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. 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.

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. makubex1211 December 18, 2010 3:43:35 AM well resolution is 1366 x 768... which graphic card shud i go for? makubex1211 December 18, 2010 3:44:47 AM i intend to play games like Crysis at decent fps. microterf December 18, 2010 3:52:21 AM what's your budget? makubex1211 December 18, 2010 3:54:39 AM say within 200$ wa1 a c 189 U Graphics card December 18, 2010 5:56:06 AM What is your FULL specs?

That's more than enough for your resolution, and no need to change PSU, your current one can handle either card just fine... makubex1211 December 18, 2010 9:44:24 AM Best answer selected by makubex1211.
