yes because you'll need at least a 450 watt psu for a 9800gt

The 250 is better because its based on the 9800 gtx.

Direct x is needed for you to be able to play games.

The shader clock on this model is only 1512 mhz compared to 1800-something for a normal GTS 250. The core clock and memory are also down a few percent from a standard GTS 250. I'd try to find a different model of GTS 250.

You'll be able to play new games on medium settings on a Full HD screen.
That is so utterly wrong. A GT220 is NOT better than a 9800GT. Go look at the benchmark scores; and also go read some reviews that pit the two cards against each other. The 9800GT consistently scores significantly better in benchmarks, and runs every game at much higher framerates than the GT220 does.

The proof is in the pudding.
Go look at the numbers. The 9800GT is a more powerful card than the GT220. Period. End of story. No question about it.

The 250 is better than the 9800GT, as I said before, because it has higher clock speeds and more stream processors.
DirectX is... well, I could type page after page describing it, but all you need to know is higher versions of DirectX are better.
If, for example, you have an operating system that supports DirectX 10, and a graphics card that supports DirectX 10, and a game that is capable of taking advantage of DirectX 10 features, then that game will look slightly prettier/more realistic than it would if you were running a graphics card that only supported DirectX 9.

To put it simply, higher DirectX versions aren't that important as far as the actual power of a graphics card is concerned; but having a higher DirectX version can potentially make games look a little bit prettier.

Buy the GTS 250. You won't be disappointed

Ah, Nice eye, Zathras! I didn't notice that.
That particular GTS250, even with its lower clock speeds, is still a much better card than a 9800GT.

@Key4You - That Palit GTS250 that I linked to is still much more powerful/better than the 9800GT, but if you want a "full blown" GTS250, then it looks like this one is your best bet. If you don't want to spend $125 on a card, then get the Palit one - if you'd like an additional 15% or so performance increase over the Palit card, then get that ECS one that I just now linked to. They're both great cards, you'll be very satisfied with either one, but the ECS one is a bit more powerful. It's up to you, now, to decide

The 9800GT also comes in a "Green" version requiring no external power.

I'm not really much of a gamer, however in my current Windows 7 box, I run a 512MB 9800GTX+ and at 1920x1080, it runs Crysis, Crysis Warhead and Wolfenstein very respectably with video settings on high.

Radeon 4890 for price/performance, 5870 for another choice. The 250 will choke if you up the filtering and isn't up to ultra high in Far Cry 2 @ 1080p.
