It looks different from the 9800 GTX+ reference board but that is just because the PCB + components are no longer manufactured by Flextronics.

Wow....Hey SKY, Felxtronics builds a small insturment for my company here. Looks like they have dipped into everything lol!

Flextronics is HUGE. They build everything from the Xbox 360, to PCBs, to the Zune, to calculator components...the list goes on and on.

Anyways, Nvidia GPUs have been manufactured by a number of companies over the past few years; Flextronics, PC Partner and Foxconn have all had their hand in it.

I hate to say this but the image I linked to shows an EVGA card which I have installed in my brother's computer. It is ~1" shorter than the reference 9800 GTX+. If you want to compare for yourself, take that image above and compare it to an image of the reference 9800 GTX+ and make sure to note the PCB length between the edge of the end of the PCI-E connector and the end of the PCB.

I just don't think yo uare taking a good look at the pictures.

The fact of the matter is that the GTS 250 PCB has been in production for a number of months now. Yes, even with the single 6-pin PCI-E connector which will be evident on the GTS 250.

Basically, there has been no change from current 9800 GTX+ offerings from EVGA andBFG. Those are the "new" format 9800 GTX+ cards which have been in production for about 3 months now which feature a shorter PCB and and revised power distribution.

OK, I will stop stamping my feet now. I was having a hard time understanding where you were coming from. Having the 2 pictures makes your point clear. Thanks for the clarification and for not taking offense to my questiing of your info.

No problem. The internet is a tough place to convey emotions and GPUs in general are getting to be a more and more confusing field.
