Geforce GT230 1.5GB vs Geforce GTS250 1GB Tags: Graphics Cards Packard Bell Desktops Geforce Quad Core Graphics Last response: April 15, 2010 2:56 PM in Graphics & Displays Share amhowletT April 15, 2010 1:50:25 PM Hello, 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?

The gts 250(9800gtx+) is at least 3 tiers above it. It will run hotter and use more power. Not a lot more, just more. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-graphics-card,... renz496 a c 141 U Graphics card April 15, 2010 2:34:21 PM 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 Related resources Hd4650 or gt230 ? - Forum Geforce GTS 250 1GB vs Radeon HD 5670 1 GB - Forum How is XFX NVIDIA 9600 1.5GB with this specs - Forum Compare nvidia geforce gt 525m 1gb with ati radeon 4650 - Forum GTS250 Vs .
