@hell_storm2004
Actually my mobo supports only AGP card- so only AGP
My budget is a bit tight- but can extend till 4000 INR(If u know a good 1 den do suggest me)

M bored of playing all games at lowest resoln.....so thought to buy a low end graphics card. N i want to work wid photoshop- cs5 which currently eats a lot of RAM(i guess installing graphics card will improve performance a bit)

As i dunno much....but do u think it wont improve my performance?

The AGP cards that you are getting, you would still be playing modern games at their lowest setting. Some wont even run! So what's the use?

I think you need a complete change in your rig. Save the cash and save a little bit more then go for a complete overhaul!

1GB of RAM
1GB of available hard-disk space for installation; additional free space required during installation (cannot install on removable flash-based storage devices)
1024x768 display (1280x800 recommended) with qualified hardware-accelerated OpenGL graphics card, 16-bit color, and 256MB of VRAM
Some GPU-accelerated features require graphics support for Shader Model 3.0 and OpenGL 2.0
DVD-ROM drive
QuickTime 7.6.2 software required for multimedia features

Memory Size 128MB

Requires PCI Express x16 slot compliant motherboard

OpenGL is a standard for graphics programming in which the app sends OpenGL commands to the card which responds appropriately. DirectX on Windows is Microsoft's standard, which most (all?) PC games use. So it's likely that your card would also have a statement about DirectX compatibility.

In any event, the driver translates OpenGL or DirectX commands into lower-level operations performed by the card itself, thus isolating the app from the details of an individual card's architecture.


This is what you need for PhotoShop CS5: A card with Shader 3.0 and at least openGL of 2.0


According to my calculations, you have between $40-$47 to Spend

So: I recommend the Radeon HD 2400PRO 512MB 64-bit DDR2 AGP 8X HDCP Ready Video Card , Yes its ATi but I don't think there is an Nvidia card out there that will help you with your problem, your budget being one of them

www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681412913...

the card, yet again according to my calculations will cost $50 (around: INR3250)

but if you can stretch your budget to 4000INR then I would go for the :Radeon HD 3650 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X HDCP Ready Video Card, the card will cost you around $60 (+/- INR3900)

hope this helps and hope i got the foreign exchange rate correct, but i'm sure i did!!! :)

The 3650 is a good card. But have you checked for the availability? Which city do you live?
