Which is better?

Which Nvidia Graphics card is better for my computer? Here is my computer's configuration:

Intel i5-650
4 GB DDR3 RAM

Which card should I buy?

1)GTS450 (1GB)
2)GTS250 (1GB)
3)GTX260 (896MB)

Which one do you guys think will be the better one? I mostly play games like GTA IV, Empire: Total War, Devil May Cry 4, Assassin's Creed.

More about which better
  1. The 450 and 260 should perform about the same in DX9 and 10, the 250 is the weakest out of the three.
  2. I would suggest the GTS 450 for having hte most up to date feature. As mousemonkey stated the GTS 250 is the worst and the GTX 260 and GTS 450 are on par for performance.

    That's not true. The 450 is behind the 5770 witch is just a little slower than the gtx260, but i suggest buying the gts450 because of DX11. Might want to find a 5770 for just a little over that price because the difference in performance will be worth it. If you want just nvidia get the gts450.
  4. Get the GTS450. It will perform a little better than the 260 and has more up to date features, like DirectX 11:

  5. I could swear the GTX260 is faster than the GTS450. However, regardless.. the GTX260 I can't find anywhere for a reasonable price, and becase it has newer hardware and features I would go with the GTS450.
  6. Thanks a lot guys, but I'm still confused. I know that the GTX 260 is better than GTS 450 but what I actually wanna know is which one will be better for playing games like GTA IV, Empire: Total War, Assassin's Creed, Devil May Cry 4, etc.
  7. GTS 450 is better for playing the games you mentioned.

    You should check out my link. The GTS450 is faster than the 260 in games, and features DirectX 11 support.

  9. Thank you all for your opinion. I think I'll go for GTS 450 (1GB). GTX 260 is quite costly and doesn't support DX11. Thanks a lot guys.
