What's better graphic card GeForce 7300GT 256 DDR2 or GeForce 8500GT 256 DD2

Im intrested i have Pentium Dual Core 3.2 GHz with 1 Gb RAM (667MHz) im curious about how much difference will be in games (FPS) compared with some Core2Duo 2.66 GHz, 2Gb RAM (800MHz) with the same graphic card. I have GeForce 7300GT DDR2 256 MB. Thx

I doubt that a 8500GT would give you a big boost if any. The 8500GT just isn't designed for gaming on any level. You're probably better off saving that $80 for something more useful. Not that its a bad card, for everyday tasks and DVD and some HD playback is fine.

If you wanted to get a video card that will allow you play some older games like Counter Strike: Source and you're on a tight budget, a 2600pro might be a good way to go.

So it really depends on what type of games your going to be playing and at what resolution. But as I said before 7300GT and the 8500GT, gaming really isn't its focus.

Yeah... Well here most computers has those graphic cards and im not planing to buy 8500 :)  bcz here ppl dont want to spend more money on some good graphic cards. 7300GT is handing pretty good in some games like NFS MW, FEAR or Quake 4 with 50-60FPS on 1024x768 with details some on high some on medium

Just one question. Is computer configureation (prossesor and ram) are VERY important for high FPS on games ? Thx

The processor and ram do matter to some extent, but the GPU is the most important part to gaming. I was able to play Oblivion on mostly high @ 1024x768 with decent FPS on an Athlon XP 3200+ with 1GB of ram using a 6800GT. When I used my mom's laptop, Core 2 Duo T7200, 2GB of RAM with a 6150, it'd barely run at all.
