Best budget graphics cards for around Rs10k
Picking a graphics card for your PC and specific needs isn’t easy. And it isn’t cheap either. Here we tell you about a few great budget options to turn your PC into a gaming station.
Although detailed graphics card specifications and reviews are great — assuming you have the time to do the research and the know-how to pick the best one for you — reading through the myriad options isn’t. And, at the end of the day, you need to know what the best graphics card is for your money. So, if you don’t have the time to look up benchmarks or if you don’t feel confident enough in your ability to pick the right card, then fear not. We’ve compiled a simple list of the best budget gaming graphics cards.

As you can see from the table, the best card to pick, based on its specs and what it offers, would be the AMD R7 260X. Even though you can’t boost GPU clock speeds, it’s already the fastest among the ones we’ve picked. It also has the most shading units and fastest memory clock.
The AMD R7 250X and the Nvidia GTX 750 are also worth considering. However, the latter has only 1GB of on-board memory, which might prove insufficient.
And remember: don’t just blindly pick a card; it may not be compatible with your PC. While we’ve given you a few budget options, make sure that a card is compatible with your PC before you buy.
