So basically I have a 8800GTX OCED Rght now with 1.2GB memory on the card. It is a BFG card. Iam getting a 250GTs from my friend since he got a 295 GTX. So should I keep the 8800GTX or the GTS 250. The 250 is this card:
If you have to pay for the card then don't buy it. The upgrade isn't worth it.
Keep your current card.
If you wanna buy a new card for upto 175$ then consider HD 5770.
There is no suitable nVidia card in the market to suggest. If you want to by a nVidia card then wait for a while
The 8800GTX is slightly less powerful than a GTX 250 due to all the overclocks the renaming has brought.
However since your 8800GTX is overclocked the difference will be minimal.
If the card is free then yes since there should be a small boost (2-7%) and less power-consumption/heat.
Yeah, they'll probably be about the same really but the GTS will run cooler and use less power.
If you want something better I would really consider ATI cards instead as any Nvidia card higher than the GTS 250 is really a poor value comparatively right now.
