I'd say go for it. Still a good performer the 275, and only thing you'd really be missing out on his DX11.

GTX250...? I can't seem to find any information on the NVidia site about that one.. Closest I can find is the GTS250 and GTX260.

Edit:
If you were referring to the GTS250; that is essentially a re-branded 9800GTX, which is a minor upgrade from the 8800GTS G92 I currently have. Not much of an 'upgrade' there.
If you meant the GTX260, then considering the 260 and 275 are so similarly priced, wouldn't the 275 be a better choice anyway..?

Yup.. That's kinda where my head is at right now. But I'm not building this with DX11 in mind anyway, so that part really doesn't bother me at all.


Well, thanks for all the food-for-thought and suggestions guys, greatly appreciated. I think I'll settle for the GTX275 after all... All things considered, it seems like the best move right now.
