I just bought this computer and it has Intel HD Graphics on board.

I also have this old nVidia 7800GT video card lying around:

Which do you think is better, the Intel or the Nvidia?

the 7800GT is a huge upgrade over any integrated graphics, assuming you have a power supply for it.

7800gt hands down, it might be as old as time its self but a hell of a lot better than any Intel gpu.

The new computer has a 300W PS, but I don't have much in it. I swapped out the HD with an SSD. Only other thing in there is the DVD burner.

You are ok so long your cpu doesn't draw 130-140w at load and the psu is of a quality build.

If you plan on playing games then the 7800GT is the better choice.
