Hi Techies,

My old faithful 9800GT silently left this world forever today:pray:. I understand it would be a great loss for me but will have to move on with life, Hence I need your valuable inputs to find a suitable replacement for the same. I am confused between Sapphire R7 240 or R7 250 both with boost 1 GB DDR5. Please let me know which would be the bang for the buck or if there are any other alternative.

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: Light Gaming and HD Movies (will try hands on GTA 5 and Cysis)

2. Which Power Supply do you have? (Be EXACT while naming the company and model)
Ans: Corsair VX450

3. What is your Max budget ?
Ans: 7500

4. Which Screen resolution will you game at (if applicable)?
Ans: any supported decent resolution within the budget.

Ans: Asus P5G41T-M LX : Core2Duo E7500 : Kingston DDR3 1333 Mhz 4gb : WD Green 500gb : BenQ V2210 : Corsair VX450 :

Please suggest as need to buy it ASAP. Also If anyone can suggest prices for these 2 at Lamington Road it would be quite helpful as I have checked the online prices.

@OP - if you intend to play GTA 5 with your present config try to get a second hand core 2 quad preferably Q9xxx cpu for around 2.5- 3k.


Right off the assembly line
Upgrade your processor before buying graphics card . Today`s game like gta 5 and farcry 4 uses more than 2 cores of the processor ,a quad core cpu is needed.
