GTS 250 vs GTX 260

Recommended Posts

Hey guys Im about to build a small gaming rig for my friend as a bday present and im wondering if a GTX 260 core 216 outperforms a GTS 250. I want a EVGA card because of the awesome customer support and they're both about the same in memory, 896 vs 1gb other then that I dont see much differences. As far as price goes the GTS 250 is 139.99 and the GTX 260 is 184.99 both on Newegg.com So basically what im wondering is will the performance difference be big enough to put up the extra 45.00 for the GTX 260...... I know they're strong cards but I dont know how the stack up next to a GTS 250..... I appreciate the help guys.

the 260 is above and beyond the 9800gtx+, you should be deciding between the 260 and a 4850

a GTS 250 is basicaly just a 9800gtx+ and I want a nvidia card because of physx and a EVGA card..... how much does a GTX275 outperform a GTX260 core 216?

It's a good improvement in the high resolutions, I just wouldn't recommend the 9800gtx+ to anyone. what resolution will your friend be playin at.

I'd get a 280 over a 275 since they can be had for about the same price on ebay.

alright then go for the 260 if you need an nVidia

but if you look closely, it's a 120hz screen so he's benefit with the most frames possible. I say go 280

280 outperforms the 275, not by a hole bunch but if you can afford it I would say do it. Generally speaking with nvidia the bigger the number the more performance and more cash you will have to dish out for it. I can't suggest anything more powerful than a 280 because of your resolutions.

The refresh rate of the screen doesn't change much...it's not like he's doing stereo vision or anything.
