The 9500GT 1GB DDR2 sucks, I'm sorry - the 1GB is a marketing gimmick and won't make a difference between 512MB and 1GB, on a weak card like the 9500GT. The 9600GT 512MB will perform a lot better, and you should definitely get that instead.
i have a 20''lcd monitor of 1900 x 600 resolution. so would that effect while chosing cards. moreover while surfimmg reviews i came across radeon 4830. what do u say bout that? will radeon card support my mobo? and i also want to know that are radeon cjards better or nvidia? thanks for ur advice...
With 1900 x 600 resolution you definitely want a more powerful gaming video card than a Nvidia 9500GT. And even the 9600GT (now more than 2 years old) may not be the best choice.
And how much are you willing to spend on a new video card?
How much was that Radeon 4830? It's about a year and a half old video card.
Also, what kind of power supply does your computer have? If you're unsure - just list the make and model of your PC. More than anything else (besides maybe your budget) it will be the limiting factor on how powerful a video card you stick in your system.
sorry i wrote wrong. my resolution is 1600 x 900. and my power supply: i m quite unsure bout it... bt i have the one that was the stock... i dnt have any idea. my budget is just 5k inr. hope i will get sumthing within that..
