it may not effect sub 10k cards but will effect the price of anything above 14k.

around 5k, you can check ATI HD5670 which is available for some 5.5k-6k

those 22" FullHD displays are at 8.5k-9k right now and also, a 5k card won't be able to power games at FullHD. You need atleast nvidia GTS 250 or ATI HD4850 (around 7k).

5k GPU for a 22" monitor:no:
Yours is a gaming rig right? Invest more on the GPU. Slightly extend your budget and go for a HD5770. If on a very tight budget then consider getting a HD 4850 ~ 6.5k.

Everyone here insisted on a decent PSU still you went for an unknown brand for a HD4850.:S Pls exchange this for a Gigabyte Superb 460 ~ 2.2k (in PrimeABGB) ASAP.

It's a common mistake Everyone does. A quality psi is as important as a good CPU. With hd4850 onboard, it's very imp to have good pau. Bettr go and exchange it with better psu. Not zebronics intex mercury iball shit. Gigabyte superb 460w should do good

The Enterage PSU i a quality one.... been using its 600Watts for 4 years now without any problems never needed replaced it & my system runs 20 hours a day... Although with that HD4850 you should have at least gotten 500 watts....

For those who don't know Enterage is a brand name of chieftec. check your PSU it'll be mentioned on the side somewhere.
