    Graphics card for doom3 eh ! @5k u will get a
    Radeon 9550SE 4.7k
    Nvidia fx5200 3.1k
    Geforce Ti4200 4.9k
    Geforce Fx5700Le @ 5.4k

    I am posting the prices, though personally wudnt recommend any of these cards. i would rather save up more cash and get a 9600pro or Xt @ 8.5 or 10.5 respectively. A 9800pro @ 14.9k is also a gr8 price/performance option.

    For 15k the best card in the market right now is the Radeon 9800pro. Make sure u have a 400W PSU. :) I have a Club3d 9800pro @ 14.9k and it gives the best price/performance ratio !

    Sell the old stuff in the bazaar @ 1k, 1.5k and 7-8k respectively.

    You are not likely to get a good card for Doom3 at 5k. Of all those suggested by blade, only the Ti can run the game decently but none of these are future proof. Why buy a card that will need upgrading in 6 months. Get a 9600XT, it will last longer and give much better gameplay.

    6800 ??
    yeah it came out in agp8x first
    but it aint gonna cost u any less than 18-19k for a nU version of it
    put in another 6k and ull get a 6800gt

    the GeForce 6 serias has no pro, either vnilla or Ultra, & GT

    I would say really go for a 6800 nU, 10% less performance then GT & belive me U can play any game for the next 2.5 years at 1024X768 with 85 Hz & 2XQ AA & AX Anis, remember no matter how much better Card U get U can never play more then your refresh rate of your monitor & usuall they don't go higher then 100HZ for a 17" Monitor which is the norm these days & LCD are still costly unless U decide to give up 17" CRT for a 15 LCD

    It is available in AGP8X, so U can easily, then 6800 nU from MSI for 18k, is a really good product for india, as it holds up for 2.5 years more to come, U will need to chage your gfx card only after longhorn, cos with longhorn the next DriectX will come, so before that for 2+ years games will be made in SM3.0 or DirectX9 & OpeGL 2.0

    A GT over a 6800nU is not recomended here in India, reason, u can play just about any game U can on a 6800nU as U can play on 6800GT, but Y pay 6k more when it makes difference only in benchmarking

    as long as all the games are playing smooth stick with your card, over a 6800nU the GT provides only performance, but U won't miss it with 6800nU either, U will get reasonable performance even with 6899Nu for nest 2.5 years

    The GTs a better deal than the NU provided u have the dough, btw freshseasons why dont u consider a Ati 9800pro for once. Try it and u probably will forget that the Fx series ever existed ! I switched frm the Fx series to the 9800 pro.

    (Gxsaurav will probably come along telling u that he switched frm Ati to Nvidia. LOL)

    Huh? Why would anyone need to upgrade a 6800 just because longhorn comes out? For LH, all you need is a DX9 compliant card, which 6800 is (and more).
    Even a 9200SE will work properly. The GMA900 is actually certified for LH, despite not even having hardware vertex shaders.

    Any 6800 card will get you past at least 2 years.

    Woaah ! which make are these cards ? 30 k is almost twice the amount one would pay for a 9800pro ! Either your vendor is trying to cheat you or he's probably gone bonkers ! :twisted:

    no card till date as i redall has cost 47k
    the first is the x800 native pci-e version from asus
    thats a record
    that too cuz i think new cards are introduced while the one previously introduced were not given then time to fade out
    here ofcourse the problem being between agp8x and pci-e
