  1. you forgot to psot your price tag for the gpu. right now the 7750/7700 are the best low cost gaming cards. new egg this weekend having sales on the 650ti cards. you get better fps for the dollar with ati cards.
  2. the budget is needed.
    imo best bang-for-buck card would be radeon hd 7850 1gb or 2gb gddr5 vram. look for one at your local shops/wites.
  3. Budget is around INR6500 ~ $120

    What framerate can i xpect (hd7850 or 650ti) for heavy games using frostbite or cryengine at the settings which i mentioned earlier??
  4. look online at some of the youtube videoes of sites that test the 7850 vs nvidia cards.
    http://www.eurogamer.net/videos/battlefield-3-1080p-dx11-ultra-settings-gtx-660-vs-radeon-hd-7850-video
    the game clip does drop a few f bombs. what you want look at is frame rate of 650ti in most games to the 7850. then try and get the most bang from your $$$.
  5. when i say high quality m not including AA...i dont mind playing without AA wen m playin at maximum resolution...if at all i do , it will be atmost 2X FXAA not more than that

    at your budget (inr6500), you won't get a radeon hd 7850 1gb. the best cards at your budget seem to be radeon hd 6670 1gb gddr5.

    if you're willing to move up to inr 7000~ you can get a radeon hd 7750 card with 1gb gddr5 vram.

    you can also get a gts450/6750/6770 card with 1gb ddr3 vram but i don't recommend it because it's memory bandwidth is too low for the gpu.
    a radeon hd 7770 typically costs inr 8500+ and a 7850 1gb costs higher.
    as for fps, check out these articles:

    the bf3 performance benchmarks article has older drivers, so performance should be better with new amd/nvidia drivers. with a little math you can figure out fps.
  7. thank u all for ur rplies !!!

    ya i might throw in some more for a better gpu

    1 more ques. does nvidia's physX really make a any difference to gameplay physics along with all those other nvidia specific features(purevideo etc.) or all gpus handle physics in similar manner ??

    physx support is specific to nvidia cards only. amd cards don't play well with physx enabled as physx's load is shifted to the cpu. you may use an nvidia card as a seperate physx card if your motherboard has an extra pcie slot (x16/x8/x4), then you gotta pay extra for the card.
    physx's usefulness is subjective. some people like it, some don't care, some dislike it. it's up to you. try watching some gaming videos with physx enabled and disabled. better, try playing physx supported games in someone else's pc with physx enabled/disabled.
  9. ok thank u..
