Hi guys, im having hard time choosing which one to get from these 3. I already bought the GT 240 but when I did a search, it seems like GT 240 is a crap and looks like my old 7950 OC is still faster. All of them have the same price. If I have answers tonight, he'll ill be driving like crazy to my local store.

The GTS250 is the best out of those three cards. However, if you can find a similarly priced ATI HD4850 or ATI HD4870, grab either of those.

The GT 240 is overpriced and underpowered.

The GTS 250 competes with the HD 4850/4770 in performance and all are equally as good of a deal in the $100-120 price range; anything more than that and it's better to go for an NVidia GTX 260 216sp or ATI HD 4870/4890. If you are interested in DirectX 11 try checking out the new five series from ATI as well.

A GTS 250 is probably your best bet:

Don't pay over $120 for a GTS 250.
