NVIDIA GeForce G210 vs ATI Radeon HD 4350 graphics

I am planning on buying a new desk top computer. One comes with the Nvidia card, the other with the ATI 4350. Can anyone give me input? The actual model numbers are #Model: s5260f & #Model: e9220y both HP.

  1. Best answer
    I would buy the e9220y since it is not a slimline like the s5260f regardless of GPU. It is easier to upgrade a normal size tower than slimline. Neither gf210 nor hd4350 should be considered gaming cards.

    I think the G210 is faster but it's the difference of 7fps vs 5fps. You're not gonna be happy trying to play a game with either :D.
  3. My other option I am looking at is another hp I built: Model #e9250t series

    That is a solid system apart from the GPU. HD4650 would be a minimal gaming card but it is much stronger than the other two.
  5. Thanks for the info. I have even asked a sales rep at BestBuy who more is less told me to buy one of the other desktops listed then go out and replace the graphics card,
  6. The problem with prebuilds is that they have relatively small Power supply's. So upgrading the GPU after wards is a limited option because the PSU is not powerful enough for powerful cards. The best cards I recommend for the standard HP and Dell PSU are HD4670 or the new GT240.
