I want a graphics card that won't bottleneck my cpu. I am a casual gamer. My PC specs:

Core 2 Do e4600
Frontech ATX P4 450W PSU
Zotac NVidia GEforece 210

Don't tell me to upgrade processor coz i don't have budget for that.

well any gpu will do. You wont bottle neck your gpu you will just have diminished returns depending on what game you are playing. we need to know what your budget is.

GTX750Ti

RS 12000 - http://www.flipkart.com/msi-nvidia-geforce-gtx-750ti-2-...

It'll be a hell of a lot better than the gt210 and needs 380W max. But I wish youd' get a better power supply eg

The psu seems sketchy to me. But maybe a gtx 750Ti, and there will probably be a slight bottleneck in more cpu intensive games.

You are asking for a graphics card that will not hinder your processor? Nvidia gt640.
I doubt your unheard of power supply could run much bigger.

Budget 10 to 12K?

Calnin but on another forum a guy told me gtx 750 ti could bottleneck upto 50%! I mean that's huge only half the performance.

Bottlenecking is only guesswork. It depends also on the application (game).

So you saying that i will run fine on non-cpu intensive games? But for just information how much will gtx 750 ti bottleneck on previous 2-3 years game as per fps and percentage?

If its a gpu intensive game, then there will be minimal bottleneck. The key words from what i see are "up to" meaning it can be 1% or it can be that 50%. It's all dependent on the game you play and maybe the resolution you play on. If you want something that'll play everything with minimal bottleneck go with tea's suggestion, the gt 640.

How bout gtx 650 ti won't it do?

id say get a 750 that does not require a 6 pin power connector. gt640s are overpriced

The 750Ti does not require a power connector either I believe.

same thing. as long as to does not require a 6 pin I'd think you will be ok. I'd look into a new psu though. that thing is most likely a fire hazard.

some do, some dont. the msi twin frozr is my personal favorite as far a 750tis go

Isn't gtx 650 ti bang for buck as it's performance is quite similar to 750 ti or 750 ti is worth the extra 1-2K? Please suggest.

Are you saying that any gpu I buy, but if the processor is below recommendation for app (game) PC will bottleneck in the app?

It's more or less diminishing returns like someone above said I believe. It'll just hit the peak of the curve a lot faster than cpu like an i5 or i7.

But I believe it's still application based.

Will the 750 ti give more performance than gtx 650 ti as it is costly than the latter. IS it worth extra 1-2K

The 750ti is about 30% more powerful than the 650Ti. So yes - its worth the extra 1-2k

cpu would hold back a 650 t.i.
