    1- Out of those two, the 9500GT is the better one.
    2- Quote from a Yahoo Answers site (may be unreliable, not sure. have not used it myself)

    3- Don't quite understand the third question. A wireless modem can provide Wifi (that's how users connect- there would not be an ethernet cable, but assuming a system has a Wifi card, one can connect wirelessly to a wireless router / modem).

    (1)You're not going to get a 100% answer here because we don't know the context of your hardware system. For example, we don't know whether your motherboard has the rights PCi Express Slot(s) for a graphics card, let alone how powerful your PSU is (and what your processor is) not knowing these things makes purchasing hardware ... rather troublesome. Of the two cards you mentioned the 9500 GT is the stronger card, but they're both considerably outdated.

    (2) UseNext? I think you mean UseNet and yes, it's quite fast, but it's only going to be as fast as the thorough-put of your connection. If you don't have a good internet connection it's not going to likely be very fast.

    (3) This is a very hard question to understand, rephrase it please. If you give us more context then we'll be able to help better. What do you want to use this connection for? Wifi is the term for wireless ethernet connections. Whether or not something runs both is going to be dependent on the Cable-Modem/Router (and probably up to your ISP as well). Talk to them about it.

    The 9500gt is better than the 8400gs. Gs marks the cheapest cutback version of the gpu, and the 9xxx series is the same as the 8xxx series only with a smaller chip process, which means less power consumed and heat produced.

    Regarding your question on networking, you can get wireless network hubs or use a WiFi extender/repeater to add WiFi to a non wireless network. If you want to play multiplayer games across multiple networks, you will probably have to bridge them. I cba to explain in detail right now though, since its annoying to grab the resources from a mobile phone (I'm in a queue for the iPad 2 launch right now).

    Remember that shops have to charge an overhead because they need to pay the cost of keeping the shop open. The Internet has no land rental charge, so it's typically cheaper.

    Also on eBay, most people want to rip you off, so its not the most reliable of sites when finding out the prices.

    so which to prefer the best graphics card on rs 5000.

    also i think my psu is stronger because a sticker is pasted there written "AC 220V"
    is it ok

    I Have heard that they require 400W or more W

    and what is the difference between W(watt) and V(volt).

    hey i got back my biostar nvidia geforce 8400gs 512mb.

    i know that it does not supports directx 11 but windows 7 comes with built-in direct x 11.

    so when I plugged in my graphics card the screen turned yellow and the resolutions were reset.After some time the screen appeared ok but then till now it has yellow lining on it.

    what can it be?

    Yellow screens... that's a new one to me. I've seen black, white, blue, green and red screens, but not yellow.
