Hi Guys,

My system

Core 2 DUO E7500 2.93 GHZ
MB Asus P5G41T MLX3
PSU Corsair CMPSU-430CXV2UK
G.Skill NT DDR3 2X4GB Ram
Dell Monitor HD monitor would be upgrading to Full HD LED OR IPS soon researching that separately.

Main criteria

I want to play games at HD resolution with decent FPS.

Would like to have

HDMI 1.4
3D
Full HD support

Please suggest me a GPU under Rs, 7500 Which is $140

Some of the cards in my mind

GT 440 1GB DDR5
AMD HD 6670 1GB DDR5
AMD HD 6770 1GB DDR5

Thank You

  1. 7750 or 7770
  2. Since you only have a 430W PSU, I'd suggest getting a 7000 series board, a 7770 if you can find the right price. I like the 6870, but I don't know if you will be able to fit it in your budget much less your available power supply. Or, if you prefer Nvidia, you may wait for cheaper Kepler varients but who knows when they will drop.

    Its over my budget. Add customs duty to the prices of GPU's and it shoots up to $200

    Couldnt really find a HD6850, but i found a cheap a$$ HD6770 at just under 7k rupees,

    MSI HD6770 1GB GDDR5

    it's gonna be hell lot faster than the GT440


    That looks like a best card all things considered. How good is its FPS when running something on DX 11 like Batman: Arkham City. Well I dont have a 120Hz monitor but still would be good in future

  4. Just a thought, but since you asked about Batman, this game does support Physx, so if you are really liking this game, you should maybe look at an nVidia card. But the 6770 is also a very good choice.
    I suggest this:

    If you can afford it, GTX460 is really a sweet spot for power and price, but it will set you back about 9000 Rs.

    Yes I know about Physx in nvidia cards but not sure its worth an extra 2K in price.

    judging from the charts here with the HD6850 getting 50fps with that kind of setting, the HD6770 should be adequate to handle the game with DX11 off and AA off at 1080p

    Thanks for the FPS info. Looks like this card is punching above its weight. It can run Batman at 1080 P 30FPS claim posters in this thread

    I dont think my PSU can support HD6850 either. Yes 6770 seems to be the best choice.


    Will brands matter much ? There is only a HIS and MSI available. Sapphire seems to be out of stock

    No, that PSU should be enough for a HD 6850.

    Brands differ mainly on cooling solutions, overclock and so on.
    Go for either one. If it were me, I'd go for an MSi.

    Well the manufacture specifications say it needs a minimum 450 W Power Supply Required

    NO MORE SAPPHIRE ?..................... :cry:
    Sapphire's the best brand to get for AMD GPUs from my experience, but if that's all left in the market, get the MSI then, 3 years warranty and nice cooling


    lol I see Sapphire is available at flipkart. So these are the final four cards I have chosen with the help from your suggestions. So out of which MSI seems to be the card with no Cross fire support the rest have it. And also Power color,HIS, and Sapphire have 850 MHz GPU Clock Speed

    Not really. The Corsair CX430W PSU, can very well handle a HD 6850. The info given by the manufacturer's is only like an estimate.
    I've seen an Antec earthwatts 380W PSU running a HD 6850 too.
  9. I'll take the sapphire.

    And I agree with greghome. Sapphire is one of the best manufacturers of an AMD/ATi card. Second best, I'd say, XFX.

    EDIT: Will you be going CF, alter on?

    500 is roughly $10. I am just wondering whether an extra 50 hz in clock speed and Crossfire support isnt worth the extra cost. If not then I don't have a problem with MSI. Because the rest of feature don't make a difference
