I would like to know which is the minimum required graphic card for a good gaming experience. As I will be getting My system assembled. I'll be getting an i3 and an intel motherboard. I would also like to know what would be the best options in i3 and the motherboard or can I get a i5 for My budget. I have a total budget of Rs.25,000 or approx. $500. Plz help Me choose the best for My budget. Thanx alot...
If you are looking CPU+GPU+RAM+Motherboard In that budget you do not need an i5, go pick out an i3-2100, a H67/H61 Motherboard, Some DDR3 4GB (2X2) RAMs, A 6850, should go around 25000 rupees.
H61 = 4000
i3-2100 = 7000
4GB DDR3 = 2000
6850 = 10000
Total of = 23000
You can even push up to 6870. If you tell me is the i3 enough? The answer is yes, even for 7970 it'll still be enough.
If you are asking for 25000 rupees Whole system, you can get 10000 rupees for peripherals such as case, PSU, HDD, ODD, etc, Buy a 5000 rupees processor such as Phenom II X2 or Pentium G840, An H61 4000 motherboard, some 1000 rupees DDR3 RAMs and the rest probably 5000 for the 6670 graphic card. I know this is not great of a system but this is what you would get in India for 25000 rupees.
However if you have 25000 only for graphics card, you have a nice budget and even you have an i3-2100, you still be fine until 7970 as I said before. You can pick (or most probably you have to wait) a 7950.
