So this is my question,
Should i go for the Gainward Ati HD4830 512MB GDDR3 or the Gainward gts 250 (Deep Green)1GB DDR3(Deep Green saves 15% power from a standart gts 250 and is a bit slower(memory bandwidth is 57.6GB/s same as the HD4830).Im asking this becuase everyone tells that the gts 250 overheat.So which one should it be?Oh and my PSU is CM 550W.

I think This answers your question.

If not, get the GTS 250.

Yes same PSU and yes the cards are new.And im on a tight budget.The 550ti in my country is 165 dollars and that gts 250 is only 75 .

The GTS 250 is about 15-20% faster than the HD4830 on average.

4830=9800GT
GTS250=9800GTX
Although dumbed down to save power the 250 is a better card.
You could always oc to regular 250 speeds.
