It seems to have a similar gpu speed as the 8600gt but with half the shaders. It ought to run games up to 1024x768 with lowered in-game settings.

The numbers games for card naming isnt always consistant up or down. The 9500gt is 2-3 times faster and the 9600gt is another whole another level up, but you would assume a similar margin between the three, but no.

Return it.

you'll need to be more specific that just "is it good". it all depends on what you're going to do with it. if you're going to be playing demading 3d games on a 24" monitor, then go return it as fast as humanly possible. but if you only need it so you can have dual monitors, or just to watch HD video, then yes, it is good.

If you are going to try and play any games on it then no. I say return it, like now.

spend the extra 50 bux and get a 9800 gt.

a low end card with that much memory is a total waste of money. the extra memory will not help because the card itself isn't actually powerful enough to utilize the memory.

+1 pinaplex

USELESS 1g ... 256mb is enough on a 9400gt...

go for at least 9600gt for little gaming, and 9800gt for better performance.

AND + + + + if you want plus ...

Recommendation for a decent video card would be the 9600GT (60w) or the HD 4670 (47w).

Get the HD 4650 if you have a 250w PSU or less. Haven't seen any power measurements for this card, but I would figure at most 40w.
