Why DDR2? Its almost gone. 5k would get you a 9600GT. Dont get the green edition. Hope you PSU is an el cheapo local brand! Otherwise you would regret it later!

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

Well change your PSU. That PSU wont suffice for the new GPU. It will certainly fry your PC in 3-6 months!
Gigabyte Superb 460W - 2.2k or Corsair CX400W.
HD4770 at 6.5k. That would be if you want to stretch it to 10k. Otherwise 9800GT at 6k is a good buy also.

Which monitor do you have?

For 10k,
Palit GTS250 512MB DDR3 @ 7.4k
Gigabyte Superb 460W @ 2.2k

or

Zotac GTS 250 512MB DDR3 @ 7k
Corsair CX400W @ 3k

As hell_storm said, DDR2 is outdated. Try 9800GT but make sure your PSU handle it. Otherwise a 9600GT @ 4.5k or a HD4670 1GB @ 4.6k will be OK.

Sorry to sound like a teacher..it would be great, if you could update your signature with system specs.

Then it is damn easy to answer questions like yours. I am sure, you mentioned you system specs..some where in this thread, but is a bit of a pain..searching for it..!

We love to help people here....!

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

Help me by a new GPU for this system

AMD athlon II X2 240
Asus M2N68 AM PLUS with PCI x16 slot
Kingston 1 GB 800 Mhz RAM ( making it 2 gb shortly )
Umax 450 watt SMPS, " without " any special power connecter for GPU

suggest me a gpu that suits this rig, havent decided budget but the GPU should be optimal mix of money and performance on this cpu.

2 additional points

1. i m planning for a full HD or more res 24 inch monitor for movies/ media centre for my room. SO may need power for HD, and an HDMI slot/ converter.

2. It should play Burnout Paradise:p , and may be GTA 4 ( would like to play if i get time :-o) and it is not for extreme gaming

Please suggest for this use and according to this rig.

Thanks
Dr. Jimit



Please suggest me some GPU for this rig...

Please suggest me some GPU for this rig...

HD4550 (Sapphire) for ~2.5K.

It does not need separate PSU connections, it pulls the power from the PCI.E 2.0 docking bay. Has VGA,DVI,HDTV connectors.

Can game at low levels.

Don't get HD4770 instead get HD4850 along with Gigabyte Superb 460W or GTS 250 with Gigabyte superb 460W.

If you don't want to play games more than 1680*1050 resolution then GTS 250 512MB GDD3 will be your bet :p

But If you wish to play games in HD resolution all the time then HD4850 Gb DDR3 should be your bet as it performs 2-3% in HD resolution with very high settings and the price is only around 7.5K. :p

BTW, here guys my a little research on HD4850 and GTs 250 ( is it kida correct ). Posted it from my another post :p

1. Upto 1680*1050 ( 4xAA ) 512 and 1GB GTS 250 can beat HD4580 1GB ( 10% and 13.5% )
2. At 1920*1200 ( NO AA ) 512 and 1GB GTS 250 can beat HD4580 1GB ( 11% and 13% )
3. At 1920*1200 ( 4AA ) 512MB and 1GB HD4850 beats GTS 250 512MB and 1GB repectively ( 2% and 1.5% )


Note : 9800GTX+ 512MB is used to measure the performance of GTS 250 :p

GTS 250 1GB consumes 7 watts more than HD4850 1GB ( GDDR3 )
GTX 9800GTX 512 MB consumes 8 watts more than HD4850 512MB ( GDDR3 )

HD4850 has DX 10.1 but more game uses physyX than directx 10.1 :p

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

so you are suggesting me to change the psu and go for
That is absolutely a mandatory!

Cards within your budget:
9800GT - 6k.
HD4770 - 6.5k.
HD 4850 - 7k.
GTS 250 512MB - 7.4k.
GTS 250 1GB - 7.9k. (Although that extra memory doesn't help much! But with a 500 bucks increase its not a bad option to get!)
And if you can keep your PSU budget absolutely aside from the 10k budget you mentioned, then:
GTX 260 Core 216 - 10.5k.
HD4870 - 8.5k-9k.

For GTX260, HD4850, GTS250 and HD 4870, I would recommend Corsair VX450W at 4k. Reliability thing! :razz:

That i think would pretty much give you a pretty good idea of all the cards within the horizon!

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

And Crysis is optimized for nVidia, and does not gel well with ATI GPUs...!
Which game isnt.
I haven't seen a game optmized for ATI for a long time. last one i saw/played was hl2 ep2

That means no need to optimize for it, as it performs good even the game optimized for nVIDIA....:p .
ATi -> kick a$$ game with AA and AF enabled
nVIDIA -> Eye-candy with no AA and AF enabled.(This is what hell_storm post proves)

What you mean, by this. Crysis is a one off debatable game. Rest of the stuff runs equally well when relative to nVidia and the game requirements it self.

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

Why Games are being optimized for Nvidia - the Reason is [ Up to HD3XXX series from ATI they dont match up with the Nvidia raw performance , but the HD 48XX series is mark for ATI but it was launched 2008 lately , so the up coming games in 2010 most of them will be optimized for ATI too ]

But the GT3XX series will be powerful than HD 58XX series ! GTX350 is double the power of GTX280 thats means think abt GTX360,380

In summary what you have put:

Some things I do not debate about anymore here:

1. Intel vs AMD
2. ATI vs nVidia (drivers)
3. Crysis runs better on.....
