We know about the GTS 250; it's nothing more than a rebranded 9800 GTX+. While this is annoying to a degree for the less experienced users who tend not to keep up with what's happening, if you are looking for something that is to be a well known contender, then the GTS 250 could well be a good choice.
Since the card is a 9800 GTX+ and it's been out for so long now, companies have been able to offer a good range of options from the word go. Today we'll have a look at what exactly GIGABYTE has done to the card and if it can stand out from the competition.
We will have a closer look at the card itself in just a moment, but before that we'll have a quick look at the package. After we've looked at the card we'll then take the time to get stuck into the benchmark side of things to see the performance of the card.
