It is a great time to buy new graphics cards with prices getting dropped in the Indian market & elsewhere. After the launch of GTX 980 and GTX 970 we there is a good drop in prices for graphics cards. The top end of graphics cards have seen more correction and the effect percolates to low end as well.

We will focus in this article only on the starting range of graphics cards up to Rs.5,000 or $ 80. Before moving to buying graphics card you can also read some other essential articles

Special Note for readers on price- The list here is created based on the online prices, retail prices may vary for these cards in local markets and depending on the country and region.

One more note of caution to the buyers in this range you don’t need more than 1 GB of graphics card if you are gaming for a resolution at 1366*768 or lower in this price range. In fact, the 4GB version of a GT 630 or GT 640 is a marketing gimmick and will not offer better performance compared to a 2 GB version of GT 630 or GT 640.
