Swoosh... the purpose of this went over my head...
What is this supposed to accomplish? (Not a rhetorical question)

more stable voltages by using higher quality chokes

Are chokes incredibly cheap to purchase or something? It seems weird to go into voltage-related modding on a mid-end card...
Thank you for the mini-class

Sorry for kind of reverse-railing your thread, anyone else reading this, please do not let me distract from the OP's question...

Um ... I don't think that chokes play any role in voltage stability. They just clean electro-magnetic interference off the line I believe.

Thus I definitely wouldn't bother unless I had some reason to believe interference was a problem on my card.

and btw no manufacturer uses iron chokes on their card..
iron just kills the purpose of having chokes for that application...

and yeah for beautification if you ask me... I would use some kind of plastic cap or something to hide the choke..instead of replacing it..

A GTS 250 should work just fine as a PhysX card for a GTX 260 main card.

If you were thinking of running them in SLI, then no it will not work. At all. Ever.

I think he means that if replacing the chokes works on his GTS 250, then he will do the same mod to his GTX 260.
