if you are into gaming i suggest you lowering the Processor, go with a good i5 and get a better GPU.

Go for a 660ti if you can push to it. In my opinion this is a card that will last the 5 yrs you are demanding from your new system. It also doesn't break the bank so if needed you could even upgrade at a later date.

On a side note, I'd also put in another 4gb of ram as 8gb seems to be the sweet spot at the minute. It's also not very expensive.

I would also agree with ricardois, an i7 with hyperthreading is pretty useless for gaming as hyperthreading is never used. Get an i5 3570k instead, I've overclocked mine (moderately) and it's great!

Do 660ti comes in my budget.,Right now i can't buy i5 only for gaming,i will be using i7 3770 bcz i have paid 18000 for this new processor,i think it will work similarly as i5 3570;not less than it,And one more thing what is the difference between ti and non ti version

if you cant change the CPU, than keep using it, when you have the money for a 660ti or a 670 maybe, go with it.

I think the 660ti will be slightly above your price ceiling, but only just. maybe $30 over tops. The difference between standard 660 and 660ti is that the ti version is more suited to gaming, as are all ti models. They have higher memory bandwidth and shader cores (i think) or they certainly did in the past.

In short, a vanilla 660 will be cheaper, but isn't a 'hardcore' mid-high range gamer card but the ti version is.

It will also draw less power than a 560ti as it is using the new 28nm technology and will no doubt overclock better too.

The 560 ti is totally changed, different clocks, the performance is way better in the 560 ti, minimum i would say, go with a 560 ti twin frozr II edition, but with the 600 series there, the price/performance of those 560ti isn't so good.

NO, none of those gpus comes with the VGA output.

VGA port is analogic, i don't recommend you using analogic outputs, the quality is very poor compared with digital port (DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort). so i would recommend you to use those ports on your monitor if you don't have them, you can use adapter, but i highly advise you going with a better monitor later.

600 watt is enough, but you must check if the PSU can really send those 600Watt. i'll do that for you.

EDIT: by the psu specs http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6851

it will handle it, this psu does have 2x 6pin connectors (required to plug your GPU) and it appears to give a minimum of 500w what is recommended to the 560 ti so you are ok with it.

i've had 2 560ti and both came with the adapter so yes, probably it will come with it unless you buy an OEM version or something like that.

There are a lot of people who do PSU tests, they stress it and keep measuring the wattage it is delivering, doing so is not so easy, you must read reviews about it, but like i have said before, by the psu specs you will be OK. Unless the psu is with a problem.

don't buy a gtx 560 ti 448 cores, get a GTX 660 (not GTX 660TI)
GTX 660s today are $229 in newegg. Just add 10 bucks and it's a better and more efficient card.

see comparison

GTX 660 has 960 cuda cores compared to just 448 in GTX 560ti...

Almost (if not every +$100) video card these days comes with a DVI to VGA adapter, donĀ“t worry about that

M just curious about ur rig.
u have top of line the processor with only 4 gb ram. In 64 bits environment 4 gb is nothing.
Beside u want ur card to last for 5 yrs within such a small budget. Even two geforce 690 in sli wont last that long.
A high end processor is useless without a high end graphic card for gaming. Hope u have a good motherboard.
When u buy something try to buy balanced hardware combination within ur budget limit. Here nobody will suggest u that processor of your for gaming. people r happy with i5 .
Take a look at the list provided by the link. How cheap cards r.
http://www.junglee.com/mn/search/junglee/ref=sr_pg_2?rh...

then click any card link.
there u will see that actual price is advertised price + shipping price = x + x.

In India graphic cards r still very costly. Here u will get something above amd 7770.
