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 2 GB of graphics card VRAM if you are gaming at 1366*768 or lower resolution. In fact, the 4GB version of a GT 730 is a marketing gimmick and will not offer better performance compared to a 2 GB version of GT 1030.

1. ASUS Nvidia GeForce GT 710

Are you looking for a new budget-friendly Graphics Card to upgrade the gaming performance of your PC? We have got some excellent suggestions for you.

Let’s start with the most affordable graphics card available currently.

The Nvidia GT 710 is the cheapest card on the market that you may want to add to your Rig.

Let’s check out the key specs and features for the Nvidia GT 710. It is an entry-level graphics card and should be paired with a low-end PC. 

Asus NVIDIA GeForce GT 710

If you are running something like a Core 2 Duo or older Intel or AMD processor and don’t want to upgrade to a new machine, can add this little beauty to enhance the performance of your system.

Firstly, The NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 comes with a 2 GB GDDR3 VRAM.

It supports a max resolution of 2560*1600 pixels. However, it is ideal for 720P or lowers for gaming. 

The graphics card comes with the true-ODB passive cooling and doesn’t have a cooling fan. 

The authenticity of the card is based on Super Alloy power II with Auto-Extreme Technology, 100% full automation.

The application of GPU Tweak II makes overclocking easygoing and enhanced visually with the spontaneous UI it uses.

You will get the memory clocks at 900 MHz (1800 MHz effective), and the GPU clocks at 954 MHz with a boost up to 1001 MHz.

It supports the latest Direct X 12 and OpenGL 4.5.

The ports here include D-Sub output, DVI output, and HDMI. You can connect 3 monitors at a time. We can run it with most power supplies, even the ones that have 300-350 watts of output. 

The GPU is available for just Rs. 3,368.

Buy from Amazon

2. Galaxy NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 1 GB DDR5 Graphics Card

Moving to the best graphics card on the list, the GDDR5 1 GB Nvidia Geforce GT 730.

The graphics card is based on the last generation Kepler architecture and offers great gaming performance with significantly higher clock speed and GDDR5 VRAM. The GDDR5 VRAM is almost twice as fast as the DDR3 version of VRAM.

It is significantly faster as compared to a GT 630 or GT 620 from yesteryears. I would recommend reading the article on how much VRAM is required to play PC games on a different resolution. Galaxy is offering the card at a discounted price and is currently available for Rs. 4,900.

5 Best Graphics Card under Rs 5000 for 2015

It will not matter that a GT 620 has 2GB memory Vs. the GT 730 with 1 GB memory. The GT 730 will perform at least 10-20% faster in most games compared to a GT 620. A higher amount of VRAM is required when we are gaming on 1080p or higher.

Either way, before the GT 730 uses 1 GB Ram it will probably run out of processing power to generate pixels on a higher resolution display. So you must buy a GT GDDR5 1 GB card instead of the slower 2GB DDR3 version.

The specs for Galaxy Nvidia GT 730, 64-bit, 1 GB DDR5 Memory, and core clock at 954 Mhz with Microsoft Direct X 12 support. The graphics card requires a 300-watt power supply and PCI Express 2.0 support to function properly.

The GPU comes with a 3-year carry-in warranty.

It was not available in stock last when I checked. It will be better to opt for the GT 1030 listed below that offers even better performance than the GT 730.

3. Zotac GeForce GT 1030

Next on the list is the Zotac GeForce GT 1030 GPU with energy-efficient technology. The Nvidia GT 1030 is the latest affordable graphics card from Nvidia and is from a new generation than the This card is decent for entry-level gaming pc and comes with 384 CUDA core. 

Nvidia GT 1030

Let’s discuss the specifications for Zotac GeForce GT 1030 GPU.

It works smoothly with the old PCs also.

You’ll get 2GB GDDR5 VRAM (6000 MHz effective)and 64-bit Bus width. The GPU clocks at 1227 MHz up to 1468 MHz boost speed. A max resolution of 7680*4320 pixels at 60 Hz is maintained.

The GDDR5 VRAM is twice as fast as the GDDR3. 

The low profile GPU can play all games at 30-60 fps with low to medium settings at 720P or lower resolution. 

HDMI 2.0b and SL-DVI-D are the ports. It supports Direct X 12, Open GL 4.5, and PCI-E 3.0 (also compatible with 2.0).

The dimension it measures is 17.20*11.13*160 cm and weighs 381 g.

The GT 1030 is a masterpiece at an affordable rate with active heat sinks with quite a whisper and a single fan. It is available at INR 6,500.

Buy from Amazon

4. ZOTAC GeForce GT 730 ZONE Edition (4 GB)

Do you want a graphics card at a price of 5k-6K, and having more  VRAM!! Then GT 730 is the best for your Rig. It is the most affordable graphics card available in the market that comes with 4 GB of VRAM.

Using this card, one can play all games by executing medium to high settings but apparently, the card is meant for graphic design.

Nvidia GT 730 and GT 740 Price and Specifications

Specification and features in detail for Zotac GeForce GT 730 GPU. 

The card comes with 4 GB DDR3 RAM (1600 MHz). GPU clocks at 902 MHz with a boost up to 1001 MHz. It supports PCI-E 2.0, Direct X 12, and Open GL 4.4.

The maximum resolution for GT 730 is 3840*2160 pixels. It measures 26.01*15.98*5.9 cm and weighs 460 g.

The GPU has a passive cooling system with no cooling fans. The ports include DL-DVI, VGA, and HDMI.

The Zotac GT 730 has a price label of INR 6,249. Notably, I will suggest buying the Nvidia GT 1030 over this one despite having a lesser Vram.

The performance of GT 1030 (2 GB) is better than the GT 730 (4GB) for all gaming titles due to its newer architecture and powerful processor. 

Buy from Amazon

5. PowerColor AXRX AMD Radeon RX 550 (4GB)

Are you looking for something superior in performance to the above-mentioned graphics cards than you can pick up the AMD Radeon RX 550 GPU?

The AMD RX 550 is an ideal addition to an entry-level gaming PC and can allow you to game on 720P resolution with ease.

It is most suitable for e-sport gamers and even for running photoshop or other productivity software.

It has a single fan for cooling, which makes it run cooler under heavy load. 

AMD Radeon RX 550 GPU

Concluding Thoughts

You can choose any of the above graphics cards based on your budget. These are some of the brands which are offering graphics cards at a slight discount. 

I have personally used MSI, Sapphire, and Asus and there is hardly a performance difference between low and mid-range cards.

While there has been a lot of development in the higher-end segment with Nvidia RTX 3080 and GTX 3090 and AMD is also releasing new 6000 series graphics cards.

While Gamers in the US/UK look forward to upgrading to the latest RTX 3080 and run systems on 4k it is challenging to afford even a single RTX 2060 based Gaming PC in countries like India.

There are very few Gamers who can afford a Gaming PC Rig for above Rs. 1 lakh in India.

The need for AMD/Nvidia is to develop cards especially for developing countries like India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal to give Gamers affordable gaming solutions similar to Google did with Android One Smartphones.

If you add a new card to your old PC rig for playing new gaming titles like Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Fifa 15, GTA 5, Battlefield V, or Call of Duty, you must check the game requirements before buying the graphics card.

Also, do check the SMPS(power supply requirements) before purchasing a graphics card and also your monitor resolution to determine how much VRAM you need in a graphics card.
