Hi

I'm planning to buy a graphics card to replace my current card, an NVidia GeForce 9500GT 1 GB (DDR2). My budget is of INR Rs. 8000. On inquiring at my local retailer, I found out that the best card I can get for that range is Gigabyte 450 GTS 1GB DDR5 (I'm prefer NVidia cards to AMD).

Is this a good choice? Also, here are my system specs. Is my CPU good enough so as to not bottleneck games while running them?

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7300, 2653 MHz
RAM: Transcend 2 x 2GB DDR2-800 SDRAM
Monitor: Dell ST2210 [22" LCD]
Motherboard: Intel DG35EC
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
HDD: 250 + 500 GB SATA

Is your PC a pre-built machine (i.e. HP, Dell etc)? If so, I would advice looking at a possible power supply upgrade aswell as they are often shipped with a PSU that is only good enough to power the components it came with.

No, its a custom built PC. I replaced the stock Power Supply with a 450W one.
