More about which graphic card
  1. Don't get that 285. It's old
    Instead get a Radeon 5850.
    For the same price.

    I'll be around Rs. 19000
    Yes, its cheap but will perform slightly better than GTX 285 and adds DirectX11.


    GooD LucK
  2. Yes, get the HD5850 instead. It's cheaper, better, DX11 and uses much less power.

  3. BTW what are rest of your specs along with PSU and monitor native resolution?
  4. Need to know more about your machine. Getting a top end Graphics card with an old slow processor is waste of money. Bottleneck will occur to slow card to performance levels of cheaper graphics card. More info is needed about your system.
  5. What does bottleneck means ??? Please don't laugh since I am not familiar with these techinical terms ...
  6. Which Radeon 5850? Look I am always confused in the names of these graphic cards like ATI Radeon 5xxx , Palit Radeon HD 5xxx and many more...

    So which is the card you are telling me and also please tell me the difference between the cards...

    I have the same confusion with the series GTX... like nvidia GTX..., zotac GTX... and others. What is difference between them and what is the similarity between them or all of them are the same just the company is different? Please help me out because this is very confusing...


    And very-very thanx for the reply............... :)
  7. We asked you to mention your System specs and monitor native resolution....

    Sapphire Radeon HD5850 will be good.

    That's pretty much like buying a standard Mercedes or AMG Mercedes or Brabus Mercedes. Generally speaking, the components will be Mercedes - and some tweeking may or may not occur on AMG/Brabus side.

    Same thing with Zotac, PNY, XFX, EVGA etc. They put the card together and may or may not tweek it with things like better cooling compnents or 'tune' the card to make it faster. So your friend is recommending a specific tuner to purchase your card from.

    That is the best analogy I can give you.

    So what everyone is suggesting to you is do not get AMG Ferrari (GTX 285) from June 2006, instead get the January 2010 Brabus Bugatti Veyron becuase it comes with 2 cupholders and 4 turbos and the Ferrari doesn't.

    Anyway, the AMD HD 5850 is better and the HD 5870 is the BEST!
  9. sorry I can't tell u the current version bcoz I am going to upgrade my PC...

    So after upgradition I will tell u the System specs...The monitor's Max resolution is 1280X1024...
  10. Well you really don't need to spend that much on a video card for that resolution. Even a card half the price like the HD5770 will be overkill for that monitor. Only consider the HD5850 if you plan on upgrading your monitor as well.
  11. You are looking for a Rs20000 Gfx card for 1280X1024 resolution!!!

    Are you going to change the Monitor anytime soon?
    Cuz the gfx card mentioned(5850) can play at settings like 1920X1080 as smooth as butter!

    Better get a new screen for Rs 10000(You'll get 23" full HD LCD) and Rs10000 gfx card such as HD 5770.
  12. @jyjjy : We posted the same thing. Our thoughts match!! :)
    (Making clear I dint copied you :) )
  13. Hey thanx for the reply and nice suggestions....Can you suggest me a good monitor too which you are telling about coz I am going to buy Radeon 5850...

    aslo tell me which company should I choose for the graphic gard and for the monitor........ :bounce:
  14. For a monitor look for something with a native resolution of 1920x1080 or higher to go with the HD5850. For gaming one with a low response time(2ms) is a good idea but some people don't really notice the difference.
    As for the brand of card they are all basically the same apart from the cooler, warranty and, of course, price.
  15. Hey thanx for the reply and nice suggestions....Can you suggest me a good monitor too which you are telling about coz I am going to buy Radeon 5850...

    It would be really helpful if you could tell me which company should I choose for the graphic gard and for the monitor........ :bounce:
  16. Tell me about the XFX Radeon HD 5850...is it good as compared to Sapphire Radeon HD5850...

    Also tell me which company gives more warranty and discount and which one is more reliable out of these two...

    If you have another company in mind then please tell ....


    Thank You........ :wahoo:
  17. They are both good manufacturers and the cards should be equally reliable. What warranty the manufacturer offers varies by country so you should look into that yourself.
    I would suggest deciding mostly based on price.
  18. Samsung 2233SW for Rs9500 is a very good monitor.

    BTW what is your budget for the monitor?
    Do you want card and monitor both in 20k?
  19. Hi... :sol:
    No, I just wanna buy a monitor in Rs10,000 and a card for Rs20,000 separately...

    you suggested me the monitor...thanx for that....but could you tell me the specifications of that monitor please..... :pt1cable:
