Smile HELP with buying GPU!!!

Hi, i am not too much on tech stuff,
I want to add a GPU to my currently assembled system.

here are my specs;
Intel E6750 2.66 ghz
Abit Fatal1ty 650i SLI
4GB transcend DDR2 RAM
LG DVDRW
Seagate 500GB
Windows Professional Xp
A-open 600W ATX PSU

i am looking for a GPU which will support Crysis on at least high settings and directX 10

and of course i have Windows Vista already, but wont open the retail box till i finish off with a GPU
my budget is 350$ (entire 5 months saving for a student like me)

i have looked and thought for getting 8800GT 512MB

but i am looking for a site where they will ship to India for 350$

here they charge it for like 535$ for 8800GT(too much)

yeah sure:laughing: but i spent endless time trying to get one that will ship to india. Here they charge like rs 21,000+ (535$) and you get it on US online site for like Rs 10,760(269$ incl+shipping).
so like
RS 21000-10760=means major ripoff!

Still im sure the shipping may add a substantial amount to the price.

A tom's hardware review says the cheapest place to buy hardware is germany, so you might want to browse some german sites to see if they allow international shipping
