Summary: Excellent video card, I have 2, each in their own computer and they both perform flawlessly. Very powerful, make sure you have a good power supply, 500 watts from a quality brand because the nature of any once-TOTL (Top of The Line) video card is they consume about 250 watts all by themselves. Considering you can find these at a GREAT price on Ebay ITS A BARGAIN! They play World of Tanks, Star Wars The Old Republic, Starcraft II, and much much more.
cheap for great performance but obsolete for DX 11

Summary: Excellent. Product worked right out of the. Box, paired it with another gts 250 to try my hand at sli, improved my frames per second on high setting on bf bad company 2 from 34 to 60, which is excellent!
Summary: This graphics card is only slightly slower than an ATI 5770. The fan is actually quieter. Even though the card is longer, it fits better with the fan at the back of the card. With my old ATI 5770, it not only took up two slots, but the fan intake was mostly blocked by a PCI card two slots over. Now things run much cooler. I also like the Nvidia control panel much better than the ATI Catalyst software.
Summary: I've owned this card for over a year and just bought a 2nd to SLI. Nothing bad I can say about it. I've run it hard without overclocking it and finally come to the point where I have to upgrade a bit to run all my graphics at max. Been wanting to run dual vids anyway, and if that wont let me max my graphics, my daughters system get a great upgrade. NVIDIA rocks.
Summary: A few months ago I had my evga 8800 Ultra card go out on me a month over 3 solid years of use - and not realizing I had to register the card within 30 days of when I got it - needed a replacement that wasn't too expensive. Enter the GTS 250, not only was it just as capable of running things like Crysis and GTA IV, it ran them smoother and somewhat increased detail.
Summary: Some seller are incorrect about saying Evga GeForce GTS 250 512MB 512-P3-1151-TR not SLI. WHY would EVGA put it on there boxes saying that IT is Nvidia 2-way and 3 way SLI READY? The EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 512MB 512-P3-1151-TR is 2-way and 3 way SLI which it is designed to fit the 2-way and 3-way SLI.
Summary: Awesome and beastly card and with a decent price, the only issue I have its with SF4 for PC that I need to activate Vsync or the game flickers, if anyone knows a workaround please let me know.
