$99 for a new gtx 250? ( two questions in one)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
A staples near me has a 1GB gtx 250 on for $99 as a open box deal. Is that a good deal? Also this is for my brother and he got my old no-name power supply that is a 450w with 17A on the 12V, would he be able to run it without a power supply upgrade?

The power supply is fine, however you can get a GTS450 or GTX460 768mb for about $100 online, both of which are better than a gts250.

Also there is no such things as a GTX 250...only GTS 250. And there are better card for the money, like for example a GTX 460 or 5770.

Yeah, you can do much better than $100 for a GTS 250. I got a 9800GTX+ for $75 at Best buy.

9800gtx+ is the same as a GTS 250 btw, I used to run one of each in SLI

BTW go purchase the Galaxy GTX 465 for $135 off of Newegg

But as others have mentioned there are far better gpu's available at the 100 dollar price point than the gts 250.

Don't think that'll run on a 450w PSU. >.>
