Sparkle GTS 250 Graphics Card

sparkle logo 1 Sparkle GTS 250 Graphics Card

Introduction

With home media computers finding their way into many people’s living rooms a need for high-powered hardware in smaller form factors is on the rise.  Many early adopters of Home Theater PCs or HTPCs simply installed tower systems near their high definition TV or wired existing desktop systems in other rooms to the TV.  Now with more widespread adoption many users wanted power horse computer capable of high definition multimedia playback but in a size more suitable to the TV area.  The need for smaller components meant many early adopters had to compromise on speed and power when building an HTPC unit.  Now more powerful hardware is available in smaller sizes such as micro ATX for motherboards and computers cases the size of AV receivers. Graphics cards have improved greatly in recent years, but new cards meant large heatsinks and coolers making it nearly impossible to fit a power house GPU into a smaller case. Sparkle has answered the call for more power in a smaller size with their low profile sized GTS 250 nVidia GPU graphics card. Maintaining a larger cooling  setup for performance and designing the overall card to fit in a low profile scenario makes this card the perfect graphics workhorse for a media computer or slim desktop computer.
