The Dark Knight version of the GTS 250 puts a nice little twist on a card that we already love. Not only do you get all those extra software programs that ASUS add to the bundle, but you get a cooler that does a good job of keeping the temperature on the card down without the cost of more noise, too. In a perfect world this is exactly what you want, better performance in cooling and noise.
If that's not enough for you, ASUS has also got a TOP version which has a ramped up core and memory clock to give us even more performance while also using the same cooler that does such a great job.
The Dark Knight series is quickly becoming a nice series from ASUS and we're looking forward to seeing more and more products come into it as time goes on. As we just mentioned before, the fact that you can purchase the TOP variant of the card brings another part of our favorite series into this one.
As usual, you're paying a bit more for the ASUS card; it's currently listed at Newegg for 159.99 U.S. Dollars. For some people it's not going to be worth it, but if you're looking for something that has a better bundle and better cooling than the stock model, you can't really go wrong. If this is not enough, though, as we mentioned you can spend a bit more and go the TOP version of the card where you'll have some more performance on tap.
