i currently have a 6850 + i3 2120. This setup Crawls in crysis 3.
I have already upgraded my powersupply to seasonic s12II 620 from 2 year old cooler master thunder 500w psu.
My next upgrade will be a i5 2500 + 250$ gpu.
The gpu i was going to get was the 7950 Bosst.
But for the same price gtx 760 is slightly better.
Is there any SENSE in waiting for ATI 8xxx series rumoured to release Q3 2013.

Please suggest a Decent Monitor for this setup.
I am leaning towards an IPS monitor. I dont want any ghosting. I just want a monitor with minimal ghosting(LCD or LED(preferred)).
My budget is 170$(10000 Indian Rupees) and need 1080p.

I'm not a big pro about this , but so to speak the new 8xxx series in theory should blow the 700 series out of the water, that is of course if amd fixes some minor issues here and there! Consider this the 7950 Boost and the GTX 760 are approx the same price, being that the 760 is newer, so when AMD release the 8xxx mid-range it should be a lot stronger, but who knows , companies are known to disappoint. Myself I am impatient so I will be purchasing a GTX 760, but if not I would probably wait for the 8xxx series to get more competitive pricing and more choices. AMD is rumored to fix their crossfire issues so its most likely the next cards will have a very good crossfire system. Also consider Next-Gen consoles graphics will be designed with AMD graphics in mind.

So all together its your choice, and concerning the monitor I have no clue! XD

I'd take the GTX760. You may end up waiting a very long time and being disappointed. You definitely have the right idea with IPS. For minimal ghosting, I'd recommend an ASUS model with Trace Free. Set it to 40 and you'll have little to no trails and still have exceptional quality colour.

yeah I agree I'm going for the gtx 760 too, i just wish nvidia would include more VRAM as everyone is starting to get scared!

I have used only amd Graphic cards till now(good experiences till now)
4850>6850>(8950??)or 760
Also the price difference between 7950 and 8950 is something to consider.

Will the i5 2500 give me any gains in gaming ?? How far is it from current gen 4xxx series haswell in gaming??
I have an am3+ MOBO Lying around with a Phenom 2 x4 955
Should i wait for steamroller.(AMD is just killing me)

This has been a very eventfull year till now..with consoles and haswell and steamroller(expected 30% gains)
My inner conscience tells me to wait but my gut tells me to spend.

Best solution

Sandy Bridge is same as Haswell for gaming (with the obvious exception of the integrated graphics). I wouldn't get too excited about Steamroller. They said 30% gains about Bulldozer and look what happened there. By the time Steamroller launches, Intel will be launching Broadwell. I'd stick with your plan and grab the i5 and GTX760. Don't worry about it being nVIDIA - it's not gonna let you down. Near enough GTX670 performance - it's an awesome card.

Thanks for all the replies.....(all of them were helpful)

Please suggest a monitor for gaming
I dont want to spend more than 10000 Rupees(150$) on it
it should be a decent 1080p monitor(with no ghosting)
I dont care much of colour repoduction.
But IPS panels look really good and LG has released some cheap IPS panels(i dont want them to lag)
Recommend any Monitor which has low response time and 1080p LED (IPS is optional)

How much for an ASUS ML239H? The fastest IPS models will be ASUS because of Trace Free (ASUS's pixel overdrive tech which adjusts voltages applied to each pixel to accelerate transitions). Forget millisecond measures of response time - no IPS panel will be advertised below 5ms but those numbers are useless - there's huge variation between 5ms panels interms of trails. tftcentral.co.uk is excellent for monitor reviews and uses high-speed photography so you can see exactly how monitors compare for trails.

ML238h(Did not findML239h price) perfectly fits my budget
I hope it does not give ghosting probz(with trace free set to 40)
Thanks for the replies

Glad to help :-) You should email ASUS and just check the ML238H includes the Trace Free feature. Most of their IPS and PLS models do, but not all (VS229H and VS239H for example don't have it). If the ML238H doesn't, the ML229H includes it and is very reasonably-priced. Hope you enjoy your purchases.

EDIT: Just looked up the ML238H and it's actually not IPS. Are you able to find a ML229H? It's Flipkart you're shopping on?

Flipkart does not have many good asus monitors
Will go to the asus dealer personally
On Indian Asus website only ml238h is mentioned.(is it TN??)
There is no other ML series monitor
it has an MX239 but that is almost double the cost I think.
I think i should go with the TN(ml238h) model itself(It is the only one in my price range from asus good enough for gaming)

Is it TN I'm afraid. I've just been looking at the MX239H - looks stunning! That'll be my next monitor unless they release something better before that. For more affordable fast ASUS IPS, the ML229H and ML239H are definitely your best bet.

MX239H really looks stunning
The 2 monitors u mentioned are not available on product list of in.asus.com

That's annoying. The PA238Q, PB238Q and VG23AH are also excellent options, but probably cost the same as the MX239H and without the beautiful design. If it's more than you can spend then maybe take a look at a Dell like the U2312HM. Dell's pixel overdrive impulse is not quite as good as ASUS Trace Free but it's still very good.

The Dell U2311H and U2410 are a couple of slightly older models that are actually faster than many of Dell's more recent models. They're a bit pricier, but worth having a look if there's a good deal on them in India.

After reading all about ghosting and stuff.. I just want to get any TN panel monitor which has less ghosting..
I know all panels except CRT suffer from ghosting.. But a good brand TN is more smoother.
I m going to buy a Asus ML238h
I dont care about colour reproduction or viewing angles. Just want a Monitor with minimal ghosting and input lag...
TN panels are more cheaper than IPS panels(i think).
Budget=150$=Rupees 10000


Any one have any other suggestions??
