The first graphic card was POV ( Point-Of-View ) 7300Gt, 512MB DDR2.
A month or so ago, the card fried upto 124 deg C.
So I got TAG ( Technology and Gadgets ) 9500GT, 512MB DDR2.

I am sorry i did try the search but CMON Need Advice on "Graphic Card" does that actually sound like a place where someone would post their config and talk about games...

The later is kinda close... though...

And well i guess a merger of the two is what i wanted...

So anyways seems like many of you have an 8series card...
btw touqueguru awesome gig you have there....

Am planning to get a desktop probably with a ATI 4870 or if possible an X2 of the 4XXX series...

ATI have made a comeback im sure they will take down nvidia sooner or later...

CHEERS...

ATi's present design on which the 4870 is based has an insanely good transistor efficient design, the reason why it gives very tough competition to nVidia.
That is one of the best cards one can have in under Rs. 15K. nVidia also has reduced the cost of its cards, but this one is better as its more energy efficient.
Go for one, and you wont regret.
