What model of core 2 duo?
Monitor resolution?
The rest of your system?

9400GT is not even a gaming card, that's a HTPC card.
You will need GT240/9600GT or HD5670 minimum to play games with "reasonable" fps.

Since you're benchmarking with 3DMark I'm assuming you intend to play games with this computer? If so, as wa1 already stated, the 9400GT isn't really a gaming level graphics card.

Also, everything depends also on what games you intend to play, and what resolution your monitor is. :)

Honestly that's not a very high score. Considering that most current systems are running 10,000+ 3dmarks you can get an idea of how that compares.

Go with a GT250 and you'll see a huge difference for a pretty reasonable price.

No need to spend $200, just get GT240 512MB or HD5670 512MB (about $90-$100). That's more than enough for your resolution, and no need to change PSU, your current one can handle either card just fine...
