    Games I’d want to play are CoD Adv Warfare, AC Unity, Witcher 3.
    My budget is Rs.10000-12000.

    • Thanks for the quick reply Kanuj.
      But I had read somewhere that AMD processors work better with AMD/ATI GPUs, and Intel ones work better with Nvidia. Isn’t that true?
      Else, is there any compatibility factor for a graphic card with the CPU-Mobo setup one has?
      Would appreciate if you could help me understand this concept better.

      P.S. I forgot to mention about the 600W PSU and would be playing my games on a 22″ monitor at 1280res setup. If that also factors in the choice of card.

    8Gb RAM

    Win 8.1
    I want to play Gta 5, CoD AW, The Crew, AC Unity, CoD Ghost.
    Which graphic card should I buy?
    My budget is Rs.5000 – Rs.10000.

  11. Guyz ,I know that this is the wrong section,but please please help me around.
    I have to perform a clean install of windows 81 from an AIO disk, but it gives an error that no deice driver found.
    Am using iso to install.
    Thanks in advance:-}

    • Did you ever tried to install from this AIO disk before , looks like your copy of windows has issue, you may need a different copy to install.

    • Dear Kanuj,
      This copy works perfectly for my friend
      I had once used a normal copy for win 81 TP and it had worked perfectly,
      and with this one,the installation begins for upgrading from win 7 but I prefer dual boot for now.
      Thanks for Your quick reply.Where should such problems be posted anyways?

  12. The GTX 960 fares better when compared to AMD 280x in performance and is cheaper by almost 5-6k on market. 280x beats it in VRAM. But most of the games today don’t require more than 2GB vram at 1080p. I got the MSI GTX 960 Gaming 2G at 17k. The basic one is available at 16k. At that price it’s a steal. I don’t think it can be beaten in its class. And HD 7950 is very old. The r9 270 uses the same chip, and is basically its upgraded version.

  13. Nice, and informative article , its nice that you take pains to inform “INDIAN” gamers about d new stuff. Can we have an article on different gaming rigs and their performance wrt the GTAV PC. And which rig would be an apt one for the value concerned indian gamers.

    • Dear Anant,

      It depends upon the budget and resolution for 720p would recommend the 270X or nvidia gtx 960. For 1080P nvidia 970 is great. considering 3-4 years of future use.
