Hardware Requirements

Most of the graphics cards that we recommend won’t need an external power connector. These cards work fine just on the PCI Express X16 slot of the motherboard. But some models from some manufacturers might need an 8 Pin connector or more. So do consider the fact on the power supply.

Sometimes just a graphics card can totally change the gaming performance of a computer system. In order to have that, your computer should at least have a reasonably powerful CPU to support the graphics card so it doesn’t bottleneck. We recommend having below listed minimum properties for the best results.

  • 4 GB RAM (Minimum)/ 8 GB (Good), 16 GB (Sweet Spot)
  • Dual-Core processor / Quad-core processor (Better) / Hexa-Core processor (Best)
  • 450 Watts Power Supply (Higher is better)

Our experts have tested a lot of desktop PC and laptop graphics cards. So we have got some idea and experience on this topic. We have experienced and played games with many video cards such as Nvidia GeForce 7200GS, 9400GT, 9500GT, GT 210, 520, 610, 820M, 755M SLI, GTX 1050 Ti, RTX 2070, GTX1080 Ti, etc. Our biggest agendas were to play PC games, edit videos using Adobe Premiere Pro, and watch high-resolution videos. Usually, the gaming cards do give good power in editing works as well.

Overview of the Graphics Cards

We want to provide some information about these so that you can get a good idea. We especially want to list out the specifications. This helps to make even wiser decisions. It is very important because names and prices can be deceiving. Many graphics cards have similar names, but their performance difference can be large. Just listing out the graphics card price in Nepal may not be enough. So in order to provide highlights of the hardware, we have details of some of the products.

GeForce GT 210

This was launched in 2009 and it is more than 10 years old. Just like the Core 2 Duo, it is still in circulation due to its price. I also used it in 2010 and played games such as Call of Duty MW3, Battlefield 3, and Need For Speed Hot Pursuit. It was quite decent for that time, but now it is quite old. If you just want a video card for monitor output or want multiple monitors. Then and only then we advise you to buy this. Else it is not recommended.

For specifications, GT 210 has 1 GB DDR3 memory with a 64-bit bus. It has 16 Cuda cores, a 520 MHz core clock, and 6.4 GB/s bandwidth. These days onboard graphics or iGPU are better than this. The new Intel’s UHD and Iris graphics are much better than these old cards. So our advice is to stay away from GT 210 now.

GeForce GT 710 and GT 730

Both of these are from 2014, and they have different variants. It means they come in different memory sizes. There are differences in other capabilities as well. The Geforce 710 is a basic card just like GT 210 with few improvements. The 710 is a bit new, so it can be preferred instead of 210. But the Nvidia Geforce 730 is a bit powerful in comparison.

Geforce GT 630 was the previous market leader of this segment. However, it has been completely replaced. The GT 730 is quite good and it can play games like Witches 2 at mid setting. GTA IV and GTA V are also possible with low to mid settings. The GT 730 can also play Witcher 3 at low, medium settings with a good processor. There is a performance difference between different models with different memory. So be careful while choosing and buy the best as far as possible.

GeForce GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti

These are legendary graphics cards that can still pull off great gaming. They can run almost all games in medium to high settings for 720p. You can enjoy smooth 4K playbacks, faster video rendering, and a pleasant gaming experience. These came in 2014, and they were a big hit. The GTX 750 Ti was king of mid-range, just like 1050 Ti was when it came. Many people still use this to play many games at 720p. It can easily play games such as GTA V, Witcher 3, Dirt 3, Call Of Duty Ghosts in low settings in 1366×768.

GeForce GT 1030

The Geforce 1030 is a very good option for gamers in a tight budget. This card can provide great 720p gaming and a decent 1080p gaming experience. It consumes less power and can be found in low profile as well. It means we can use it for pre-built systems as well. This is a very good option for students and people who want a budget-oriented card that can really deliver good results. It can decode H.265 4K video smoothly and it supports up to 3 monitors. We recommend getting GT 1030 if you want good results for the least money. Below this, we don’t recommend anything for now.

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050

These are some of the best cards to buy in the market from the 10 series. Both of these GPUs can provide an exciting and respectable 1080p gaming experience. Players can get around 40-60 FPS at mid to high settings even with the latest titles. Our recommendation is GTX 1050 if you have less money, and Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050 Ti if you can afford it. We have used GTX 1050 Ti for 4K video editing in Premiere Pro and After Effects as well in our office.

The 1050 Ti can do excellent gaming. Its 4 GB VRAM is beneficial compared to the 2 GB VRAM of 1050. These days games demand higher video memory. So better to buy the model with higher memory to get all that frame buffer. We enjoyed playing Need For Speed Payback, Call of Duty: WWII, Battlefield 1, and Devil May Cry 5 on the GTX 1050 Ti.

GeForce GTX 1650 Super and GTX 1650

The 1650 lineup is very popular in the entry-level market for its price and performance. These cards are the successor of the GTX 1050 series. These Turing based cards come with performance uplifts at the same price and give better 1080p performance in newer titles. It is a go-to option for many people in a budget build. We also like the GTX 1650 cards a lot for their price to performance ratio.

GeForce GTX 1660 and GTX 1660 Ti

These are the famous top budget range of video cards in the international market. In the USA, they have very good MSRP pricing and the value proposition is amazing. In Nepal, India, and other Asian markets, the price is higher. Despite the cost, these are taken as the best value product. GTX 1660 is a 16 series card, and it can push lots of games to more than 60 fps in 1080p in mid to high settings. The 1660 Super version is the 16 series successor, and it comes with even better improvements. Then there is GTX 1660 Ti which is the top level card for the upper budget segment. Let us see their differences.

The Radeon RX 550 is an entry-level graphics card from AMD, while the RX 560 is a mid-range one. These are quite different because their architecture is also different. Thus we get very different performance results in games. The 550 is cheaper and is a good choice for people on a tight budget.

Older and Popular video cards

People still buy older models because they can still get their work done with them. Some people just need a card to connect a monitor with HDMI. Some just buy for home media and entertainment setup. While some use them for setting up multiple monitors. Still, these products can give good performance for gaming in lower resolution. Therefore some old products are still in circulation.

1) Geforce GT 520: This is the next stop after GT 210. It has updated specs and better power. We managed to play Witcher 2 in low settings with this graphics card on our desktop. It looks just like the other entry-level cards in terms of design.

2) Geforce GT 610: It is a bit updated next-generation version of the GT 520. The performance is just a bit more than its predecessor. We actually suggest always get the newer generation if possible.

3) Nvidia Geforce GTX 550 Ti: The 500 series of Nvidia was very popular in the market. This was a champion of 2011. It is also mid-level hardware but now it is obsolete. The GTX 550 Ti has 1 GB GDDR5 VRAM and 192 Cuda Cores. It is still selling on many Chinese websites with fake names and model numbers.

Analysis of graphics card price in Nepal? Why are video cards so expensive?

Almost everyone asks the reason why the graphics card price in Nepal is so high. This question is genuine and everyone asks. Nobody likes the highest cost. Not even the sellers and distributors. Firstly if the cost is unreasonably high, people don’t buy and start finding alternatives. Most people buy from India or have their friends buy it from abroad. This causes fewer sales in the Nepali market. As a result, retailers also can’t earn much, and distributors also take a hit. The company also needs to make money from the market. Therefore it raises the MRP to make more profit as far as possible from each sale.

If a company can’t make a lot of profit from a large sales number, it tries to make most of the smaller sales volume it has. Thus the product gets expensive in certain regions. This is why electronics are cheaper in the USA and other European countries compared to Nepal and other Asian countries. It is our understanding, and we got this idea from a few other market experts too. The distributors also tell that the price of these cards is marked higher by the company itself. Then comes taxes, margins, profits, and retail costs. So all of this causes graphics cards to be expensive.

Suggestion and Conclusion

We know that graphics card improves gaming performance, work performance, rendering speed and video playback. It can also provide more outputs for different displays. In many tests, video editors have found that having a graphics card improves performance by a huge margin. If gaming is your primary goal, then we always recommend you to invest in good graphics cards because only that can make a big difference.

Some suggestions are GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1660 Super for high frame rate superior 1080p and 1440p gaming. Similarly, our choice is GTX 1650 Super or GTX 1050 Ti for the best performance 1080p gaming. These work great on any type of system and provide superb value. Then there is RX 570 and RX 560 as well from AMD for 1080p gaming at high settings. Finally, GT 1030 is also a very good choice for budget consumers with less budget.

Here we have listed entry to medium range GPU available in the market. These graphics cards only work best when they get the appropriate system. Otherwise, their performance is bottle-necked. Our suggestion is to have a decent processor and a sufficient amount of RAM. We know that the graphics card price in Nepal is quite high, but you can find some good deals if you search the market and try your luck in the second-hand market as well.

  1. i have an old p4 based pc, i haven’t used it for long time and now i want to upgrade it. Basically i want more gigs of ram and a suitable graphics card supported by the motherboard.any recommendation??

    1. P4 desktop motherboards have PCI Express X16 slot, you can add good GPU but not high level because of processor limitations. RAM is DDR2 so that is also expensive these days, You can add up to 4 GB RAM Max and GPU upto GTX 460 at max. This won’t bottlenect your system

    2. I recommend a upgrade. Especially multiplayer games such as counter strike war zone and counter strike global offensive require a beast processor,heap of ram and moderate graphics card. Somewhere along core I3 or i5 series, 4Gb of Ram and geforce 1080 series processor.

    1. That is the case. The price difference is huge in market. The price is different according to manufacturer. We saw price difference of 1.5K while buying 1 TB HDD in Newroad within proximity of 5 shops.

        1. Ryzen Apu series??? I am searching for the same option but i think its not available in nepal beacuse it just came out. The price must be maximum 15000 which is perfect for us first time builders. Its performance is same as gt 1030 .

  2. btw whats the price of GTX 960 4gb ddr5 gpu in Nepal and where could i get it? and also price of GTX 960 2gb ddr5 pls reply i want to buy

  3. Where is the best place to buy computer parts in Nepal at cheap price? I want to build my first entry level pc . Also is there ryzen 5 1600 AF in Nepal?

    1. There are lots of shops in Nepal. Most of them are in New Road. We got prices from distributor so they are MRP. Retailers sell a bit cheaply. The best practice is going to shops and asking for quotations and buying. For more details DM us.

  4. Don’t they have GTX 750TI ?
    Why is it hard to find a 750TI card?
    Can you please inform why is it so?
    Thankyou 🙂
