  1. From d market i found out des two cards:
    Nvidia GeForce 6600 512MB - 2850 INR
    Nvidia GeForce 6200 256MB - 2600 INR

    Which 1 is better.....plz suggest some other cards also..
  2. Why do you want to buy an AGP card for 3000 INR now when it absolutely wont do you any good?
  3. @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 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?
  4. 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!

    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

    Model 6600GT
    Interface PCI Express x16
    Chipset Manufacturer NVIDIA
    GPU GeForce 6600GT
    Core Clock 500MHz
    Effective Memory Clock 1000MHz
    Memory Size 128MB
    Memory Interface 128-bit
    Memory Type GDDR3
    3D API
    DirectX DirectX 9
    OpenGL OpenGL 1.5 This will be a problem!!

    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

    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?
  10. Will Radeon HD 3650 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 work on my 450 W PSU?

    I will try getting 3650 shipped from US.....its not available in Mumbai
