NVIDIA's 200 series of graphics cards combines cutting edge technology and advanced capabilities for best-in-class performance. The GTS250 boasts a 2nd Generation NVIDIA Unified Architecture solution for all your most demanding graphic needs. It’s Microsoft Vista ready and equipped with a PCI-Express 2.0 interface. The GTS250 supports 3-way SLI to seriously crank your performance options by using up to three graphics cards for insane flow rates. Support for DirectX 10, OpenGL 2.1, NVIDIA's PureVideoHD, CUDA and PhysX are built in to render even the most intense environmental effects in the latest game titles and bring a brand new video experience to PC users.

The card's core clock runs at 740MHz, relieving your CPU of pixel crunching duty. Data surges through the GTS250's 128 stream processors fed by 1GB of 256-bit 1850MHz GDDR3 memory. The Geforce 250GTS supports a maximum digital resolution of 2560x1600 over its dual-link DVI output, or 1920x1080 resolution via the HDMI output.

The GTS250 delivers fluid frame rates and HD video with solid performance. If your motherboard can take it, the GTS250 can dish it out.

  • newegg NVIDIA PhysX-Ready With NVIDIA’s PhysX physics engine, the GeForce GTS250 creates the most compelling physical effects that mimic the real word, making your gaming experience a truly immersive one.
  • newegg 3-way NVIDIA SLI Technology By implementing 3-way AFR (Alternate Frame Rendering), 3-way NVIDIA SLI technology brings up to 2.8X performance increase over a single GPU configuration, taking extreme gaming to a whole new level.
  • newegg NVIDIA CUDA Technology CUDA technology unlocks the processing power of the GeForce GTS250 to solve the most demanding computer-intensive tasks - such as video encoding - in a fraction of the time required on a CPU, so you can work and play at full speed.
  • newegg NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology The combination of high-definition video decoding acceleration and post-processing delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color and precise image scaling for all video content, especially movies.
  • newegg NVIDIA HybridPower Technology Designed for PC enthusiasts and hard-core gamers, HybridPower Technology switches graphics processing from the GeForce GTS250 graphics card to your motherboard GeForce GPU when running less graphics-intensive applications for reduced energy consumption, quieter operation, and less heat generation.
  • newegg PCI Express 2.0 Interface The PCI Express 2.0 interface delivers an ultra-high data rate of up to 16 GB/s, and is backward compatible with PCI Express x16 (PCI-E 1.0), so you can upgrade the graphics of your existing system with the Gigabyte GV-N250ZL-1GI.

Good card, for the money. 3/15/2010 7:52:07 PM

Pros: -Cheap
-Runs reasonably well.
-Comes with an overclock program, always nice.
-SLi compatible.

Cons: -Gets pretty hot(70+ with overclock at max load, 65ish w/o oc)This could be the way I have it setup though, might be able to cool it when I get another fan this week.

Overall Review: -The notifications and such are in Engrish.
-Probably picking up another on of these once Fermi comes out. Should drop the price a bit, and let me theow another one in my build.

Plays games wonderfully without melting itself 3/5/2010 11:26:05 AM

Pros: I wasn't expecting this card to play everything I threw at it at unnecessarily high levels, but it does. And it has no problem with heat either.

And it's not as gigantic as others, from what I hear.

Cons: I honestly can't find a thing wrong with it.

Good videocard 1/10/2010 8:16:53 PM

Pros: Good power, Runs most my game on high settings, plugged it in and windows 7 updated the drivers automatically without a hitch, plenty of cooling with that huge Zalman fan on it. You can barely hear the fan on this thing going. Only time I hear it working is when everything in the house is off and it's deathly quiet around.

Cons: It doesn't do my laundry?

Overall Review: Some people say this is just a repackaged 9800GTX+ on a few years old technology. I seen some reviews and looked them up but all the ones I have seen show it actually performs better even if it is the same architecture. Also all the reviews I saw showed this thing stayed way cooler with the cooling system on it than any other card in the range or on par with 1 or 2 others. Not a bad card and will not be disappointed.

Gigabyte GV-N250Zl-IGI 8/19/2009 8:42:43 AM

Pros: Great card! And it doesn't even need a big psu...
With this card I play crysis warhead on full graphics aa x16.
The card gives me excellent performance and it never lagged before.

Cons: It's a bit loud when the pc is turned on but when you are in a game you won't even notice it.

Overall Review: This is a really good card and you won't be disappointed but i know for a fact that msi cards is also worth it.

Just not sure 8/5/2009 7:39:19 AM

Pros: I was all excited when I put my new pc together and then I noticed that I had to wait to use this video card because I still need the s-video out until I get an hdmi cable. I am a DJ though so I will figure it all out...For the few hours that I had this card in my pc (my first solo build) it seemed to do great though and it cloned off ok to watch movies on my Toshiba 32" lcd hdtv!

Cons: None that I have found yet but I am not a big time gamer either...not yet anyway!

Overall Review: I can't wait to use this card and learn more about gaming with my pc since I am now unable to work due to 4 herniated discs and spinal stenosis!
One thing I have noticed though is that other people have said the fan on this card is extremely loud and for whatever reason...I don't agree with that...while I was using it this card was perfect and it doesn't make any more noise than my Chaintech 8600...I don't even notice it running!
