GeForce GTS 250 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTS 250 is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Tesla Architecture.


Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed G92-428-B1 which has 8 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 128 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 738MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1100MHz.


Features
DirectX 10.0 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.


Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and it requires at least two 6-pin available connectors.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance around of a Radeon HD 4770, meaning it is much faster than Radeon HD 4850.

gtx740/gtx750 or HD7750/HD7770/R7 240/R7 250
all this cards cant handle above 1GB memory so dont be fooled by 2 or even 4GB versions, they are made with slow and cheap DDR3 memory, get only GDDR5
