NVIDIA's 200 series of graphics cards combines cutting edge technology and advanced capabilities for best-in-class performance. The GTS250 is a balanced solution for all your 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 to for insane flow rates.

The card's core clock runs at 760MHz, relieving your CPU of pixel crunching duty. Data surges through the GTS250's 128 stream processors fed by 512MB of 256-bit 2300MHz GDDR3 memory. Twin dual-linked DVI and 400 MHz RAMDAC lets you display 2560 x 1600 resolution video and graphics on even the largest monitors. Support for DirectX 10, OpenGL 3.0, NVIDIA's PureVideoHD, CUDA and PhysX-ready are built in to render even the most intense environmental effects or HD DVD video with brilliant clarity.

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

Pros: This particular video card has been in more than 10 computers over the years and hasn't failed me at all yet. Also been damp, outdoors, and handled roughly throughout its extensive life.

Cons: Rather large.

Sweetness 11/18/2009 7:07:36 PM

Pros: This graphics card rocks. I upgraded from a HIS radeon 4670 (which was very good too) to the gts 250 and i noticed a difference. You can even overclock it in windows display properties!!

Cons: The fan was really loud at the beginning, but after the driver installed - which was perfect installation - there was not much noise.

Overall Review: This graphics card is the bomb. Much cheaper than the gtx 260 and still kicks and has a lot of power. If your thinking about this one, get it. It is very good.

Good Stuff 11/7/2009 8:44:26 PM

Pros: So far it's running cool. I manually put the fan to 100% and it hits 51C while folding. It idles in the low 30s....quite cool running. Fan is quiet, and works well. The card is light overall, and seems pretty well built: it's MSI...they tend to make good things (never had a bad thing from them myself).

Cons: I normally consider having zero heatinks on the RAM a bad thing...and I still do. However, having touched a chip while it was in the middle of a game (UT3) revealed that it's barely warm. Maybe it doesn't need much cooling.

Overall Review: This is a stopgap card for the moment, as I'm waiting for something with a bit more muscle to come in the mail, and this will become a physx number cruncher.
Also: this has been the first time in years that Newegg didn't pack something 110% perfect...the box containing the card was sitting on a lot of folded paper in the top of the shipping box. No damage, but it was a little less than I've seen in the past 6 years I've been using this site. Still, no harm-no foul.

To Reviewer Bob 10/26/2009 11:20:22 PM

Pros: Bob, check your shroud around the fan. I had the same problem. It was making an awful mettalic clanking sound when I increased my fan speed above 60%. Come to find out it was hitting the black shroud/cover. So I pulled it up a bit right around the fan and now it's great. I have it running at 60% under load and 30% at idle with the temps I described in my earlier post.

Cons: none

Overall Review: none

Bad fan 10/23/2009 4:03:30 AM

Pros: Supposedly it's fast, but...

Cons: That doesn't matter much because the fan is clanky and incredibly loud. It rattles terribly - it's obviously not running smoothly. This isn't just your normal loud fan - it's obviously going to break within a short time.

Overall Review: Luckily I have an extra Zalman GPU cooler, so hopefully that will work. It seems to be working fine so far. Newegg has had a lot of returns on this item - they put a few open boxes of these on the website every day. So be careful...

Great card! 10/20/2009 4:23:06 PM

Pros: I got one of these cards to replace 2 8500 GT's that were running in SLI. I can not begin to explain what a difference this card makes! I can play Left 4 Dead and Team Fortress 2 with every single option set to its highest setting with no slowdown. I can also run Empire: Total War on all max settings with very little slowdown when zoomed in on about 300 troops duking it out. That might not even be the card, because the system I run isn't exactly a top of the line rig.

Cons: About 4 days after I got the card the video driver/card crashed when I clicked out of a tab in Firefox. However, that was about 3 weeks ago and have not had any other problems since then.

Overall Review: This is a great card that will run anything you throw at it and make it look good!
