Up until our last few tests there wasn't anything too exciting about the card. Sure, the card performed like we thought it would in the numbers game, but upon looking at the temperature of the card along with the power usage, it was simply amazing to see just how well the card performed compared to the others here.
It's good to see that GIGABYTE is using the same technology that's been implemented into their award winning motherboards. While at first I thought this was going to be more gimmicky than anything else, once we really got down to the testing side of things we can see that there's some real advantages to the UDV technology that GIGABYTE has implemented.
At 154.99 U.S. Dollars from Newegg, the GIGABYTE version of the GTS 250 is one of the more expensive ones available. For around $20 less you could get something that's clocked higher and is going to perform faster overall, but honestly what we see here from GIGABYTE makes this an excellent buy.
While the package might be a bit on the light side, with good connectivity, excellent cooling and just an excellent set of features packed onto this version of the GTS 250, we highly recommend it to anyone looking at a graphics card under $150 who is able to play most games at resolutions of up to 1920 x 1200.
