Read the following to understand what your getting if your considering a GTS 250.

Regardless of the naming system complexities, the 1 GB version is still a great deal for under $150 if your buying a PCI-E Video card for the first time! Or especially for a PC with a smaller case! (Get one with a lifetime warranty. )
Not exactly. An 8800GTX still has a wider bus than any of those technologies. A 9800GTX+ is an 8800GTS 512MB on 55nm.
