Installing Asus 9800GT Graphics Card

Recently i bought a brand new Asus 9800GT 512 DDR3 RAM Nvidia based graphics card. Price is really down with this card priced just above Rs 6000. The Tri-SLI card looks awesome but its a power hungry beast.There are so many gaming graphics cards to choose from these days. The market stratification is just amazing. At this point, there is probably a card for that will suit the need for just about any purpose you can imagine for playing advanced DX10 games like NFS Shift , CRYSIS 2 etc.
