Anything other than the GTS 250 at the prices you're mentioning is just wrong. The GTS 250 is 50% faster than the 9800GT, and even the 9800GT is faster then the GT440. The GT 430 is just crap for the money.

Get the GTS 250.

EDIT: the GTS 250 is 20% faster than the 9800GT. Still, it's definitely the best card for the money.

I put these 440 and 430's to feed the trolls. Looks like it works.

Well I'll give you the coordinates and you should atomize the whole shop. Yes there will be more causalities as its located in a plaza with 100's more shops.

Adding 15 more $ (To GTS 250 price) will get me:

GTS 250 256 Bits 1024MB DDR3 675MHZ Inno3D.

GTS 450 128 Bits 1024MB DDR5 783MHZ Inno3D.

But as you just saw, Inno3d . I hate inno. and yeah its outa budget for me.

Then after those this goes way out of budget:

GTS 450 128 Bits 1024MB GDDR5 882MHZ EVGA 161$.

The GTS 450 for $15 more might be worth it. It's 10% faster than the GTS 250 stock and has a lot more over-clocking headroom.

The GTS 250 is a 9800GTX+. The 450 will be a bit faster but not worth the price. I would go with the 250 and overclock it a bit.

Wow those are some overpriced gpus. For 100 bucks you can get a 5830 or a 460 and it will rape all those gpus you posted. but if I had to choose between those 4 I would pick the gts 250, its the best performer and will destroy the gt430 and gt440. The gt9800 is a close second.
