    I notice that the card has dual monitor support can i save money if i choose a card with a single monitor support because i don't think i will be using two monitors anytime in the near future.

    Not really; they all do.
    You can hunt around for better deals on the 6850 elsewhere though, I'm sure you could get it for a bit less.

    Can you suggest a card in nvidia series please.Thanks for helping just keeping options open.Also newegg does not offer shipping to India so the psu will be difficult to find here.

    I would take the Radeon HD 6870. It is the best card that you can get within your budget. If you insist on Nvidia then I would take the Geforce GTX 560.
