for 4-5k the absolute best graphics card is the amd radeon 6670 ddr3.
also get another 2gb of ram as just 2gb is not sufficient for todays demanding games.
dont worry abt clocks and all just install the graphics card in the pcie x16 slot download and install the latest amd drivers and you are good to go

This should do the trick

http://www.flipkart.com/gigabyte-amd-ati-radeon-hd-6670-2-gb-ddr3-gv-r667d3-2gi-graphics-card/p/itmdfbpttxsmyxxu?pid=GRCDFBPSDSEKGJDZ&ref=19961eaf-3e80-4267-9666-e464ad128a9d&srno=t_2&otracker=from-search&query=6670

But I would recommend

And If you find this one locally, Its supposed to be the best in 6670 lines. Even the looks are great.

Don't go for ddr3. Extend your buget by 5-600 and get a ddr5 6670 atleast. DDR3 will have a 10fps difference in most games and that is the gap between playable and non playable in low end cards.

Here is the ram you should look for.

Recommend the kingston one. Havent had many good reviews for transcend lately.



If you are extremely tight on budget only then go for ddr3 and it will be a bad investment seeing the gddr5 version is 1k more. But still it will be fine in most games.


And you can hold off the ram purchase for a while and invest in gfx. 2 gb ram will suffice for most games all you have to make sure is to free it before you play.

PS : I am planning on getting a 6670 ddr5 myself as soon as my problem gets solved.. :/

15-20% less performance than a 6670 and 6670 has more shaders so it will benifit from shader intensive titles. You can go for 5670gddr5 if you can live with;slight less performance and as 6670 is newer it has less power eq and less heat. Btw where do you live for getting 5670 so cheap?

Sorry for spells and typos, typing from phone on TSH is hard

from nehruplace price list..
i know hd6670 is better than hd5670 but its price is also comparatively high as hd 6670 gddr5 is of 6000 and hd 5670 is of 4300, the difference of 1700 :|

Get the HIS version of 5670 its supposed to be good. But 6670 is available for 5700 in flipkart which I just ordered. So you can see if you can get that :p

A good idea would be a 5670 + 2gb ddr2 ram as i can see you will be doing it for the first time this card will keep you happy enough.. :p
Next aim for a big processor and motherboard and ram upgrade :p
