Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

What PSU do you have ? The black connector is called 6 pin PCI-E power connector.
If your PSU have one of those connector just connect it with the card.

If your PSU don't have that connector you need to use the convertor provided with the card.
Connect both white connector with the PSU.

BTW what PSU do you have ?

mercury 500w

my psu don't have 6 pin PCI-E power connector, So I use the convertor provided with the card :)


Connected both the white connectors to the psu and its working fine and awesome :p



Thanks topgear :p

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

That's the biggest dilemma I've also faced couple of weeks ago.

From what I came to know letter is that 9500GT DDR3 is better than 8600GT DDR3. So if you can increase your budget a bit say 4250 then get palit 9500GT 256MB DDR3 for Rs. 4000 ( Street price ). It will even outperform 8600GT 512MB DDR3 version.

8600GT & 9500GT cannot handle more than 256MB efficiently.
So it does not matter how much mem they have. 512MB DDR3 will not give you better FPS than a 256MB version.

8600GT is based on 80nm fabrication process & 9500GT is just only 65nm which means it's more power efficient & runs a lot cooler than 8600GT.
So it's OC potential is even great.

I do have one 8600GT clocked at 620MHZ/1600MHZ/1607MHZ - CORE/MEM/SHADER. So you can OC 9500GT even more than that & get better performance.

But DDR2 mem is just slower than DDR3 mem. So if you have budget prob then get 8600GT with 512MB DDR3 for sure. They just perform better than 9500GT DDR2 version.
Dude, i think abt getting 9500GT, but i have to strectch my budget by 1k.:mad:
But anyway i'll manage that.Will enquire abt that and try to get it ASAP as GTA 4 is on hold for a new gfx card(Eventhough my current gfx card handle it,i need a playable FPS of 20-25.thats y i am thinking of getting new gfx card).

EDITED :
Guys enquired abt 9500GT and most of the vendors only have had the 512MB DDR2 Version, and no one is having 256MB DDR3 Version. They said that 512MB DDR2 is way faster than 256MB DDR3 :D . And one guy,goes to top and said,DDR3 is not yet released and DDR2 is the current trend.(I hope he think abt the RAMs :D)
Was there anyone from Chennai can help me getting a 9500GT 256MB DDR3 one.

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

Spending 18k on a HD4870 and getting 2x HD4830 for 8.5x2=17k, which o u think is more better huh?

He just made it worlds best VFM card out there. :p

BTW - Is your mercury PSU came bundled with the cabinet. Then
I will recommend you to buy new PSU like CM500W extreme Power Rs. 2800.

@ thinknano

For 7K you can get Palit 9800GT which is selling For Rs. 7250.

In 7K range there is no good card from ATI compared to NVIDIA.

If you can increase your budget you can go for Palit HD 4850 for Rs. 8800.
( Best VFM card currently available )

@ comp@ddict

Palit HD 4870 512MB DDR5 Sonic is just only Rs. 15650.
Palit HD 4870 1GB DDR5 Sonic is Rs. 17800.

I think spending Rs.600 more on 2x 4850 is better choice as Palit HD4850 is selling for Rs. 8800.

@ deba_2k_1

For 4-5K get Palit HD Super 4670 With 512MB DDR3 Rs. 5250.

It doesn't need a separate power connector.

My question is that will 9500GT would be sufficient to run Underworld at good quality or I need to go for 9600GT?
Thanks!

AMD 64 4000+
ASUS M2NMX SE Motherboard (onboard GeForce 6100)
1 GB DDR2 RAM (single card)

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

My current config is P4 3.72GHz,2GB,7600GT. And i am thinking of getting a new GPU, as my current one was struggling to handle GTA4 even at the lowest settings.Previously i set my mind to buy a 8600 or 9500GT but now, changed my mind towards HD4850. I know that my proccy is a sever bottleneck for that GPU. But i will get a new C2D within a month or later(from my cousin as he go for Quad).
Will i go for HD4850? The reason i choose this was (eventhough i stretch my budget from 3k to 10k :D) its future proof. Atleast i will play the upcoming games at mid-high settings.
If i buy it and use it with my current PC(with P4), will i able to play GTA4 at playable FPS on lowest settings?
Please shed some light on this matter.

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

And dun buy a HD4850 for this config.
Rather buy a max 9600GT, not worth spending more than that.
