We've liked the GTS 250 from the word go. While we understand that it's nothing more than a 9800 GTX+, it's got all the features that we want out of a graphics card. For starters, we know that the performance is there; the 9800 GTX+ was no slouch which means the GTS 250 isn't going to be either.
Then there's the price. The rebranding of the model and the time it's been around makes the price of the product quite aggressive which is always a good thing. What you end up with is a good valued graphics card that packs quite a punch.
Like we've mentioned a few times, though, one of the coolest features of the model is, because it's been out for a while now we see companies mixing it up, be it overclocking the model or going down the aftermarket cooling route.
Today we're going to have a look at the GTS 250 from ECS. What we'll mainly be looking for is how it differs to other models we've seen before. Let's have a look at the package before taking a closer look at the card.
