I have a 250 and a 150. In my opinion the 250 is the better card
right now. The work on the driver for the 150 is getting there,
though. But I still have issues with the sound sometimes (sometimes
not) and scaling is broken off and on in the drivers depending on the
version you get. In the backported stuff in the 0.2 version drivers
scaling doesn't work. Thats not unworkable, but for my 250 the
drivers I'm using are real solid (my cards are in different boxes
using different drivers).
I can't say anything about the 350, though.
