    Because no one wants to code f@h for stream. And yea it's old, but it's just what the GTS 250 was before it was rebadged from a 9800GTX.

    That is a very misleading statement. The GTS is weaker than the 8800/9800GT in most cases and the 9800GT is pretty equal to a HD4800

    that is EVEN MORE misleading
    you have implied that the 9800GT is equal to even the HD4890

    This is a G92, not G80.

    It's an G92 like Shadow said, and it's faster than 8800GT, which mean it's should be equal with HD4850. :toast:

    Heh meant to say a HD4830.
    Hm didn't notice the core. Dang Nvidia's line is just confusing sometimes :wtf:
    Wow and you get a free game too. Awesome deal indeed

    Performance wise, this card will fall just short of a 9800GTX, but definitely better than a 9800GT.

    The 512mb of Vram lets you know its G92. There is no G80 8800gts that has 512mb Vram.
