Its about 17x faster than your current card. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... But in your case, if your looking for an upgrade a 4850 should suffice. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... | Report abuse jennyh Graphics card Expert March 24, 2009 2:19:18 AM The 4850 will probably be overkill also. A 4670 might be better, or waiting 2 weeks for a 4750 would make more sense. | Report abuse Bluescreendeath Graphics card Authority March 24, 2009 2:20:33 AM $80 for a 8400gs is a total rip off. You can get it for $40 (new) at microcenter, or like $10 on ebay. Depending on your power supply, look for upgrades such as: 4670 or 9600GT 8800/9800GT or 4830 9800GTX/GTS250 or 4850 | Report abuse effluo March 24, 2009 2:54:24 PM lol i know 80 is a ripoff, but the rig is old, as in PCI bus. not pci express, or anything else..... i am in the market to put together a new computer but haven't gotten that far yet. just wondering how this old card rates when compared to the best. i probably will not upgrade this card, i will more likely get a new setup altogether. | Report abuse Euphoria_MK March 24, 2009 3:00:43 PM effluo said: i probably will not upgrade this card, i will more likely get a new setup altogether. Smart decision, dont put any more money into this system. Just build a new one.
