Hi, I have a Radeon HD 6450 graphics card in my Dell XPS 8300 desktop pc and have just taken out an Nvidia Geforce GT 640 2GB card out of another pc. Is it worth swapping the 6450 for the 640, will I gain improved graphics quality in everyday multimedia applications and web streaming?
Thanks, Paul

Its a better card but I don't think you will notice the difference unless you currently notice any lag on anything you mentioned.

No not really noticed lag or anything, was wondering if I would get better picture quality, less grain, sharper image, etc.

Better internet connection and monitor will help more

Streaming is generaly ok, every now and again little buffering if at all and I use a 40" flat screen tv for viewing streaming films and the monitor is generaly ok for other applications.
