    as i have mentioned earlier, I have increased my budget to Rs. 7000/- (!!!). I have found an XFX GeForce FX5600 for Rs. 6250 and 5700le for 7500. I want to play Prince of Persia:Sands of time at a decent frame rate at 1024X768 resolution. What card should I choose so as to be free for next 6 months.

    i think this should be on the graphics card sticky. anyways if your budget is around 7k then i suggest you go blindly for the Gainward vanilla 6600 128 Mb (the last time i checked its price it was available for 7300/-) ...i dont knw if it was the agp or pci-e version though .. check it out !

    according to me go for a cheap card save up and after about 6-10months go in for a better card (I call it "BUYING URSELF TIME !!!!")!!!

    + u'll have a variety or latest cards to choose from !!!!!

    Rs.7500 seems rather high for a 5700LE. PM me if you want to know where you can get it for well under 6k in Kolkata.

    Don't worry - there's no shady deal involved and I have nothing to do with actual sales. It's just that I know some good sources that have served me well for several years. They are perfectly legitimate.

    I bought an XFX nVidia FX 5700 LE 128 MB ( 8X AGP support), card about 6 months back for INR 3650. The price you have quote is INR 3850 x-tra!! You can get that crad much cheaper these days.

    :arrow: Please give us some details about your mother-board / Does it support PCIe?

    I find a new line up of cards every six months. When I bouth my nVidia FX 5700 LE card, it was moderate and good card then. Now its an almost outdated card in my standards.
    If one is to wait another 6months for better cards -- he has to wait every six months for better deals..

    Just go for the best card now, use it up for a few months.. say 10-12..
    Sell it off for a decent price, invest and buy a better one..
    That's my policy.
