Which graphics card is better?

Hello, recently a friend of mine who is pretty tech-savvy gave me a few old computers and a graphics card. Now, i am wondering, is that graphics card better than the one in my computer? My computer's is the factory one. And, if the one he gave me is better, will it work in my computer?

The card (the front of the box):
Thanks!

    yes this is better than what is already in your computer, not by much, but by a little bit.

    Ok, would it work in my computer? And, would it be able to play all the games my Nvidia one could?
    Thsnks!
  3. It should work in your computer without issue. I don't see anything on the box which identifies the card as an AGP or PCI version, so it should be PCI-E (which is what your motherboard accepts). Understand, however, that this is an extremely old graphics card and is no longer supported by AMD (not since 2006). There are no Windows Vista, 7, or 8 drivers for this card.

    Yes, it should play every game that your current NVidia chip set could (assuming Windows XP OS).

  4. nvm my bad, read the card name wrong on your comp. your nvidia one is actually faster, sorry about that, was in class and couldnt correct myself as quickly as i wanted. yes the new card would work, but you wouldnt see an increase, and would actually see a decrease in performance
