I am an avid gamer, and would like to buy a new graphics card. Could you please suggest a few options worth considering?

—    Since you haven’t specified a budget, we will list some cards that stand out under different price points… Under 10,000: For gamers on a budget, we suggest the AMD HD 7770 (1GB), which sells for around 8,500. This card can handle most games at FullHD resolution, though with offerings like Crysis 3 you may have to sacrifice graphics effects for smoother game play.

Between 10,000 and 15,000: The AMD HD 7790 (2GB) with a price of around 11,000 gets our vote here.

Between 15,000 and 20,000: The Nvidia GTX 760 (2GB) offers fantastic ‘value for money’ at 20,000. It supports all contemporary games with maximum graphics settings, and has enough horsepower to stay relevant for the next couple of years.

Between 20,000 to 30,000: None. No card in this price bracket offers any advantage over the GTX 760.

Above 30,000: If you intend to play a game on a 30-inch or 27-inch FullHD monitor, consider the AMD HD 7970 GHz Edition (3GB). Also, the additional RAM in this card could help in future games that might have such memory requirements.
