1. What is the intended use for this graphic card ? Gaming or workstation work? (Name few Games or applications are you going to run)
Ans: Mostly Gaming. Use it to run games like Fifa, LoL, Rocket league etc. Don't really run the higher end games.

2. Which Power Supply do you have? (Be EXACT while naming the company and model)
Ans: Corsair CX 430

3. What is your Max budget ?
Ans: 7-10k, would prefer a cheaper one though, as I might end up getting a new system soon (half a year-1 year)

4. Which Screen resolution will you game at (if applicable)?
Ans: 1920*1080

5. What are your current computer specifications ?
Ans: i3 3220, 8 GB RAM Ripjaws, Gigabyte B75m-D3H mobo

I had a Sapphire HD 7770, but it died about a couple of weeks ago. This system is around 2.5 years old, and I don't wanna purchase a new system for some time as I already have a decent Laptop (Lenovo y50) and will probably be moving this year in July/August. Mostly use this system for gaming with my brother.

Should I just go for an old second hand graphics card? Or a low end one (~4k). Or get a like for like replacement?

Thanks!

No other cheaper GPU will be as power efficient while giving good performance compared to 750 Ti.

Not necessarily bothered by the performance, it should just be able to play the 3 games I mentioned lag free (not with the highest settings, I almost always keep most setting like Shadows, Anti aliasing etc. off with FPS locked to 60), anything else is a bonus. I just don't want to spend much and then buying a completely new system 6 months later.

That said, if the cheaper GPUs won't be able to run it, will get a 750 ti.

What about these -

GALAX GeForce GT730 PCI-E 2GB DDR3 128Bit w/VGA/DVI-I: Amazon.in: Computers & Accessorie

Amazon.in: Buy GALAX GeForce GT 730 EXOC PCI-E 1GB DDR5 64Bit w/VGA/DVI-D/HDMI Online at Low Prices in India | GALAX Reviews & Rating

I don't have any idea about the quality of GALAX products though.

get the zotac gforce 730-its a better choice than an equivalent galax product as zotac is a reputed brand and provides 5 yrs warranty on its gpus.
