very few games will be DX11 exclusive for quite some time, most DX10 games also have a DX9 mode, most DX11 games will also have a DX10 mode for a few years yet so you wont have any incompatibilities.

DirectX 11 requires specific hardware support. There is no way to mod a DX10 card to DX11.

5770 ~ 4870. Might want to go that route if your worried about DX11. You might also want to wait for Nvidia's DX11 cards, but that could be as long as April/May according to last rumor.

well the 5750 and 5770 are as powerfull as a 4850 and 4870. probly your best bet, can find them for ~$150 for 5750 and ~$175 for 5770 on newegg, dono what the prices will be in your area.
a 5850 and 5870 are roughly as good as two 4850 and two 4870 in crossfire. supply is extremly limited here in the US, only listed these to give you a feel for performance. $300 and $400.

DX10 will be around for a while. The games currently being produced still supports DX9. If you really want all the eye candy you want then step up to the HD 5850.

Im sure nvidia will have some models that will fit in your price range. But the real question is if you want to wait for them or enjoy DX 11 now?
November 24, 2009 5:10:28 AM

will they be released within the end of december ????

I will suggest you to buy HD 5770.Its comparable to 4870 and 260 in performance and has DX11 support.
Its Power consumption is lesser than 4870/260.

GTX 275 and HD4890 are out of your budget.

Mention your Monitor's resolution and Other specs of your PC including PSU.

coool thnks ....

imho, a 5770 has all the grunt of a 4890, so dx9/10 games will be covered fine, but as for dx11 games, noone can say for any certainty how itll perform. It could turn out to be an absolute dream with them, or it could be that the 5870 doesnt have the power. Highly doubtfull, but its happened in the past!

for you budget, id go for the 5770, and save up for a second if you find you nedd the extra 'umph'

Assuming the motherboard is Crossfire compatible.

You can find Corsair VX450 for Rs4000.
It is better quality than CM600w.
Go for that.

And 20" LCD will be fine.
