  1. not well.

    This is the current baddy. Its about 17x faster than your current card.

    But in your case, if your looking for an upgrade a 4850 should suffice.

  2. The 4850 will probably be overkill also. A 4670 might be better, or waiting 2 weeks for a 4750 would make more sense.
  3. $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
  4. 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.

    Smart decision, dont put any more money into this system. Just build a new one.
