  1. never heard of folon. what is their full company/brand name?
    what is your budget?
    which gfx card are you trying to buy?
    cheaper doesn't always mean better.
    known brands usually have better designed products, proper warranty, good cooling, longevity, customer service, driver support.
  2. actuall i have budget of around $50-60 for which cards available in market are msi 210, geforce 210gt, and nvidia 9800gt (chinese manufacturer for 9800gt).

    other cards aviliable are msi 520gt, 240gt they cost around $90-95.
    and all provide only 3 month warrant in my country. Also i cannot order from sites like amazon, tigerdirect etc as it cost double of listed price as for transportation n import charges

    i want to buy nvidia 9800gt 1gb ddr3. 9800gt chipset is much better among the above but the manufacturer is not recognized and i want to play games like assassin creed relevations, gta 4, farcry 2, cod etc.

    my specs are
    intel d 3.2 gz processor
    intel 945gccr motherboard with pci*16
    400watt power supply
    2gb ram

    which one should i buy?

  5. I would recommend you saving up some more money and then buying a gtx550 or 560, but the 9800gt isn't bad, much better than the gt210.
    Also you should buy a new processor and maybe a stronger psu, and if you want to play bf3 at least on medium details with around 25-30 fps, buy some more ram

    Dude he didn't even mention BF3.

    About 9800 GT.. It should be fine for you, at that price range, though, I'd save up and buy something more powerful when you have enough money.

    Where are you from by the way?

    I m from Nepal. actually 9800gt would be good enough for me but i didnt get nvidia 9800gt from recognized brand like msi, galaxy, evga etc. as it bit outdated but the others cards aviliable for the price range of 50-60$ even around 100$ are not as good as 9800gt in terms of performance.

    Although many of the cards are manufactured in china they have foreign brand name this one does not have recognized brand name.


    my real question is should i buy nvidia 9800gt from Chinese manufacturer named folon?
