier now, I tested MFAA with some games recently..its a good job done.

^How's the performance of the gtx 960 when its not OC'd?Is it capable of running games at 1080p smoothly at its default clock speed?

You will have to summon a few loyal partners of yours to mad search a true vanilla on that 960 in market. All, yes ALL board partners have their cards on gallery with boosted clocks in both memory and shader. Which is good enough for 1080p gaming. Further OC'ing it is the fun side of it. I dont think the Nvidia card with all default clock speeds will be easy to find.

Look it up.
