A Graphics card is a computer peripheral that improves the gaming performance as well as the quality of the images/videos rendered on your computer’s monitor or laptop’s screen. To be honest, there wouldn’t be any user who never received the message “The game is not compatible with your PC”.

This message appears because your laptop’s or computer’s RAM, VRAM, processor or the motherboard is outdated. In such situations, you will have to upgrade your system’s hardware.

If your computer lacks a video card, but it has a good processor and enough RAM to run games, go through the complete article as we have shared a list of the best graphics card for gaming for a budget within Rs 5000, 15000, 10000, 25000, and 20000. The cards we’ve shared in this article have 2GB, 3GB, 4GB or 6GB VRAM (based on DDR5 architecture).

    • Aayush Dua

      You have to understand that GPUs are not that cheap. They are the heart of a gaming computer/console. They cost a lot if you want to play all games for next two years. Gtx 970 meets the 2 year future proof gaming category. But it costs around 30000 (i know that is a lot). So your best bet is amd radeon r7. It costs around 7000 rs and can play most games released till now at low/lowest settings. But trust me it is not future proof at all.

    • Pramod

      What PSU is he using?

    • Aayush Dua

      Dude no gpu under 12000 can run all games at high setting. Taking witcher 3 (one of the most graphically intensige games), but if can go to 20000 rs then there is gtx 960 and 970 too (some local retailers sell gtx 970 at 23000 rs approx and gtx 960 costs 16000 rs approx). I would recommend 970 to be future proof. Or you can wait for nvidia gtx 1000 series to come out later this year. They perform at twice the speed at almost the same price. And also when the 1000 series comes out the gtx 900 series will go down in price. But overall, if he is in a hurry and cannot spend more than 15000 then buy the gtx 960.
