graphic card at around 17000 indian rupees(around 300 dollar) for my old computer
Hi..im a rookie in computer building and i have an old amd athlon x2 and my motherboard is asus m2n mx .I plan to purchase core i7 3770k and new motherboard in november ..but i want to buy a graphic card now. Can you tell me the best possible graphic card tht cost around 300 dollars which is compatible with my current system. Thank you. I hope the answer is not wait till u get a new processor.And plz dont suggest anything less than 250 dollars.. I really hope my motherboard support a graphic card that cost around 250-300 dollar because im itching to play good games now...Thankss
Tom's says that the Radeon HD 7950 Boost Edition is the best performance/cost at that price.
A few points:
The motherboard is a very small one, check and make SURE the card will fit the motherbard AND case. Most sites will give graphics card dimensions, or you can get that info from either the makers website or Newegg (I know it's a U.S. site but the data is still good).
Check the powersupply: It will need at least 500 Watts and one 6 pin plus one 8 pin PCI-E power leads to power the new card, maybe it will need two 8 pin leads, it'll depend on the card you purchase..
Do n't expect miracles: The CPU will severely hold back a GTX660Ti or HD7950!
For us to give solid advice we'll need to know the monitor resolution and if you intend to upgrade that as well.
Me, I'm running a HD7950 at stock speeds and it'll play everything I can throw at it at maximum, or near maximum settings @1920x1080 resolution, the Boost editions are even faster.
Hi, Im really glad that u reply me in details.As i said im a rookie and i barely catch wht ur saying about all those express slot,power connector stuff ..so, i check the website and these are the overview of my motherboard-- I hope u could kindly take a look at these..- Socket AM2 for AMD Athlon 64 /FX CPU
- Nvidia GeForce 6100/nForce 430
- 2000 / 1600 HyperTransport
- PCI Express X16

So do u think u would be able to tell whether 7950 will be able to fit in...and yes i plan to buy new monitor as well..now im using lcd samsung18 inch..if i could save more i plan to buy viewsonic monitor.
For the future, as long as your not editing, why not get a 3570k and use the savings to get a better GPU? I have heard that there is not as much of a difference, and the extra GPU power will help more than the CPU power. At 300$, I would go for a 7950, plus you get Bioshock Infinite and Crysis 3.
Take a look at this card, its beautiful yet powerful and just what you need
@ thisisme407: Read here, I hope it will clarify the issue about differend powersupply connectors:
And read here about PCI-E:
Sorry about the English websites, mate, but I'm not from India, perhaps someone else can help in your language. Come on, people, this is an international site, surely someone can help this guy in his native language!
I have already looked at the Asus website, which is why I spoke about the motherboard. As a uATX component it is very small, and may be installed in a small case so I'm concerned a big card will not fit. Use a tape measure or ruler to see how much space is available.
