More about need graphics card budget
  1. Where are you looking to buy? Forgive me, but I'm not familiar with what retailers in India stock these days.
  2. for 4-5k the absolute best graphics card is the amd radeon 6670 ddr3.
    also get another 2gb of ram as just 2gb is not sufficient for todays demanding games.
    dont worry abt clocks and all just install the graphics card in the pcie x16 slot download and install the latest amd drivers and you are good to go
  3. @unclejehmimah
    its ok...

    @Mohit
    yr m confusd in b/w nvidia and radeon, some says nvidia plays smooth game as of lo fps, n other says amd is bettr n cheapr,
    wht u think amd is expnsive frm nvidia?
  4. Hmmm, bt dis is nt in my budget :/
    i was wondring if can buy a graphics crd of arnd 4000 and 2 gb ram as mohit said only 2gb is nt enough..
  5. So get that on. But you have DDR2 Ram.
    So you'll have to get 4GB ddr3 Ram. Which will cost around 1400.
  6. damn...
    n wht abt graphix crd nw?
  7. Get a lower-end card. Or increase budget.
  8. whts the price of hd5670 and 6750?
  9. no he cannot get ddr3 ram coz he will have to upgrade his motherboard as well as it does not support ddr3.
    so get 2gb ddr2 ram for as cheap as you can
    and get 6670 ddr3 for about 4500 rs
  10. raminder: does 6670 ddr5 @ 5671 comes in your budget. it would be best to buy.
  11. @mohit... my board supprt ddr3 :P and frm where i can get 6670 for 4500rs? bcoz at most of the sites, its rate is 5k or more
  12. akshay.. my budget is 5k max... :/
  13. This should do the trick

    But I would recommend

    And If you find this one locally, Its supposed to be the best in 6670 lines. Even the looks are great.

    Don't go for ddr3. Extend your buget by 5-600 and get a ddr5 6670 atleast. DDR3 will have a 10fps difference in most games and that is the gap between playable and non playable in low end cards.

    Here is the ram you should look for.

    Recommend the kingston one. Havent had many good reviews for transcend lately.


    If you are extremely tight on budget only then go for ddr3 and it will be a bad investment seeing the gddr5 version is 1k more. But still it will be fine in most games.


    And you can hold off the ram purchase for a while and invest in gfx. 2 gb ram will suffice for most games all you have to make sure is to free it before you play.

    PS : I am planning on getting a 6670 ddr5 myself as soon as my problem gets solved.. :/
  14. Arpit- thnku so much,
    hmm i was thinkng it too to hold the ram for gfx...

    and 1 more thing my has pci-e 1.0 and the gfx has 2.0, it gonna reduce the capacity of crd?
  15. Dont worry they are backwards compatible :) all new cards work on old slots and old cards work on new

  17. ok.. cool down cooldude..

    @arpit ohkk,
    and what about hd 5670 ddr5?its market price here is around 4300..
  18. 15-20% less performance than a 6670 and 6670 has more shaders so it will benifit from shader intensive titles. You can go for 5670gddr5 if you can live with;slight less performance and as 6670 is newer it has less power eq and less heat. Btw where do you live for getting 5670 so cheap?

    Sorry for spells and typos, typing from phone on TSH is hard
  19. from nehruplace price list..
    i know hd6670 is better than hd5670 but its price is also comparatively high as hd 6670 gddr5 is of 6000 and hd 5670 is of 4300, the difference of 1700 :|
  20. Get the HIS version of 5670 its supposed to be good. But 6670 is available for 5700 in flipkart which I just ordered. So you can see if you can get that :P

    A good idea would be a 5670 + 2gb ddr2 ram as i can see you will be doing it for the first time this card will keep you happy enough.. :P
    Next aim for a big processor and motherboard and ram upgrade :P
  21. ohk.. thnxx take care.. :)
