Yeah... not exactly a PC for doing that stuff. But anyway, best bet is go for an Nvidia card as it's possible those apps support CUDA. So, not sure the conversion to dollars but maybe a GTS 450, GTS 260, GTX 460

I don't know 8,000 rupees = $??? (dollars)
But looking at your specs, well, i guess GT240 is more than enough for your need. You are get more benefit from Nvidia cards since Nvidia card support CUDA.

Any card higher than GT240 will be hold back by your cpu. So i guess GT240 is your best bet. :)

Yes, i know GT240 is a low end gaming card, but i'm pretty sure the OP can't afford high end rendering card like Quadro or FirePro.

Besides, the OP specs are too low to give him more performance, seriously, 3D works are more CPU demanding than GPU. So as long as he has a FAST CPU then we'll good...

OP is talking about highend 3d rendering. Gt 240 aka 9600gt will beg for mercy if you try running maya with it.

Again, you are only wasting your money if you buy that expensive card without upgrading your other specs, your cpu is too low to give it's potential with high end rendering card...
$1200 for just one card? yes you can, but al least OC your CPU first, above 3.0GHz is good (if you can). :)

okay, with $1200 you can build a great PC to handle workstation or gaming as well.
You don't have to use Quadro, gaming card like GTX460 is good enough to handle 3D works...

A lot of rendering requires more CPU power. I know at my work we use solid works and for rendering it depends almost entirely on how many CPU cores you have. I don't know if they're all like this, I presume that CUDA will help a ton, but anyway for the budget of $12-1500 you could easily build an AMD Phenom X6 1055T or 1090T system which will blow the current CPU away, and run something like a GTX 460 as wa1 mentioned.
