Closed BIOSTAR A68I-350 (APU) vs 9500GT Tags: Graphics Cards Gaming Biostar Graphics Last response: January 26, 2013 11:13 PM in Graphics & Displays Share ramsfan6239 January 12, 2013 4:35:54 PM I'm building a mini ITX PC with the BIOSTAR A68I-350 with the 350 APU. I was looking around for a cheap graphics card (5670 maybe?) Then I remembered I had an old 9500 in my 7 year old rig. I'm looking to watch 1080p videos/shows and do some gaming. Which would be better....the APU or 9500gt? I will be upgrading to a good dedicated card later on (Maybe a 550 ti of the such). But for now, should I use one of the above for some light gaming, or am I expecting too much from them?

Then just see which one is faster. The 9500GT has 32 cores at 550mhz, which isn't all that good... a 40$ gt610 can easily beat that with 48 cores at 800mhz. \ Just looked up that the motherboard has a built in hd6310, which has 80 cores at 500mhz. http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-6310.40952.0... Its a close call, but I think the integrated graphics might just beat it... captain_Woof January 20, 2013 9:16:26 AM If you click the link, it shows some basic game benchmarks. It can play some older games.... but not really the newest of them. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer ramsfan6239 January 26, 2013 11:05:26 PM Best answer selected by ramsfan6239.
