Well,
Leave 4850 aside and take the two, 5750 and 5770


Now,
5770 will perform 'great' at 1920x1200 with maximized settings, for $160, that will be around Rs. 16,500

5750 will perform 'good' at 1920x1200 with maximized settings for $130, and that will be around Rs. 12,000


Choose accordingly
Both of the cards will be good for your PSU

^Prices you told aren't correct.
HD 5750:Rs 8500
HD 5770:Rs10500
HD 4850:Rs 6500.

First of all you'll need to change your Intex PSU.It is a piece of crap and won't handle any of those cards.
Tell me your budget.
You'll also need another 2GB RAM stick if you want to game properly.

And also mention your monitors highest resolution .

^ :hello: 
Don't you think it will be better to invest some in 2GB Ram rather than getting a HD5770?

(PSU is must so i'm not talking abt it)

yaaa he needs some ram too.. A 2Gb zion 667 MHz should cost around Rs1500(maybe less)...But since a gfx card is a one time investment he should get something powerful so that it last for at lest 2 years..

no,but its good because u can overclock your cpu thereby increasing the memory speed...If you are too tight on your budget then right now focus on the Gfx card and psu...I had bought a zebronics 600w psu for Rs3000 for my 4890 and its serving well(27A on 12v )....

lol pls specify you resolutions of your comp because you wont need big cards in 1024*728.
3gb ram should do good for you but you can play with you 2gig ram too. upgrade your psu if you want long life in your gpu and others pc parts.get coolmaster 500W it tha best for you.

thx for askin!

Buy whichever ram is cheaper as the 800mhz ram will downclock itself automatically to match your current ram.
An HD4850 is a good card for that resolution and looks to be the best for the money from the prices on the link sayantan pasted. The HD5770 is a good idea if you can afford it.

Well at that point the limiting factor will be your cpu. It's ok but not particularly good. If you could overclock it that would be great as C2Ds OC very well but you have an intel motherboard and most of them don't allow for overclocking. But yeah, you should be able to play all of those games competently at that resolution. The processor intensive ones like GTA and Crysis wont do as well as the card would usually let you but they should still be playable.

Tagan TG-500-U37 Max Power Upto 600W ATX will cost you Rs. 3100
and Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 500W ATX will cost you Rs. 2800

and if you want second hand power supply of corsair and cooler master in range of 650 watts then you can log on to www.techenclave.com and go to trade zone and then go to member's market.

Don't go for Cooler Master 'extreme power'
I have heard some bad experiences of these.

With 5750 HD

You will be able to play almost every game with great frame rate at 1920x1680

However,

If you are playing at 1680x1050, then 5750 will perform exceptionally for you.

No you don't necessarily need a 500W PSU.

You should avoid Coolermaster PSU cuz they are time bombs!!!
Yes, people have experienced such things with lower end CM PSU.

And Coolermaster Extreme power is 70% efficient.
While the two I mentioned are more than 80% efficient.That means lower power drawb from AC socket and lower heat dissipation.

^There's nothing like Corsair cx500

@OP:Gigabyte Superb has another 12v rail rated at 14A...It has dual rails.It will easily handle your card.

But Corsair 400CX should be your 1st preference.
