Default Re: GTS 250 from 8800 GTS Upgrade - Worth It ?

Of course I game at a much higher res so the difference would probably be more noticeable to me than to you.

Edit: Also that at res even with moderate AA/AF I don't think you would benefit much from the 1GB version.

i would suggest you overclock your card. they OC well for the most part and you will see a nice boost. your card should do 600/1500/900 easily.
