Is this card good? Will it work with my mobo?

I am looking to buy: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4843000&sku=G458-0252

My mobo is an ASUS P5N32-E SLI

Will the card work with it, I noticed the GDDR3 and I'm not sure if it supports it.

If it doesn't (or even if it does) what kind of card should I be looking to buy to upgrade from an 8800GT 512mb. Around $160 CDN and under that will work with my mobo.

  1. Yes it will. Upgrade would be depending on the rest of your system CPU and PSU.
  2. I would be able to just fit that card in the same spot my 8800gt is?
  3. It should do unless another expansion card is in the slot right underneath it.
  4. One last question. Thanks for the help so far.

    With this mobo again P5N32-E SLI: http://asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=vBZLIBtPzYB2bLcb

    And the video card Galaxy GeForce GTS 250 Video Card - 512MB GDDR3, PCI Express 2.0, Dual Link DVI, HDMI, HDTV, SLI Ready: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4843000&sku=G458-0252

    Say I buy two of those cards. Will my mobo be able to run them both in SLI?
  5. Yes it will! It would though probably be cheaper to buy one card for the same performance GTX275 and don't have to mess with the dual card setup.
  6. Thanks for the help.

    I just cant seem to find it available anywhere :(

    Hey GT123,

    First--A GTS 250 is not a huge upgrade from a 8800GT. To see a noticeable performance increase you might want to get a better card, or even hold off a little longer to get more power at this price.
    Look at this chart:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-radeon,2326-16.html

    Second: Tom's Best cards for the money article:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-310-5970,2491.html

    The 9800GT you see on this list is simply an update to the 8800GT you have-- the GTS 250 is probably only about 30% more powerful than it. If I were you I would go for the $150 price range at least to see a noticeable difference. A 5770 would be a powerful upgrade and would offer DirectX 11.

    Third:
    As you noticed in the article--SLI is usually not worth it unless you are running a really high end system and cant use a single card. Two cards are not twice as powerful as one card.
