    thnx 4 replying.
    after searching the net i found this card to be best under 10000rs[170$].
    are there better card under the price?
    also will this graphic card bottle neck pc because of core2duo ?
    how much percent speed increase will i get with this card compare to my current nvidia 9500gt?
  4. You need to ensure that your power supply is sufficient to need the needs of whatever video card you install.

    What make/model of power supply are you using now?

    currently using a inbuilt psu from cabinet built in.
    thinking of buying a 500 watts psu for that.
    will this high end card make so much difference with core2duo processor or will i hv to change processor too ?

    I wouldnt be as much worried about the bottleneck as I would be about actually finding that card at those prices.
    As the stores that usually still have cards that old in stock are selling them at outrageous prices.

    I'd grab a HD7770 personally, slightly slower, but far lower power consumption and very high OC headroom (about 15% from my experience ) . It's usually available cheaper too where I live. :)

    the 6850 has far more than 200% of GPU power as a 9500GT from rough guess.
    The best Nvidia card in that range would be the GTX460 which..it self is even more rare now.

    Stick to the plan, HD6850 or HD7770. :)

    thnx 4 the suggestions .
    after searching the net i feel too 7770 will be better.
    but it being 128bit affect gaming speed?
    how much watts psu will i need for 7770?
    are there anything else to lookout when buying graphic cards?

    The HD7770 will have lower power requirements than a 6850, that I'll say.
    As for the performance, don't worry. I once had a client built with it, played BF3 multiplayer at1080p just fine.
