hello werewolf, it seems you are looking for an entry level graphics card. I've had personal experience with a Gigabyte GTS250. This card is an EXTREMELY good entry level gamer card. It could runs games like; all of the call of duties (including the new black ops), mass effect 2, just cause 2, Mafia II, ect ect. I could run all these games on medium-high with 2-4x aa with acceptable frame rates (30-40) at 1920x1080. If I were you i'de buy this entry card NOW to prevent kicking yourself in the pants later when you're getting avg 10 fps.
PS: Best answer me cos im impatient and was some credit on this site !
I'd hold your horses before giving out the best answer! The GTS 250 is a great card, but it must be said that it requires external power and if the OP is asking about entry level cards then it's quite likely he might not have the PSU to support it. It's always better to err on the side of caution.
From the list above, I hate to say that there isn't a huge difference in performance between any of them. You'll get roughly the same performance with all of them. Are they the only cards you are considering, or can we suggest others? What's your price range and country?
