Ignore XFX, even if it IS a reference card. Go with another decent brand name for it. Asus, MSI, Sapphire, Gigabyte (I personally hate them, but whatever), Visiontek, HIS...they are ALL options I would consider over XFX.

Well my current card is an XFX btw a GTS 250.

I also had a XFX 8800GTS 640MB XXX. Never had a problem with either of them.

I guess XFX is no longer considered among the best?

They sure as hell were with nvidia.

That's correct. They were EXCELLENT while they were with Nvidia. As soon as they had the option to release non reference cards with the HD4xxx series, they blew it (first generation ATI). And they've been having bad non-reference cards and poor customer support since then.

I wish they'd just go back to the way they were with Nvidia. Would make it a lot easier to like them.

I confirmed that it is actually the non-reference card. Oh well GTX 560 Ti here I come!

Will this be a good card to buy?

It's a bit more expensive obviously but if I am able to stretch my budget I think 2GB ram might help in the future. I wont be buying another card before all the next gen consoles have arrived.
