Please suggest a Graphics Card

I am the night...I am...
6770 is the more viable option here considering the cost and choice of psu.

6770 and saga 500 is a good combination and more than enough for 1366x768.
Don't get 6790 as its a lot power hungry and needs two 6pin power connectors.

Msi 6770 is cheap now and costs 6.5k including taxes.
Check here.

I told you. ;) In your budget that's the most balanced config IMO. Great choice.

Good Choice :D
Dont Overclock the card as soon as you get it. Let it run for a few days. Check how it it. Then you may overclock. But my suggestion is to Overclock only after warranty runs out :wink:

Best of Luck :)

Guys just came back to town with the money to get the card. But right now, I have a new problem/query.
As in the earlier posts, I had told that I will be going for Sapphire Ati Radeon 6770HD. Now my tension is whether my motherboard will support it?

I have a Intel Classic series DG33FB motherboard with 4 GB of ram at 333.3Mhz.
Will it be risky to go for the upgrade?
Please reply friends

the graphic card will be 100% bottlenecked by processor unless it's of some E84xx series...

it's because i faced heavy bottlenecks and same problem with my C2D E7200 @ 3.2GHZ, but now no issues with my Core i5 :)

with C2D - Crysis 2 @ 1366x768 Ultra settings dipped to 12 FPS with GPU utilisation of only 33%

Buy a HD 6670 and enjoy gaming with medium-high settings with full utilisation.

Buddy, first of all, HD 6790 is more power hungry than a HD 6770 but it does not mean that it is very very power hungry. Even a good 450W PSU can handle it and in guru3D review of HD 6790, 450W is recommended. The maximum power consumption of HD 6790 in full load is 104W and the total system power consumption is 245W along with a 3.75 GHz, overclocked i7 965.
So HD 6790 is actually the best buy within the budget. Apart from gaming FPS, it will also offer better tessellation performance than HD 6770 as it is based on new BART architecture.

2ndly C2D 8500 is a pretty processor and there is very little chance of bottleneck with a HD 6770 or HD 6790.

You can use "FRAPS" to know fps or "MSI Afterburner" to log the temperatures as well as FPS in game .

Show some pics :)
