Am a PC gamer + 3d artist by profession . Recently i decided to get my pc updated..For that i need
Processor - core 2 quad (2.4 ghz,2.53 ghz )
RAM- 2 x 2gb DDR2
For nvidia cards - Supporting CUDA,hybrid tech for nvidia 9 series cards ,Having 2 pcie 2.0 slots 16 x each
For ati cards - no idea
SMPS - Whatever is required ,cooler master etc (500-650 W )
Now here are my choices for the gfxs -
1) nvidia cards - 8800 gt,8800 gtx ,8800 gts ( the 1s having pcie 2.0)
and from 9 series (only if they are better than those of 8 series i mentioned)
---- 9800 gtx /9800 gtx +
2) ATi cards - 3870x2,4850,4870
Now my budget for card is close to 15 k(rs).. I guess these 4850 nd 4870 cards are better than even 9800 gtx+ and equal to gtx260 .. nd i heard that next month ati wuld introduce 4850 x2 and 4870 x2...so i guess with that the price of 4870 will go down with that ..right now i guess a 4850 is of 12k nd 4870 is of 18k ..spending more than 15k on a card is not in my budget right now..but if i c a good deal i may even go up (for example 4850 x2 for 16/17 k wen it comes )
and then i could nt figure it out that whether the 4*** series ati crossfire wuld work better than 9 series (if they r better than 8 series) 2 sli cards.. nd then i dont have any idea of what processor and mbd wuld b best for an ATI card...
So you c in case i choose nvidia -my confusion is with the card i choose...
And if i go for ATI - i need to kno the motherboard,processor too which would go just fine with it..as i have never known abt ATI s
ACTUALLY AS YOU SEE MY WHOLE PC S CONFIG CAN BE CHANGED WITH THE CHOICE OF GETTING AN ATI OR NVIDIA.. I mean 9 series has different requirements from a mother board and they recommend nforce chipsets..for ATI i have no idea..
and I wanted to know A good 22" tft/lcd too .. budget for that around 15k only ...samsung.lg.viewsonic etc...
And if you have an idea that in a few weeks the prices of card will go down drastically please do let me know about that too..
Waiting for a prompt reply as i need to buy this stuff max by coming week...

get any card you like. as long as you don't use SLI or CrossfireX u can use any motherboard. And its not worth hoping prices will come down because it wont. The ATi 4850 is currently being considered as best VFM followed by the 9800GTX+.
