NVIDIA's 200 series of graphics cards combines cutting edge technology and advanced capabilities for best-in-class performance. The GTS250 is a balanced solution for all your graphic needs. It’s Microsoft Vista ready and equipped with a PCI-Express 2.0 interface. The GTS250 supports 3-way SLI to seriously crank your performance options by using up to three graphics cards for insane flow rates.

The card's core clock runs at 760MHz, relieving your CPU of pixel crunching duty. Data surges through the GTS250's 128 stream processors fed by 1GB of 256-bit 2300MHz GDDR3 memory. Twin dual-linked DVI and 400 MHz RAMDAC lets you display 2560 x 1600 resolution video and graphics on even the largest monitors. Support for DirectX 10, OpenGL 3.0, NVIDIA's PureVideoHD, CUDA and PhysX-ready are built in to render even the most intense environmental effects or HD DVD video with brilliant clarity.

The GTS250 delivers fluid frame rates and HD video with solid performance. If your motherboard can take it, the GTS250 can dish it out.

Worked Great! For a while... 9/7/2013 12:47:50 AM

Pros: Great price
Great performance
Quiet

Cons: One of the fans quit working right after the 3 year warranty mark and now the card is failing.

Overall Review: My biggest complaint is that one of the twin fans went out about a month after I was out of warranty. Now the card runs hot and is starting to fail. Looks like I will be buying a new card soon. Will probably get one similar to this one as it was a good card until the fan went out.

Cons: None

The right choice 4/9/2013 1:21:18 PM

Pros: I got one of these cards back in August 2010 after my old one burned up (Crysis was a demanding game). I did a lot of research to find a card that would perform well and last me awhile, yet not burn a hole in my wallet. Whilst it couldn't max out Crysis at a playable FPS (honestly, what card back then could with that game) it still performed like a champ. But this is why I wrote this review:

Here I sit, over two years later, playing Skyrim on a tweaked 'Very High' setting in 1080p and 4x AA with at least 20 mods running and textures 4x crisper than vanilla (texture resolutions @ 2048x2048)...and I'm *still* getting 30+ FPS? I'd have never believed this card could still compete in 2013 if someone told me back when I chose it. Far Cry 3? On 'High' @ 1080p, 25+ FPS. Deus Ex Revolution; Maxed out @ 1080p, always buttery smooth. Dishonored, Maxed out. You get the idea.

Most games that auto-detect graphics determine that this thing can handle 'Very High' or Maxed from the start.

I'm a digital artist too; Photoshop CS5 and Painter 11 perform like a dream on this card.

I'm actually considering finding another one of these to SLI if I can, though it's age makes that somewhat difficult.

Cons: It's a shame that the card is stuck in DirectX 10, because DX11 would've extended the longevity of this card even more. Also, the card can run very hot if not ventilated properly (mine wasn't at first) but the dual fans help a lot. Overall, these are nit-picky gripes and do not detract from the value this card brings.

Overall Review: I just wish cards like this, great performance at a great value that will last for years, were easier to find nowadays.

2560x1600 No Questions 9/5/2012 7:57:42 PM

Pros: Been using this close to 3 years now. Finally got around to getting my dream monitor - the Dell 3011 30-inch. What a dream THIS is to work on! Well, I simply plugged in the monitor using a single DVI cable and Windows instantly recognized the max resolution of 2560x1600 and it made the switch. I didn't even have to adjust the resolution myself. This card runs it with no issues. Granted I'm not doing games at this rez, photo editing, but the card handles it spot-on!

Cons: None.

Comments: if your a MSI diehard, its not bad. probably better now since the price has gone down over the year time. However, be ready to talk with MSI's customer support.

Gets the job done 2/3/2011 3:58:35 PM

Pros: Ive been able to run any game at max with at least 30fps. Installation was easy and the programs it came with are awesome.

Cons: The fans get LOUD when the card warms up. Loud loud loud. Thats only when playing games though otherwise you dont hear it.

Overall Review: I would like to purchase a PCI slot cooler. Because below my gcard there is no ventilation.

Great card for the price 2/1/2011 6:01:44 AM

Pros: Its a great card for the price. Playing the RIFT beta on ultra graphics with 4xAA at 20 FPS. It will get the job done and do it cheap.

Cons: Problems with it locking up and crashing my computer. Only does it when i restart or reboot. I just disable and reenable the driver for the card and start up the afterburner software it came with and it runs just fine in all applications.

Overall Review: Just bought a GTX 460 going to use the card i just bought and this one in SLI and see what i can crank out.
