Best Graphics Cards Price Rs 20000 India

The latest PC Games like Witcher 3, Far Cry 4, GTA 5, Assassin’s Creed Unity, and Battlefield Hardline have a huge need for high-end graphics cards. There is now a potent need to upgrade some of that old junk and put some fresh life in your Gaming PC’s if you wish to enjoy the next-gen AAA games at good FPS.

We would like to reduce the money spent on the suggestions shared below and include some of the best value for money Graphics card deals which you can get from top retailers like Amazon, Flipkart or Snapdeal.

Some graphics card brands command a premium pricing compared to others.  The graphics card coolers and PCB along with build quality substantially increase the cost of graphics cards, and different brands have differential pricing.

Gigabyte, Asus, and MSI are usually priced higher and offer fair performance and cooling efficiency compared to some other brands. There are other brands like Zotac, Sapphire, Inno 3D which also have good graphics cards and warranty policy in India.

To help Gamers decide which graphics card will suit best with there Gaming PC, I am sharing along with each graphics card approx PC total cost, monitor resolution, and suitable processor. This may be some help for the beginners, to decide the compatible parts with the graphics card.

For example, an AMD 270X will not be able to render graphics on high or ultra on 2K or 4K resolution for games like GTA 5 and Assassin’s Creed Unity. Similarly, you don’t need a GTX 970 for a monitor with a 720P resolution a GTX 960 is more than enough.

Monitor resolution is chosen based on the ability of the graphics card to render latest PC games at medium/high/ultra. Processors are recommended to make the whole built stable and remove bottlenecks as well as to avoid overspend on the processor and cost-cutting on the GPU.

Let’s Begin with the Best Graphics card for Rs. 15,000.

Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon Dual-X R9 270X

The AMD R9 -270X is the best graphics card you can purchase if you have a budget of Rs. 12,000 to Rs. 15,000 I would recommend getting the 2 GB GDDR5 version of AMD R9 270X for best Gaming performance.

Price – Rs. 14,900
Suitable for Resolution – 720P or max 1080P
Gaming PC Build Price Range – 50,000 to 60,000

  • Warranty – 3 years warranty

AMD 270X has 2 GB GDDR5 memory which is enough, and you should not go for the 4 GB model as the processor on this 270X will run out of steam even before it uses all that VRAM. The 4 GB graphics card with this architecture are marketing gimmicks; you will not require 4 GB for 1080 P gaming and for 2K or 4K gaming the card is not suitable.

I would recommend a better card for that. In case you are planning to buy 4 GB version of the 270X, I would strongly suggest buying the GTX 960 instead which will offer 10-20% better performance compared to the  AMD R9 – 270X for a slightly higher price.

Nvidia GTX 960 – Best Graphics Cards Price Rs 20000 India.

Next in the recommendation list is the Nvidia GTX 960 which is a fantastic Graphics card and overclocks well. It is meant for 1080 P Gaming, and you can even use it at a resolution of  1600*900 or 720P. The card will be able to Max out some of the latest titles and give above 40 FPS in most games at medium to high settings.

Asus Strix GTX 960 DC2OC graphics card

Nvidia GTX 960 was launched in early 2015 and belongs to the Maxwell architecture. The graphics card is highly energy efficient and offers great performance with least possible power consumption. You can read more about the performance of Nvidia GTX 960 here and can look at the round-up of all brands for Nvidia GTX 960.

Compared to the Nvidia GTX 760 which you will also be able to purchase around 15K to 17K, Nvidia GTX 960 offers a rough 10% performance upgrade which is significant. I would suggest you go with the GTX 960 as it is fully compatible with the DirectX 12 which is supposed to come in summer along with the Windows 10 release by Microsoft.

Asus Nvidia GTX 960 has a good design, efficient cooling, and high performance and is currently available at a very reasonable price. Would recommend buying the Asus or Gigabyte for GTX 960. Gigabyte G1 is more expensive in India though it is a good graphics card. The Asus Strix cooler is very quiet and makes the PC very silent and cooler kicks in only after a threshold temperature. It may be expensive by Rs. 1,000, but that money is well spent if you are considering to buy the graphics card for 2-3 years.

The Nvidia GTX 960 is fast and furious; the silent powerhouse can max out many AAA titles. If you are looking to replace those old GT 630, 640, 650 or up to 750 ti or from AMD HD 7770 or lower it is a great graphics card to buy. The performance difference you will get out of it is going to make all your games run smoother and with high settings.

AMD R9 280X Best Graphics card Under Rs. 25,000

The AMD R9 280X is a rebranded AMD HD 7970 a monster of a graphics card, with all that weight and muscle you can feel it raring to render some incredible graphics. The AMD 280X is the best fit if you can’t afford to buy a GTX 970 but want something better than the 128 Bit 2 GB Nvidia GTX 960.

AMD Sapphire Dual X 280X Graphics card

We heard lots of rumors about the Nvidia GTX 960 ti surfacing, but so far the stories have no weight, and we are far away from getting Nvidia GTX 960 ti. Last week there was news about the latest AMD 300 series, the much-hyped 380X and 390X are expected to make a debut on 18 June 2015. It is yet not confirmed that they will be launched on 18th June.

Even if the new cards are launched, the pricing will play a pivotal role to decide the success. The graphics card pricing in India is horribly high, a GTX 960 was launched as $200 card in the US and we need to shell out Rs. 18,000 for it equivalent to US $300. The pricing of graphics card is very high in some other Asian countries as well.

Coming back to our favorite AMD R9 280X, the graphics card is great regarding performance and come very close to the Nvidia GTX 770 and leads the Nvidia GTX 960 by roughly 10-15% in all modern games. It is also compatible with the DX 12, and you can buy it for gaming on 1080 P. The only major drawback is you need a massive PSU with the AMD R9- 280X.

Gaming PC Build Price Range – 60,000 to 75,000

Nvidia GTX 970 Best Graphics card Under Rs. 30,000 

We have not included the GTX 770 in this list of best cards as the price is very close to the GTX 970 and if you are planning to get the GTX 770, I would strongly suggest to change plans and get the Uber cool GTX 970. The Nvidia GTX 970 is one of the best graphics cards you can buy for gaming right now; it is perfect for 1080P or 2k gaming.

The GTX 970 ruined the party for AMD 290 and 290X buyers who bought the graphics card in 2014 when a much cheaper GTX 970  burnt the 290X in some of the AAA title benchmarks. The AMD 290X was trading at a hefty price tag of Rs 43,000 when Nvidia GTX 970 got launched and was available at Rs. 28,000. Some of the GTX 770 buyers who bought the 770 at Rs. 27,000 to 30,000 told me they want to sell it asap when Nvidia released the pricing for GTX 970.

It can easily blow out all of the current AAA titles with ease, and for the price, it has extraordinary performance. It is faster by 10-25% compared to the 280X or Nvidia GTX 770.

If I have to buy a graphics card for Gaming I will only buy a GTX 970; it is going to run well for next 2-3 years at 1080P or even required in future can be used in SLI.

The Nvidia Maxwell architecture based graphics card is highly efficient and a monster when it comes to pushing the most graphics intensive games.

Also now you can get the new Witcher 3 when you purchase the Nvidia GTX 980, GTX 970 and GTX 960 graphics card, you may have to check with the seller before purchasing the graphics card about the Nvidia offer.
