  1. Get the 4850 1GB or GTS 250 1GB, which ever is cheaper...
    And any of the above manufacturers would do...see to that they give atleast 3yrs warranty...
  2. Yup, both the 4850 and GTS 250/9800GTX+ perform nearly the same.
    Get which ever card you can locate the cheapest, any of those manufacturers are fine.
    Do not worry to much about getting a full 1Gb of RAM.
    At your resolution you will have little real world use for the extra 512Mb.
  3. Thanks for the replies guys!

    Ill go for a 250 GTS at 512 mb..

    Now one thing XFX and other manufacturers have certain overclocked editions are they worth the extra money or should i stick to stock speed of GPU at 738 mhz..

    Any more suggestions from anyone would be appreciated.
  4. I have an XFX GTS 250 with the stock speed. It can overclock to 800. Get the XFX for the lifetime warranty.
  5. Unless you can get the overclocked version for just a few $ more, get the standard version.
    You can nearly always match/exceed the factory overclocks yourself with little/no effort.
  6. thanks outlaw and hundredisland..

    Ill stick to XFX 250gts Core edition..
