Graphics Cards related queries here.

the prices of colorful gpus seem unusually low as compared to those from zotac,asus etc.I wonder how they are able to offer their products at much cheaper prices when their competitors' offerings are priced significantly higher.
Cheaper cooler & likely marketing cost savings. It is a smaller company. Hardware Unboxed reviewed a Colorful 3070, was not a good cooler, worse than FE, also inferior VRMs.

Acro For Gamers is also a nice group - saw someone bought a colorful 3060Ti at 37k there on some deal on a shop but I still think that post was promo for that shop.

If someone is willing to pay 50k+ then look no further and grab a Asus graphic card. It's EVGA for India for now.
yes i have been a member of that group for a while-but most sellers are dealing with colorful products in that group and prices of other brands eg zotac tend to be higher.

My objective is to acquire a 3060ti within 45k but till now i haven't found any(from reputable brands that is).

Is a 3060 a good option in case buying the 3060ti is not practicable due to its higher price?

The performance difference between 3060 & 3060Ti is huge unlike 3070 vs 3070Ti & so on. After the initial price drop to 45k by Asus (which apparently Asus didn't honour prices for some cards for primeabgb), prices have risen up a bit. But still, 3060 is ~40k, 3060Ti is about 50k & 3070 at 55k, usually Colorful models at those prices.

I'm just waiting for the 1.5 yr old RTX 3080 10GB card to come down to its rightful price i.e 50k INR.
The best way to retire my GTX1080.

Considering MSRP is 64k, doubt 50k is realistic. 3080 10GB is already 80k though. After RTX 4000 launch, Nvidia might just retire 30xx series gradually.

Since graphics card prices have come down, is it the right time to buy or wait for some more time?
And should I get a RTX 3060 12GB or a RTX 3060 ti 8GB ?

Depends on your budget & prices you can get for GPUs, it is still fluctuating. 3060Ti is in very high demand, has gone for as low as 45k but usually 50k. 3070 starts as low as 55k, but usually 60k.

3060 is 38k or so & 6650XT recently launched at 41k:
ASUS Dual Radeon RX 6650 XT OC Edition 8GB GDDR6 Graphic Card DUAL-RX6650XT-O8G

6650XT is slightly better (gap seems big based on this, but is very game dependent). Also, I feel 3060 is better for 1440p gaming because it closes gap with 6600XT & it has DLSS (can be used at quality mode if game is too much for it at 1440p render resolution, can use FSR as well with Nvidia whereas you only have FSR for AMD GPUs):

Is this better than well established Corsair CX650M for 4970?
Recommended because it is a cheap 80+ gold. Didn't see CX series for a long time in Indian market.

CX650M is a good semi-modular option indeed. Deepcool is non-modular, IMO can pick either as 3060 or 6650XT are not too demanding, enough headroom with 650W PSU.

same is the case with Corsair TXm series psu.They seem to have all but disappeared from most stores across the country.Has corsair discontinued their production?

will a txm 550 be able to run a 3060ti or 3070?

Prefer at least 650W for 3060Ti or 3070. Considering 80% is real output, you get 440W with 550W PSU, so kind of not cutting it close.

Apparently when shortage began after corona, Corsair seems to have stopped sending much stock to India.

I can understand, India is a budget market where ppl prefer to save 500 in short term over losing 5000 in long term(seen ppl with 20-30k+ cost gfx cards using generic/lowest tier 1-2k psu). Then there is "greedy distributor/shopkeeper" who will always push the highest margin products with likely the lowest quality but never a decent margin product with good quality.

Maybe that's the reason, can't say, anyways I was just speculating.

When I was buying my parts, I was constantly getting pushed Deepcool DQM PSUs whereas I clearly stated I want NZXT C750 or MSI A750F. They were like this is more than enough & has a Gold rating with 10 yr warranty. Heck, a shop tried to push me R5 3600 for 16k saying it has 32MB cache, so is better than i5 12400 for gaming.

i am thinking of getting a zotac 3060ti twin edge (the non-oc version).A local dealer is offering one for around 52k-is that a good price for this gpu?

The non-oc variant of zotac 3060ti does not have any fan stop feature which causes the fans to stop spinning while the gpu is idle-my older 1060 6gb had this feature.Will keeping the fans of the gpu running all the time(Even when idle) decrease their longevity?
