Should i use a 8400gs card or Intel's HD 2500

I have a Intel Core i5-3450 and a very very old 8400gs without the fan its the silent heat sink one,
and i was wondering how much exactly a performance boost i would get by removing the card and using Intel's HD 2500,
i tried to research and find out but couldn't figure out anything much,

and help would be greatly appreciated !

  1. 8400 GS = Direct X10
    HD 2500= Direct X11
    Both are not meant or good for gaming.
    Stick with the HD 2500 since it uses less power.

    Thank you for your prompt reply !
    and I understand both are not meant for gaming,
    but could you just help me with one last thing,
    by telling much just how much of a difference is there between them?
    just to fulfill a curious bug in my brain, if its not too much trouble...

    HD 4000> HD 3000=HD 5450/9400GT> HD 2500 >8400GS
    Here's a comparison between Nvidia, AMD and Intel.
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-7.html
    The HD 2500 is a little bit faster than the HD 2000 with support for DirectX 11 while the HD 2000 only have DirectX 10.1
    I would suggest sticking with HD 2500 since the 8400 GS is really a low end card way back in 2007.
