    Heyy,

    I was wondering...Is a 9800GTX+ Better then a GTS 250?
    I personally would like an EVGA Card but seeing as it is cheaper where I buy my parts from...Does it have better performance?

    I'm only asking because Next year im getting that 3D Pack from NVIDIA with the glasses and TV but it says you need a 9800GTX+ OR BETTER. Besides this is a budget gaming rig and i save $17 bucks and i want to be sli and 3D ready! :rockout:

    NOTE: the 9800GTX+ is 1GB

    Plz Help
    I need the results for next week!
    :D

    GTS 250 and 9800GTX+ are the same card. I would get which ever is cheaper since they are the exact same thing.

    You most likely got the better of the two. Smaller PCB, one six pin connector, uses less power and generally gets a couple FPS more (from the reviews I've seen - which is about all anyone can say).

    if u buy the 9800GTX+ you should be able to flash it with the GTS250 Genetic bios from Nvidia or the Gigabyte GTS250 bios to turn 9800GTX+ into GTS250 :rolleyes:

    No I'm not. There were 9800GTX's that were short and only used 1 6pin far before the 250's came out.
