Whats the rest of your system?
The GTS 250 is definitely overpriced.
Get the HD4890 is you have a beefy PSU, doesn't care about heat has don't need DX11.
If not, HD5770, though Im not too sure about VTX.

My PSU is rated at 550, is that enough?
Jul 28, 2010, 10:51 PM
What brand/model is it? It should run the HD5770 fine, but the 4890 could have a problem its its not a quality one.

Ill have to open up and have a look, but the sytem is a dell precision 470 which I know meens nothing so ill have a look inside.

Make sure it fits though, those dell have a tendency to be BTX which sucks for dual-slot cards.
Jul 28, 2010, 11:11 PM
Oh my god im out of touch do you mean sli? by saying dual slot as I only have one PCI-E slot?
Jul 28, 2010, 11:16 PM
I'm saying all three cards you listed take up
, but some Dell systems Ive seen with BTX boards have trouble fitting even
Jul 28, 2010, 11:22 PM
well im not sure but i have 4 slots to the left of the pci-e and only one is taken with my wireless card, does that help?
Jul 28, 2010, 11:25 PM
