I have Gigabyte B85M-D3H motherboard along with corsair 650 power and intel i5 and 8 Gb corsair vengeance ram . I want to know if GTX 1660 Super will be compatible with the motherboard or not?
And also if possible can you suggest me the best graphics card under 20 k INR?

Welcome to Toms Hardware @ashu1994!
A common misconception people do is they get paranoid over motherboards not having a PCI-E slot. However I would only worry about very old motherboards. Yours however, will work fine. Your corsair unit, regardless of what quality, will work fine as the GTX1660 super isn't a power hungry card. However I would recommend spending a few extra bucks on 8GB ram because I found 16GB for the same price as the 8GB ram and it was 200mhz more. Hope this helps

Also can you suggest me graphics cards under 20k INR for 2 3 year of future proof gaming even high settings will work in future....And which company to buy as in Zotac, Gigabyte or Asus?

Unless your prices are lower, for 20k (£210) you can purchase a GTX1660 and maybe a super if you have a little more money. Like you wanted. It can run all high and even ultra in some games, and it will last about 2 years before having to bump down settings in 90% of games.

If you only care about the price, Colorful and Inno3d have their 1660 Super listed under or around 20K on PrimeABGB and IT Depot. I bought an Inno3d 1660 Super a few days ago over the Colorful card, because Inno3d is more popular in India, and has a beefier heatsink. But personally, I think that Zotac cards are way cooler (in looks, not temps).
