Nvidia vs ati

Hello,
I have a choice out of 2 video cards, nVidia 9400 GT (1Gb of video RAM) and an ATI Radeon 4670 (512 video RAM). The nVidia card will set me back $20 but I'm just wondering if it is really worth it. I play games with my computer and i havent had any trouble playing games on high (or highish) graphics on a 1360x768 resolution until i got Just Cause 2. I was able to use the nVidia card and at the moment i have it in my house but I'm not sure if it really made any difference. I have (at the moment) 2GB of DDR2 RAM and a 3GHz AMD Phenon II processor.
Thanks to anyone who replies!

  1. HD4670 is faster than 9400GT... :)
  2. Best answer
    9600GT ~ HD4670 > 9500GT > 9400GT

    The HD 4670 is going to do much better job with games than the 9400GT (which was never meant to be a gaming card)
  3. +1 for the HD4670, the 1GB on the other card is pure smoke, by the time any application needs that much the card will have slowed to a crawl anyway.

    Funny, because it's considered to be crawling nowadays, let alone in the future.
    The 4670 has been known to perform like a 9600gt for cheaper. The 9600 is better, but by a bit.
  5. Thank You to everyone who replied, and that quick as well. I did make a mistake though my processor is an Athlon II not a Phenom II, sorry about that, it shouldn't change much though.
  6. 4670 GDDR3 512MB is a bit faster than the 4670 1GB DDR3
