Nvidia launched 2 new Graphics cards on June 30, 2014, GT730 and GT 740 for the mainstream buyers. The cards will replace the old GT 630 and GT 640 and also will also impact the GT 650 sales somewhat.

The price for GeForce GT 740, it is priced at Rs. 7,199 onwards(yet to see what the prices will be once launched by online retailers), and the GeForce GT 730 is priced at Rs. 4,990 onwards. Both of the graphics cards have multimedia features, supporting things like 3D Vision, multi-monitor gaming, and 4K support. Zotac India has listed the same with the model details on their website.

The cards have 2 versions and the version with GDDR5 is much better and faster and I would recommend going ahead with the GDDR5 version only though it has lower memory 1gb compared to the DDR3 version with 2Gb.

The cards were launched in the US for 89$ and 75$ are cheaper by Indian Launch Price of both the cards by 35% and 11% respectively while considering dollar exchange rate @ Rs. 60 for 1 dollar.

The Specifications are listed below for both the DDR3 and DDR5 version. There is a Fermi architecture based GT 730 also which may not be a worthy purchase.
