    Gigabyte GTX 460 or Gigabyte HD 6850 15.2K
    Delta 500W 5.8K

    Total: 21K.

    You won't regret. But your processor might bottleneck the GPU, please do some research. And if it does, then go for a HD 5770.

    You CPU will bottleneck a 6850 or a GTX 460 afaik, so either you have to overclock it a hell lot, which isn't a good idea, or just get an HD 5770 for around 11k Then your total will be just around 17k

    A gigabyte 6850 and a thermaltake 450-500w psu should cost around tk20,000 (maybe a bit more). Like Error and Dee said your cpu will be a bottleneck but you can always buy a new cpu (and mobo if required) in the future and keep on using this card.

    But to run it now, he'll need to overclock this E5400 to a really high level, and to do that, he'll need an aftermarket cooler, so buying the 5770 will be the best idea, and as he is not that much of a hard-core gamer which i am presuming from his above post, the 5770 wil save him some bucks too :/

    Bytheway i couldnt prevent myself from doing some research and found out that even 5770 may be bottlenecked by my cpu in some games.....its better if i go for 5750 which wont be a problem...but i would like ask if i buy 5750 for example, would i still have to use a branded psu as the 5750 eats 89watt max juice out from a psu. I have a default psu came with my vision casing which tells it can give 450watt( dont know the real output though) of juice with 1x 6pin power connector. Please advice....

    ---------- Post added at 23:14 ---------- Previous post was at 23:11 ----------

    @wolf bro
    error bro is right, im a casual gamer and cpu-mobo upgrade is far away from me now, i will scrap my whole pc and buy a new one after maybe 1-2years. But still thanx for the advice.

    ---------- Post added at 23:19 ---------- Previous post was at 23:14 ----------

    The thing is i just dont wanna miss the alluring titles went out in 2010 and the up-comings in 2011(say dirt 3, probably at lower settings) until its too late.....

    You probably made a smart call wanting to buy a 5750 now, especially since you plan on buying a whole pc after 1-2 yrs. As you know 5750 only needs 1*6pin, but I don't know about the quality of the psu you are using. Both 5750 and especially 5770 are great cards in terms of bang for the buck .

    If you just want to run the games at low settings and be happy eith it, then go for the 5750 as you'll not need to buy a psu i suppose saves a lot of bucks

    go for atleast amd 5770, 5750 kenar kuno mane hoy na. Price difference 1k or 1.5k may be, but performance difference not negligible.about cpu bottleneck, come on, oc a little bit, btw, i don't think it will cause any problem for 90% games.some games r cpu sensitive, but they r rare.if u have a budget of 20k, get amd 5770 & delta or thermaltake 500w psu. Sobai psu sacrifice korte chay, but u should consider ur gpu safety.today 500 w psu is minimum standard, it will be good 4 ur future upgrade also.

    To run 5750 you can use the deluxe psu which is a good quality product. But before buying PSU you should check here.

    The GTX 460 and HD 6850 does need a decent PSU and CPU combination. (IMO the vision case PSU provides 300-350 max), so if you are considering Nvidia then i think GTS 450 will be a good choice if you are onto some gaming or go for 5770 from AMD. HD 5750 (doesnt need that much power compare to others) it also is a decent card, but at least get a PSU of min 450 true watts from TT or delta to run these. I dont think they will bottleneck the 5400, and i agree with previous comment...most games are mainly depends on Gpu rather than Cpu to run well.

    Simple solution,he can upgrade his cpu latter.And even if GTX 460/6850 bottleneck his cpu it will give more FPS than GTS 450,5770.

    You bought a Q8400,G41 mobo rather not buying a better GPU *_*. Q8400 is not so good in Quad core series also not good for OC & G41 is a value board.Plus now you are using 9400 GT :/

    Bottleneck-ing or whatever get the latest one...
    GTX 460 or 6850 + a decent TT TR2 500w or Delta 500w.

    @RonxGamer , bro gtx 460 needs 2 6pin connector, it is more power hungry than amd 5750, 5770, 6850, 6870.
    i think everybody should agree, the best for the buyer will be a 5770 or 6850. I don't think cpu bottelneck will be a issue, but if, then overclock cpu or underclock gpu.and buyer should get a decent psu, atleast 500 w as he has a good budget.

    Well, it totally depends upon him, coz he wrote that he doesn't game that much.. Anyway, its his choice

    It was onek age Forget about my PC, its totally messed up Q8400 coz that was available at that time, nd about OC potential, I never even OC'd my Q8400 and i don't think i'll even need to

    About the 9400GT, didn't need to buy a new one after my 4850 died, so this does to job nd I know G41 is a value board, but that too does the job. More of a sound geek

    Though it's a power hungry it can be run by a 500 watt psu .6850 wont be a bad choice either but not 5770 IMO :\
