The GTS 250 is basically comparable to the 8800GTS 512MB. Which was a little faster than the 8800GT that you have. However, we're not talking earth shattering by any means. Depending on what video card your buddy has, it might be a better upgrade for him. m 0 l Related resources Graphics card to replace Ge Force 8800GT 512mb / budget - Forum Asus 8800GT 512MB or Asus 9600GT 1024MB!
