Model GS-250X-YNLA

Singularly powerful, the GTS 250 Core Edition enables gamers to doubleand even tripletheir smack down power by running two or three GTS 250 Core Edition graphics cards in 2-way or 3-way SLI mode, providing ramp up of up to 2.8 times the performance of a single GPU. This first-of-its-kind Core Edition graphics card maximizes its HybridPower technology by enabling users to switch to their GPU to run less graphically intense applications. And its 128 cores clock in at 1836 MHz, making it one of the fastest graphics cards available. Additional features, including NVIDIA PhysX technology, NVIDIA 3D Vision support and full Microsoft DirectX 10 Shadow Model 4.0 support make the GTS 250 Core Edition the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.

# 3-Way SLI capable

# NVIDIA® Unified Architecture with GigaThread technology
# Full Microsoft® DirectX® 10 Shadow Model 4.0 support

Green Edition - does this mean it does not need direct connection to PSU?

Are there any benefits? It seems so much cheaper than the non-green editions.

I am in the market for a graphics card - but having just shelled out £80 for a PSU I am a bit dubious about a graphics card that doesn't require connecting to it?

400W with one 6-pin power connector according to xfx website

According to xfx's website this model requires a 6 pin pcie connector. I have a zotac gts250 that hasa n 8 pin pcie connector - think this means that the xfx one is based on a later revision of the card/gpu that requires less power to run.
6pin are designed to supply 75w and 8 pin 150w iirc (plus the 75w from the pcie slot)

Cracking price!

It's gonna get hot in here!
#10
This is so bought. I just hope they Scan don't cancel the order as this is a blatant misprice.
#11
Not bad for an "Ultimate weapon of mass destruction".
#12
hot - although this is what GTS250 should be priced
the usual RRP does not make sense when you can get a GTX260 for just few quids more
#13
A word of warning guys, just read the specs page and this card has been down-clocked compared to a standard GTS250.

Core: 675MHz vs 738MHz
Mem: 2000MHz vs 2200MHz
Shader: Don't know, hopefully no change.

This is still a great deal though.
#14
If i had an sli instead of crossfire i would have sold my 4870 and stuck two of these in.
#15
Wondering if anyone can advise if this would be compatible with the brand new vostro i7 that's arriving tomorrow? Just need to know if the CPU would facilitate it and secondly would it cause a conflict with the 4350 that's supplied with it. Can I use them both or isn't that an option?

Not sure if the 4350 is integrated.

No the Dell doesn't have a pci-e power line. The best you can do is HD4670 or GT240 DDR5.

4350 included is a dedicated card (normally Asus)

Literally a 9800GTX+, although may be slightly better as it has newer BIOS.
Not sure what's different about this "core edition" though, could be reduced speed.
#21
amazing price due to less video memory than regular 250 GTS. these cards have 512Mb vs 1024Mb.

Very nice price.

Thanks for the info. For gaming at 1920 x 1080, am I going to be better of with this than my current 1GB 9600GT? I suspect the memory is more important given the size of screen.
#26
So conflicting info about the Vostro.

What do I do with the 4350?

You'll definitely be better off with the GTS250. Memory size isn't that important. The number of shaders and the clockspeeds are far greater in the GTS250.

Take it out and put it in the cupboard. :) You'll have no use for it if you buy this card.

If you've ordered a Vostro 430 with a Core i7, this DOES have a 6 pin PCI-e power connector. The PSU is rated for 350w, but in Dell speak this is average power output and in practice Dell PSU's usually operate at a much higher wattage. Dell Tech support have been advising, and Dell do offer a GTX 260 as an option on these machines.

The Vostro 430 can easily handle a GTS 250.

You would be better off with this now that 1920x1080 is a mid-range resolution on new monitors. The difference probably isn't enough to justify the upgrade though.

Thanks for clearing things up. How exactly can it be put in the cupboard if its integrated?
#32
What would you say would be the better option, either 2 of these in SLI, or a single 9800GX2 ? getting a pre owned 9800GX2 would make it about the same price as 2 of these on this deal. So I'm really not sure what to go for

There will be an option in the bios to turn off the on board integrated graphics.
#34
I guess leaving it on will cause conflicts?
#35
The Vostro motherboard does not have integrated graphics. It's based on a P55 chipset, which has not onboard graphics ability. Only H55 chipsets have onboard and that's from the new Core CPU's with builtin graphics cores.

The Vostro motherboard has 4 Sata, lots of USB ports, 1 serial port, PS2 keyboard port, but no eSata or digital audio. Otherwise it's identical to the Studio XPS 8000 (not the new new Studio XPS 8100, which is based on the H55 chipset and has HDMI, etc....)

Thanks! Don't suppose you can recommend a good SLI motherboard? I think the processor I'll be using will be an AMD Phenom ii X2 550

hmmm 140watts TDP vs 90? on my 8800GS, and not even twice as fast?
despite 2 "generations" later, still not enough improvement, sticking for now.

charts for anyone comparing with older nvidia cards (read, then scroll up).

the graphics card is not integrated. simply take out the 4350 and put in the new one . you can find plenty of guides on you tube etc.
you might have a problem with getting rid of ati drivers as you're going from ati to nvidia. i've not done it myself but heard it can cause problems. it may require a reinstall of the OS and all drivers.
