Wouldn't a GTX 260 be better for the price? A bit less memory...896mb...but EVGA GTX 260 for $184.99 after MIR on Newegg. Would the extra memory really be worth it?

Good find though, no GTX 250s on Newegg yet. +Rep.

a gtx 260 is a better deal for sure! its just this is the first 250 ive seen for sale so i wanted to post it
GTX285>280>260 216>260>250>240 (pretty obvious)
regardless of amount of Vram.
(i picked up my 260 216 (evga) with a coupon code for $190 after mir
)

Now how do we know that's not just somebody that took a 9800GTX 1GB and is calling it a GTS 250? After all, that's all it is anyway.

EVGA had them posted yesterday, gone now.
Their pricing looks pretty good IMO, about $20 cheaper than the comparable GTX+ version.
If their pricing holds up, I'll get one to pair with my GX2.

Yeah so if they really cost less than the gtx+ then people need to stop hating on the GTS 250 (or 240).

a gts 250 is 1.5" shorter than a 9800gtx and has only 1 pci-e connector
So you will know its not a 9800gtx

Not entirely true

There is a shorter GTX+ version, there are also non reference boards running 1 pci-e connector.

1) Who would rather have 1 DVI, 1 VGA, and 1 HDMI than 2x DVI with HDMI capabilities??? That only leaves the option to run a digital signal to ONE monitor per card unless your display has HDMI or you are willing to pay for an adapter. Total downgrade.

2) I'm sure anyone would also much rather buy a product from an accredited retailer than some guy on ebay any day. Especially if it is $4 cheaper. It's funny how many people are buying into nvidia's bs marketing. Same chip = same card as far as I'm concerned.
