Nvidia GEForce7600GT vs. Asus EN8400GS

Hello! Would the installation of the Asus 8400 be an upgrade from the 7600? Would I get better performance? 256mb memory in both. Thanks in advance!

Other than adding DX10 support, not in the slightest. here is a review of the slightly faster 8500GT (faster than the 8400GS, not the 7600GT that is),

techPowerUp :: Zotac GeForce 8500 GT Review :: Page 1 / 15

It doesn't have the 7600GT in it but the slower 7600GS, and the 7600GS still beats or matches the 8500GT in most tests.

Thanks stormy13. Not what I wanted to hear, but maybe I'll learn to research my purchases in the future! Well, back to eBay!

hi... i recommend u to get 8600GT(DDR3 ver.) instead.. Cheap but reliable card. Still better than 7600GT though let alone 8400GS

RULE OF THUMB... WELL, FOR THE MOST PART, or at least, what I have been able to understand in a few years.

The lower the number of the Video Card the more economical or Bargain Bin it will be, the higher the better.

I also believe that this is true for better performance... GTX, GT, GS, GSO

As an example, you have the 7600GT, a good upgrade (worth spending money on) would have been a 512MB 8600GS or GT, 8800GS, GT or GTX and anything below that is a waste of money... but you now know that so we won't beat you up to much

Don't get discourage, try to move the card on ebay and buy a better one.

Now, you must be careful though, if you have an Iffy PSU, a bigger/better card may not be pushed by the PSU and you are doing even worse now.

Just to add to what AstaLaVista said about the PSU. Your specs show you only have a 250w, so double check whatever the power requirements for any card you're looking at otherwise you could run into trouble.

For example an 8800GT's recommended PSU requirement is around 400w.

yes...agree with smarteyeball.. The last GC that not require an aftermarket PSU/6-pin PCI-e power connector is the one that i stated above (8600GT). So if u don't plan on getting the new PSU but want the average but efficient card juz go for 8600GT @ 9500GT.. Cheers
