GTX 260 C216. Straight up better performance. C'mon, GTS isn't as good as GTX. And 250 isn't as high as 260...+216! Even in non-computer-geek speak, the 260 is better. :p

The GTS250 is just a repackaged version of a previous generation card. Very not worth it. GTX260 gogo.

well at least you only need a single 6pin for the gts250 and its only 9inch.

400W psu with single 6pin, nvidia fanboi, the gts250 is a must.

and gtx 260 216 all the way if you can fit/power it.
