I'm talking about adding an extra 120mm fan to the case. And probably not OC'ing.

I would get the xfx. you're essentially paying 5 dollars for like a 50-60 dollar game. Also xfx has a double lifetime warranty I believe.

yeah and XFX is the greatest brand ever. Even their packaging is great. As for the gts250 yes it is a great card to get, it is basically a 9800gtx+ with faster clocks. I guess in a sense a new revision of the 9800gtx+ gpu. So it is slightly better and comes about the same price anyway.
