It is the rebadged version you mean.

GTS 250, it is the rebadged version of 9800GTX+

advantages though: it is about 1 inch shorter, and a bit cheaper!

Really? Because im running a model from EVGA, with a nice big cooler on it, room temp is 26C, and card gets to 85ish under 100% load.

I thought only fermi could beat that?

I would assume they run at similar temps but you may be right

that temperature is normal for GTS250 under full load. and the 250 use less power than 9800GTX+ for the same performance. but there are some manufacturer make 9800GTX+ with only one 6 pin as opposed to the original one that using 2.

@OP

if you have to choose between the two i'd say that GTS250 is clearly a better choice

that must explain why my other GTS250 has two six pin, and is an inch longer than EVGA gts 250. I found that one six pin is not working, useless, and other does work.

they must have used the PCB from an old 9800GTX+ when making my sparkle GTS 250 512 MB. (otherwise use a EVGA model, proper GTS250)


and yes, GTS 250 is clearly best option!

good luck, and enjoy your card.

my MSI GTS 250 is OC and wont break 70c, usually hangs out at 65c at load

room temp here is 26 degrees C, and im using furmark for that. in gaming indeed it never crosses 70C

The GTS is better but if you supply more info, we might be able to help you further in maybe getting an even better price.
