Hello, I bought a new computer and it came with built in graphics. It has Nvidia GeForce 6150 SE with 256mb memory. I just bought a new video card (GeForce 8400 GS with 512mb memory) thinking this will improve gaming.
Am i right or should I keep the built in graphics card?

The 8400GS will improve gaming performance a lot but you will still be stuck on low settings with it.

the 8400gs will own the 6150se anyday... althought the 8400gs inst too good its much better than the 6150se and also remember you can get your 256mb back to use anytime so it will also improve system performance. the 8400gs is also good becuase it can overclock, only a few 6150se support overclocking.... the 8400gs supports dx10 while the 6150se only supports dx9.... the 8400gs will give u much higher framerates in any game.... even the most advance games can be played on the 8400gs but, the newest games dont support the 6150se anymore.... i am using the 6150se to talk to you write now and i have used the 8400gs many times before. my 6150se also has 256mb so here my experience with crysis.... 640x480 all low i get 4-27fps, with the 8400gs 640x480 all low i get 17-39fps so big difference....
have fun :D
