So GTX 960 is finalised. Now the Zotac GTX 960 2GB gives you five year warranty and runs a little hot whereas Asus GTX 960 Strix runs a lot cooler than former but has three years warranty. So should i buy Asus as it runs lot cooler which is good for your card or buy the Zotac which runs hot but has you covered for 5 year warranty?

Also should go for 4GB version or stick to 2GB one,cause i think the card might run out of juice before it can utilise the 4GB RAM?

sorry but you cant force a GPU to do magic mon, the most you can probably do is go to BIOS and set a higher clock speed for iGPU but i doubt that's possible in a laptop, that too.. one that is a first gen Intel HD graphics

Is there a problem with New GEN Nvidia GPUs with HDTVs ?
I can't seem to get my ASUS GTX960 properly pair with my HDTV in HDMI mode.
It works fine in VGA mode , however in HDMI mode it seems to be sending signals beyond the TV's native resolution and refresh rate which it can't display.

On the other hand my laptop connects properly with the HDMI , and has GT650m.

--update--
Your PC's BIOS is locked, it does not allow any changes in frame buffer.
you cannot change anything in it at all.
Sell this PC on OLX and add some more money to what you get . Buy a desktop - custom made. - If your parents allow.

Long Live Gojira!
Guys, time has come for some upgrade. I will be playing games at 1080p (no intent of going 4K), will GTX 970 suffice with all the memory issue fiasco or GTX 980 is a better choice (if not overkill)? Also not buying this in India, will be sourcing it from US.

Both of the cards are not meant to be used for 1080p but for higher resolutions. Gtx 970 is a great card for the price. If you have the money go for the 980 as 1440p monitor prices are bound to go down. (The ideal resolution for this card).

Change your PSU first. Get GTX 950 Ti later or increase budget to get GTX 960 now.
