specs
C2D E7200 2.6GHz
1x2 DDR2
DG965SS Intel MoBo
Nvidia 8600GT 512MB



well..i dont think it was a wise choice to buy this card, 8600gt :( aint performing good with most games even at acceptable levels

I need a card that can run the games like crysis 1 and 2, fallout2, fear2....nfs carbon/ mw, cod4 modernwarfare, world at war ...etc

they should run at a good frame rate with no $()^%^&*^
lagging during gameplay, with high visual settings at 1024 x 1280.

thnks 4 ur time and help.








my first card was a TNT2 (1999), then some nvidia 64mb card (2001), then 7600gt(2005), now an 8600GT(2008)

@ vineeth_pulari - what's your budget & what psu you currently have ?

For 4-5K range get HD 4670. Rs. 4.5K or so.
For 5-6K range get 9600Gt. Rs. 5.5K
For 6-7K range get HD4770. Rs. 7-7.2K.

Bond, Desi Bond!
for a 15k budget:

1) Zotac/Palit GTS 250: 10.5k
2) PSU: Cooler Master Extreme Power 650W for 4k-4.5k (maybe)

i'd suggest you get the HD 4770 too.. else XFX 9600gt
as far as power is concerned, go with CoolerMaster Extreme Power 600W for around 3700;
in case u need to pack for future add-ons - CoolerMaster Extreme Power 650 for 4.5k

i would really suggest you shell out a bit more now cause i think it'll be a good investment. Seeing your config, i think you could hang onto it for quite some time more & u'd want to suit it up accordingly

No to both. CM 650 and 600extreme are the same OEM- a downgraded seventeam 500w. Pretty old debate- already made my point a lot of times. So better off reading it from here:
http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/showpost.php?p=1029749&postcount=2
Stick to antec EA 430 or corsair cx400. Both worth 3.2k-3.5k and have active pfc with efficiency of 80% upto operational temps of 40 degrees celcius. Rest of the FAQ/recommendations are here in this guide which I made:

@ vineeth_pulari Just get corsair VX 450W @ Rs. 4K or so ( it can deliver upto 570W :p )

& get Zotac GTX 260 @ Rs. 10.5-11K or so.

It will be the best combination for you as the gfx card can hadle most of the games fairly well even @ 1920*1200 resolution. Have fun :p

I seriously suspect whether GTX260 would be able to run on 450W corsair PSU

As per nVidia, Minimum System Power Requirement (W) is 500W. And this card takes a maximum power of 182W.

I would suggest atleast a 550W PSU.

Wait guys, didn't you see the resolution??

1280x1024, lol GTX sereis is outta question.

Here's my suggestion:
CM 500W ExP @ 2.8k
Palit 9800GT 512MB GDDR3 @ 6.5k

laborare est orare
at 15k budget u can have a very good Graphics card as well as a good PSU

If u r a Nvidia fan, nothing can beat Zotac GTX 260 Core 216 896 MB. Its the best. price is around 10.2 to 11k. It is slightly better performer than radeon HD 4870. For a Power supply a cheap but Reliable Power supply is available, ColorSit. Their official site it http://www.colors-it.com.cn/03_products/pccase.asp?max_id_search=5.
A 600 Watt is available within 1.7k to 2k.

If u r a radeon fan, go for a Radeon HD 4870 HD 1 GB for 13 to 14k. You can also go for 4850 1 GB at 10k.
