RE: Graphics Card Suggestions requested
you cannot compare different generations of graphics cards... you have to wait for the latest of nvidia before you compare the new ATI... and as discrate said (well not as much detail) 512 cores > 1 core... and also C++ coding on GPU *drools*

and so what about DX11 ? games are built to be backwards compatible unless they are DX specific. also with what JA wants to do with the graphics card... DX9 would be plenty for it even, no point in DX11.

and as i have already said, ATI are only good for Anti Aliasing, which when running at 1080p doesnt do shit!

For that money you'll want a 5770. It's 130 in Britain, but that's with our stupid prices, I don't know what it'll be like in India. This ATI card "shits all over" the 9800GT being recommended here, it might be more expensive, but it's not a big deal. If you can get a 5850 (I paid 199, it seems to have gone up to 240...) in your budget then that's where you should go. This is the card I have, it's better than the GTX260 I used to use.

The 5000 series seeing as it is a new architecture is going to be around for a while. You're welcome to wait for nVidia's Fermi to come out, but if it's anything like the GTX200 series release then the cards will be rather expensive (at least, out of your budget).

He doesn't want nor need a high end card though.

thats almost 1/2 price... of course the other cards are going to outdo the 9800...

did you even read what i said before:

and yes, you may have compared it to both... but you compared a 5850 (which is a fairly high card in ATI) to a GTX260... they may be close but what you should be comparing to is a 280 or 285... which is a fair difference in power...

so please, when you do comparisons, do it right!

The 5750 should cost only a little bit more than the 1GB 9800GT and apparently outperforms it. Plus, Eyefinity is nice for multiple monitor setups.

Actually the GTX285 also gets beat in certain games (source) and is currently poking around 320, but I never had one of these cards so I couldn't comment from my point of view. However, the GTX285 is definitely going to be out of JA's scope.

He doesn't want nor need a high end card though.
But he did say he wants it to last for a long time. A 9800GT will scrape through at 1920x1080 with AA on current games (especially seeing as it's just a remap of the 8800GT - which has been out for over two years now), but not for long.

The 5770 will survive for much longer, seeing as it has just been released and has a very good price-to-performance ratio. The 5850 will maybe last that bit longer due to its extra power.

im getting 80fps on mw2... thats not scraping... and thats without overclocking... this card will last for about 3 more years... yes by then it will be down to about 20-40fps for the higher end of games, but as JA said, he doesnt play those sorts of game... just low to mid end games.

and I played for about 2 years with a 6200 (this was 2 years ago), the games i that i was playing: CS: S, TF2, etc (mainly valve games). On lowest graphics i was playing at 15-20FPS... which was still reasonable to play with because i would often be up near the top of multiplayer games.
