Galaxy Readying GeForce GTS 250 Cool Edition

Galaxy is preparing yet another GeForce GTS 250 SKU, this one labeled "Cool Edition", owing to its design that focuses on the GPU cooler. The card uses the usual Galaxy shade of blue colour. The PCB holds a 5-phase VRM for the GPU and memory, and is cooled by dedicated heatsink. The center of attraction is the GPU cooler, which looks elliptical. From its central GPU contact base made of copper, arise several radially-projecting, forked aluminum fins. Nested in a plastic shroud is an 80 mm fan for active cooling, while the memory cools directly under its airflow.

This card comes in two variants based on memory size: 512 MB and 1 GB. It uses fairly standard clock speeds of 702 MHz (core), and 1000 MHz (memory). Output connectors include DVI-D, D-Sub, and HDMI with provision for audio routing from your sound-card. The card can pair with two more of its kind (or GPU at least), for 3-way SLI. Expect standard pricing when this hits stores soon.

Cool Edition
Clearly, this is a jest.
That sad excuse of a HSF means the real name of this card should be "Scorching Hot Edition".

sorry for bumping an oooooold thread but I have a few questions.

I can pick one of these up for $45 locally, I currently have a evga 9600gt 512mb(normal version) with a 9500gt(for phisx) on the way...

would the 250gts be a decent upgrade to replace the 9600/9500 combo, or should I hold out for another card? I don't see the 4xx cards getting below the $70 for awhile...
