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.

the 9400Gt with its dedicated on-board RAM will lessen the burden on your system RAM.

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?
