No my budget is 6k. And hd 6770 is probably the best in that range. I just wanted to know if this is compatible with my system.

After spending pretty much on your processor, I think you need 7770. 7770 combines pretty well with your proc. If you want a good gaming experience, I'd suggest you go for 7770. Again, this is basically just my opinion. You might want to shell in another 2k and not regret later.

I appreciate your concern but i am really tight on budget. Cant spend a penny more than 6k.
And well I dont think HD 6770 is that bad.
Could you plz tell me if the card i mentioned is compatible with my system or not.

modern graphics card are never incompatible.all graphics card need is a pci-e x16 slot which usually every mobo has now-a-days.

BMG ftw!!
@OP: You live in India?
Then don't buy from amazon as you will lose warranty.
And don't buy XFS as you will face problem during RMA.

Yes I live in India. Ok; so i wont buy from amazon and as u say i shall go for a sapphire gpu.
But should I buy processor from amazon; I can save atleast 2000 bucks by doing so. In my opinion, the processor wont need much of a warranty as I never had a problem with any of the processors used till date. Do you guys advice otherwise /

hey topgear.
Which i5 processor do you suggest under 12 .5 k [not going to overclock]. 3450 or 2500 non k ... or something else /

As i said,I never had any problems with my processor over the years. So I was planning to get the processor from amazon to save some cash.

To be frank, When I buy stuff from India, I just order everything from sites that provide COD[majorly flipkart] because I dont have a card/net banking ac.
So basically, if I want something thats not available on flipkart or at a near by store, I just tell my brother in US to order it for me from amazon through his account.
These days, the best GPUs under 7-7.5 k have become unavailable on flipkart. None of the 6770 cards was in stock and hence I think I will be going with 6670 as I am pretty sure that locally too it wont be available.
ANY SOLUTIONS //

:sad:

^^ you are from Mumbai and still you're saying you can't find a HD6770 - try theitwares/primeabgb etc.

but what are your thoughts on 2500 vs 3450 //

And do you think I should wait for the 4th gen processors expected to release early next year as that would bring down the ivy bridge prices and also broaden my choices. Also, if i buy a mobo now, will the chipset it uses be compatible with a 4th gen processor [in case i upgrade in future].

Haswell would be around 10-15% faster than IB for sure and heard it will be based on LGA 1150 - so whether it would be compatible or not can't say right now - may be Intel will introduce a new socket with new chipset ;-) comparing clock to clock speed Core i5 3550 should be ~6% faster than core i5 2500 - so core i5 3450 will perform equal to core i5 2500.
