More about : good wa1 a c 189 U Graphics card December 17, 2010 6:12:16 PM 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. Score 0 jerreece a b U Graphics card December 17, 2010 6:17:48 PM 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.

Get the answer Psychoteddy December 17, 2010 6:31:52 PM 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.

That's more than enough for your resolution, and no need to change PSU, your current one can handle either card just fine...
