Great mid-range GPU!

Paul L., Newegg
30 January 2016
  • Summary: EVGA is fantastic!!!
  • Pros: I bought this in April of 2009 and it's been a fantastic card. I'm still using it and it handles just about everything I throw at it fairly well. I use my PC primarily for gaming and watching videos on YouTube. Videos are nothing for this GPU. Seeing as how this card is about to be 7 years old, i...
  • Cons: I've really had no problems with this card. The only con I can give it (and it's not really a con at all) is that it's old. Seeing as how it's January 2016 (time of writing), this beast has long outlived it's life.

31 March 2014
  • Summary: Card was great! I know its no longer for sale but it lasted 5 years for me. It had messed up once and I stripped it, used contact cleaner on board and everything, reapplied thermal paste and it lasted another 2 years, I recently bought a new card but have this thing setting as a backup, I know its...
  • Pros: card lasted almost 5 years!
  • Cons: After year 2 some crashes. Lol

Get a radeon

Jason H., Newegg
6 March 2010
  • Summary: After about a month of running 2 gts250's in sli, I switched to a Radeon XFX 5850. I can now run pretty much anything full out, except for Crysis. If you're using this for video editing or an extra monitor, fine, but if you're buying this for a gaming rig, seriously consider forking out an extra...
  • Pros: The evga 250 will beat out any zotac, bfg or xfx easily. I ran this in sli with a zotac, and the evga was almost always 10C cooler. It's silent and small (relatively).
  • Cons: It's not a radeon. Seriously, you could buy a 5750 or a 4870 for the same price and get +10 frame per second easy. The Radeon 4870 1 gig gets about 40 fps on far cry 2 1680x1050 while the gts 250 512mb gets only 30fps.

Great upgrade!

Anonymous, Newegg
28 February 2010
  • Summary: The tech support online is great, and it was very easy to install as most graphics cards.
  • Pros: I bought this card to replace my old saphire 4850 which was overheating at my new 1920x1080 res for my new monitor, since then I've considered getting another one. This is a great card, I have never had any problems with it. The software that came with it also had some built-in overclocking softw...
  • Cons: None so far.

Good Card

Tim T., Newegg
15 February 2010
  • Summary: Card runs very cool (idle at 32 C). Great buy for simple gaming. I'd recommend this card any day to anyone who is on a budget and can't afford the higher end video cards.
  • Pros: Bought this card to replace my old 8800 GTX which was in the beginning stages of failure (artifacts and crashing) while gaming. Right off the bat, this card showed it has the power to play games (below Active X 11) turned to max settings without any problems and running SLI. Basically, it's a not...
  • Cons: I like to monitor the fan speed using R!va Tuner however this card does not support this feature through PCI. You have to find a 2 wire adapter and plug it into the card and than your MB to get fan RPM's. No real problem just a simple "con".

Pretty great card

Kyle G., Newegg
4 February 2010
  • Summary: This is a replacement for my 9800 GX2 that overheated itself into oblivion, so it is a little bit of a downgrade, but it's a great mid-level card. I gave it 4/5 because it can run hot and it's not as fast as my old card.
  • Pros: Runs great! I idle around 37 degrees Celsius and hit 64 when I'm maxing out Modern Warfare 2 (max settings and 1600x1200 resolution) at around 50 FPS consistently.
  • Cons: None yet, I'm quite fond of EVGA and NVidia products.
