    Default GeForce GTS240 = 9800GT OC

    The renaming/rebranding saga continues as NV will call the 9800GT Overclocked edition a GTS240.
    The core/shader/memory clock of GTS 240 is 675/1688/2200MHz, compared with 600/1500/1800MHz found on 9800GT. So there should be good performance jump.
    The 9800GT will also be sold,but it has a newer version called 9800GT "green" edition. It basically has a lower power consumption.The green edition has a core/shader clock of 600/1500MHz.
    So, u can say that they are different, atleast clock wise. But the GTS250 is ditto as a 9800GTX+.

    nop it will need external power.
    The 9600GT "green" (few models) do not require external power.

    But it GTS 250 is cheaper than 9800gtx+. I checked with the local retail vendor today. the price for GTS250 is 10,500+tax and 9800gtx+ is 11,800+tax.

    So logically speaking GTS250 should give you better Rupees/Frame-rate ratio than 9800gtx+.

    ^ thats totally true.
    Well, my point was that many ppl think higher number = faster. Which is incorrect.So if some1 rich upgrades frm a 9800GTX+ to a GTS250 thinks its an "upgrade".

    Actually, GTS250 is a pretty good deal. U can buy it here here for Rs 9600 here:
    TheITWares - Graphic Cards

    Note: This card is FASTER than a ATI HD4850. U can find 4850 for as low as 8k now. Both are very good deals, both have their pros and cons, overall good.

    Yes Its more like lateral move rather than an upward move.

    The 1 GB variant is available at ~10,500 for both zotac and palit.

    I have seen so many reviews for GTS 250 being compared to 4850, in almost all the test the nvidia card beats 4850. There isn't a huge performance gap between the two but its noticeable.

    A very good and comprehensive review at Guru3d.

    PS: there isn't a big performance increase with memory going from 1GB to 2GB...Its hardly noticeable.

    lol y r u goin to 2GB memory ??

    If u r buying a new card, i would recommend 1GB,not 512MB or 2GB. cos if u play at 1920x1080(Full HD tvs), the 1GB would help. Else, if u WILL play at lower res, 512MB is fine ........

    I am going for a 1GB card in the near future. I have a 22" LG l224ws LCD, so I'll be playing most of the games at 1680x1050.

    I don't know whether 2GB is available in India. There is hardly any performance bump with 2GB. I think 1GB will suit me perfectly.

    Plus the price difference between 512mb and 1GB is just 1000/-.

    ^^ Wiser choice. gts 250 is a rebranded 9800gtx+ and done so since 4850 poverised other cards in the same price when it was newly launched. Nvidia is good at rebranding their products once their model is defeated. Besides 4850 was ruling the mid end graphic card business for a long time and longlasted pretty nicely, so since nvidia wanted to protect their nose they had to rebrand to sell cheaper. If you see it that way Ati did nvidia fans a favour :P. Although 4870 512MB is a better choice, but I think you will end paying bit more IF you were to buy the card now.
    Congrats on the buy. Some screenshots of benchmark and gpu-z/cpu-z link would be help to give people a better idea.
