Hello,

yesterday I have upgrade my pc from

Gigabyte GA-MA-78GM-S2H,
AMD ATHLON X2 5000+,
5GB DDR2 RAM Buffalo
GeForce 9400GT

to

ASUS M4A88T-M
AMD PHENOM 2 X4 955
6GB RAM DD3
GeForce 9400GT

and the question is about my graphic card I have GeForce 9400GT that I have left in my new pc. Which GPU is better GeForce 9400 GT or integrated AMD Radeon HD 4250 in my new asus MB.

Note: I use two display's, 22 inch, each at 1920 x 1080 px

The 9400GT, but a 9400GT is still crappy for gaming. I don't understand why you switched motherboards. Your Gigabyte board would have accepted the 955 just fine. You could have put the money you spent on the motherboard and RAM towards a new GPU.

yeah the 9400gt is better but not by much overall it is a terrible gaming card and should be reserved for htpc use, which the 4250 would have been fine at doing in the first place. If you are gaming at 1080p the 9400gt will get you no where near where you want to be. you should sell your 9400gt and get at least a 6850 or better, also what psu are you running?

lol "5 gig of ram buffalo" wtf?

thanks for answer megamanx00,
Your solution is better and cheaper but I have fear to update my BIOS on Gigabtyte because I never did that.

It's not that hard really. Gigabyte especially provides a utility to flash the BIOS from Windows. You only need to visit the Gigabyte website and look up your specific board to see how to update its BIOS. If something goes wrong, you can always try to RMA it and just say it stopped working :p
