Hi,
my friend is going to buy a graphic card under very tight budget which is 8000Rupee that would be USD $90. His configuration is Core2Duo e7500,Intel DG41rq,4gb DDR2 800mhz,Seasonic S12IIi 520w PSU. He has 1366x768 19inch wide screen monitor and some times he uses his 42inch plasma tv which uses a HDMI port resolution 1920x1080. He is buying the card is only for MAYA 2013,3DS MAX 2011,ADOBE MASTER SUITE CS6 (Mostly Photoshop & Premierpro) Sony vegas pro, he is a graphic designer and media enthusiast. Not a hardcore Gamer, gaming performance is secondary he majorly buying gpu is for above programs, but he plays crysis,elderscrolls,wow, dirt3, and almost every high performance graphic demanding games.He always does his work at highest settings possible. He finally chose two graphic cards in his budget those are

XFX GTX 285 WITHOUT WARRANTY

HIS 6850 WITH 2YEAR MANUFACTURER WARRANTY

http://www.ebay.in/itm/HIS-Radeon-HD6850-1GB-GDDR5-/231...

both are unused brand new cards but he is unable to decide which to buy. and he own a 1080p passive 3d monitor sometimes he uses it for movies and games not on regular basis. Budget is fixed he can't pay one more paisa/cent above said budget configuration cannot be changed os is windows 8 licensed. Kindly give us a solution.

I would personally go with the HIS 6850 since it has the warranty, at least if it doesn't work you can send it in for a replacement where as the GTX 285 you couldn't if you received a defective one. Also please remember to select the best solution so that others may learn from this thread. Thank you for your time.
