    The 9400gt Has better video playback support. The 6150 only has the first generation of PureVideo, while the 9400 has the second generation, which offers more support for VC-1 and H.264 than just motion compensation. Also, if you're running Linux, the first generation isn't supported.

  2. Install it,its better than a 6150
  3. the 9400Gt with its dedicated on-board RAM will lessen the burden on your system RAM.
  4. Thank you very much for your reply,may I ask why you think it's better?(if your not busy)

    On the 9400 there is a little wire with a coupler or plug that looks like it accepts two prongs,what is this and what do I plug it into?
