Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

k suggest some name
brand and series

in the mid range
just for a little gaming
and dvd movies
Please change your smps, and don't blame us if it blows and take everything along with it.

We also don't know your resolution, but let say its 1680x1050.

Palit/Sapphire/XFX HD4850 @ 6.8-7k
Palit 9800GT 512MB GDDR3 @ 5.8k
Palit 9600GT 512MB GDDR3 @ 4.7K

In descending order of performance. I suggest 9600GT, any higher and you may blow that smps.

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

@ @ deblokmaitra88 - get what tkin has suggested with a good psu like corsair VX450W @ Rs. 4K or Gigabyte superb 460W around Rs. 2.5K

If you don't want to change your PSU then & just needs a little gaming and good dvds movie playback - a HD4670 @ Rs. 4.6K should suffice for you or you can grab Nvidia GT240 ( palit/zotac ) around Rs. 5.5K.

If you can wait a little more you can get HD5670 - they already released and has DX11 support :p

XFX HD4850 @ 6.3k BEST BUY IMHO if ur PSU is gud enuf..

else get 9800GT, OR wait for HD5760 and buy it, will be priced same as GT250 @ 5.6k
 
Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

Turn off PCIe graphics card and use onboard graphics only ?
What about using onboard graphics for daily desktop usage and turning on a powerful ( and power wasting ) graphics card only when neccessary ( gaming ) ?

- Is that possible ( e.g. by using some suspend tool to suspend / power off a PCI(e) device ?
- Would the power consumption of the suspended graphics card really be zero ?
- Is there someone who already did that ?

You can not do that on the fly as you are suggesting, you need to turn PC off, switch the display connector and restart the system for the changes to take effect and as long as the graphics card is connected to the PCIe port it will consume power(actually nVidia Hybrid graphics does that but the feature is available in only select- now extinct nVidia chipsets).

I hope that answers all your questions, and if power consumption is an issue to you then wait a few weeks and get the HD5670, this is a good home theater GPU but has very lower power consumption.

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

hey when the HD5760 released????
Its released in abroad a couple of days ago, it should take a few weeks more.
This is a bad card, has 400 shaders so performs worst than HD4850 in same price range, and about DX11 you can't use many DX11 feature with 400 shaders, try playing DiRT2 with this GPU(Sarcasm).

Hey Guys.

I've bought a biostar A780G motherboard which has inbuilt graphics card i.e. "ATI RADEON 3200 HD" and also hav purchased an "NVIDIA 9400GT GRAPHICS CARD". So i just want to know whether i can operate from both the graphics card and wil it b of any good i mean will the performance increase or will remain the same. Also i want to get the software for ATI and if my query is possible i mean using dual graphics cards is possible then i wud also want to kno the procedure of installing and using them.

PLs Help.
Thnx in Advance

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

You will not be able to use both graphics chips at the same time ... you have to select any one of as the primary display in bios.

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

here mostly techcom is available and they say its better than others
Techcom cards? Better stay out, the GPU isn't the only part of a Graphics card, and lets say its safe to assume that TechCom cards will use inferior material(for the capacitors etc) that may burn the GPU.
