    What exactly do you need help with ? You already know which card you want to buy, you have a fixed budget, and you live in a city where I've heard the computer hardware market is pretty good.

    With 5000/- I think you'll be able to do better than an FX5200, maybe an FX5600, though I'm not sure of current prices for this card.

    Also pls remember that an 8x card will not run at its full potential in a 4x slot, but it will still be a big jump from your current S3 Savage. Good luck.

    Wait till the Geforce 6600 hits the indian market. You should get it at the price of an FX 5700.

    the 6600 will first hit the indian market as a pci-e card.so no point waiting.agp versions will come later.and also get a GF4Ti,only a DX8.1 card but its much more powerful than the 5600 or 5200.and also AGP8x and AGP4x dont make much of a difference.the 4x bus barely gets saturated.

    a radeon 9600pro@8.5 k will be a better choice.but ppl please be sensible.this guy wants a card at 5k.so a GeForce4Ti will be a good choice.
