I have a Packard Bell Ixtreme Desktop. Win7 64bit, 4GB RAM, quad Core 2.5Ghz and Geforce GT230 1.5GB.
I use it primarily for Flight Simulator FSX and it performs pretty well.

Is it worth replacing it with a Geforce GTS250 1Gb or is this card only marginally beter then the GT230?

if your power supply is not an issue then you can go for GTS250. performance based, GTS250 will win against GT230 any day. your call :)

Thanks guys for the more question.
Is there an easy way for me to check if my PSU will allow for a GTS 250?

first off you should be able to check your PSU spec yourself by looking the spec sticker. GTS250 will need 450w PSU with 12v rated at 24A
