Default Which GTS 250?

The Galaxy 25SFF6HMUEXX GeForce GTS 250 512MB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814162029

or

The EVGA 512-P3-1150-TR GeForce GTS 250 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130468

Galaxy comes with Free Crazy Machines2 game downloaded at mfg. site

while the EVGA comes with COD5.

EVGA is more but the rebate comes to the same price.

EVGA
I think its a more reputable brand
Also, it comes with that 2 year manufacturers warranty
And you gotta wait til the 29th to order the Galaxy lol
The free shipping may tempt me, but I would still go with the EVGA

eVGA has a solid reputation. I have never had on of their cards crap out. I still have my old MX400 ticking away in my P3 rig.

It's a reference design, they are identical on a hardware level.

I'd say that if you can, go for this HD 4870 for $125, it will smash the GTS 250.

I would wait until July then to make your decision. Prices may be much different and you could find a better deal on a different card.

Evga has a lifetime warranty on all of their products so long as you register at their website. I would say go with the GTX 260 Core 216, unless it's outside of your budget. It's a great all-around card for a fairly good price that should handle pretty much every game on high, if not maxed.
