    It's the NVidia GeForce GTS 250 (512MB)


    It seems pretty good, since I go by the golden rule of "If it has another letter following 'GT', it kicks ass".

    My specs include a Quad Core 2.4GHz CPU, 4GB's of RAM, a 1680x1050 display, and Windows 7.

    i go for "if has a big number on it, or if it has another letter than GT on it, it rocks"

    It should be fine, I have one in my other PC I use for LANs (Phenom II + GTS250).
    But you should either stretch for the 1GB version or get a GTX260 if you can.
    Now, it plays all my Valve games (including L4D, TF2 etc) bouncing off the 60FPS limiter at 1920x1080. It plays Fallout 3 fine, gets a bit sketchy in the really foggy bits in places like Point Lookout.
    I am yet to try GTAIV and Oblivion but I am under the impression Oblivion isn't as resource hungry as Fallout 3. Crysis it sits on about 30FPS with 4x AA (High IIRC).

    nah go for gtx 260 core 216, the gts 250 isnt worth it, spend a little more and get a big differance in preformance

    Listen to me!

    Get the GeForce 9800GTX+ Superclocked!

    It's better, trust me. It's better!

    Compare the specs on NewEgg. The 9800GTX+ Superclocked IS better.

    Pfft, your 'Superclocked' version is something that can be done with something like EVGA Precision in half a second.

    Edit: Its actually the same speeds as a standard EVGA GTS250... 756MHz core with 1100MHz memory

    I'm not trying to make a big deal about the 'superclocked' part, that's just the name of it.

    And what's good about that is that it's sent from the factory like that.
    Which means you can clock it even higher.

    And I'm only comparing that card to the one he had because I have it, and they're pretty identical. I was actually deciding between those two, but ended up with the Superclocked version.

    Also, we don't know how much money Cam is spending. The SSC version is only $10 more, I think.

    EDIT: Some people may disagree with what I say. The card works for me, though, and I really like it.
