i wanted to buy a GTS 250 512mb but i m still using a 17" montior wid max res. 1280 x 1024.Wat u guyz think about this card and should i buy 1 or shld i think of smthng else help me out here...(wanna play all the latest games)
At 1280x1024 (or 1440x900 if you like widescreen) a 9600GT is a very capable card, but a GTS 250 won't be a huge overkill either, especially in the years to come.
Though I advise waiting for the new 5xxx series from ATI, a 5670 or 5750 would be great for you, consume less power, cost the same and have DirectX11 support.
Why not get a higher resolution monitor? Seems like a gts 250 would be overkill on such a small monitor/low res. I play on a 23" HP at 1920 x 1080 and anything less seems sub-par. Of course all the other res's look worse cause they aren't the native res.
