Conclusion Best Graphics Card for Rs 13000 : The card is almost 1.5 years old as was launched in Sept 2012 though it has ruled the mid level segment along with the GTX 660Ti offering great performance. It was retailing around 16,000 in September 2013 and price drop after launch of GTX 760 was launched. This has made it real value for money for gamers who want to get maximum output out of there hardware while paying less money. The card is direct x 11 compatible and there is no reason not to buy this if you plan to make a gaming rig for mid range 35-45k. If budget permits my recommendation will be to go ahead with R9 270X if budget for graphics card is 15000 and use AMD processor with this card like AMD FX8350 or AMD FX 6300 a core i5 3570k is best but will be expensive with this built. Suggested Ram 6GB is more than enough for a gaming rig using the above card.
The card has good potential to overclock as well and can reach almost to stock R9 270X performance.
