I had the 9800gt amped from zotac and it died, I did the RMA and they want to send me a gts 250, is that better than my 9800gt?

it shows it comes with a 8 pin adapter that splits into 2 connectors but I only have one 6 pin pci-e, will it matter?

It comes with one eight pin PCI-E which gets its power from dual four pin molex power connections which is used to power your fans and occasionally hard drives. You won't need to use that six pin PCI-E connection.

It looks like the one from Zotac requires four molex connectors rather than two to me as well.

It's not exactly the same card it's a slight trade up, the GTS250 is a 9800GTX/+ not a GT.

And the GTS 250 also (pretty sure) has stepping revisions and a shorter PCB length most of the time which means it uses less power than the 9800 GTX/+, which used dual six pin PCI-E while most GTS 250s only need one PCI-E six pin, some use an eight pin (like the Zotac) and a few use dual six pin (I think).
