Hey everybody, I am new around here, but have been using the site for most of my computer questions.
I have an XFX GeForce GTS 250 1GB video Card. I was wondering what the potential overclocking ability of this card would be on air cooling. will be getting a GPU cooler soon enough. using Antec 900 case as stock cooling for now though. runs at 38 degrees idle at the moment.
Well it is a beefed up 9800GT/GTX, and it is 1GB for that extra bit of power needed at higher resolutions. The GTS 250 is a superb GPU for the price, if you want more GPU power get yourself a board that can do SLI and buy a second 250. In a few months current Nvidia cards will come down in price once the 300 series launches.
I have a GTS 250 (1Gb) in a pre-built DELL XPS 400 (horrible airflow) and it still manages to keep cool, of course in the summer I will be upgrading the stock case just to make sure the card gets plenty of airflow.
