WEI is not so good. If you want more accurate test for game performance run 3dmark test.
Also try updating your drivers. That may be one of things that your WEI is lower.

Hate to say it but you didn't actually upgrade anything, your old card is actually faster than the new one. You essentially replaced one low end video card with one that is even lower, that is why the WEI score went down.

Don't let the amount of memory on the card fool you, that for the most part has no bearing on how fast the card is. On a card like the G210 having 1 GB of memory on the card is pure marketing as the card isn't fast enough to ever make use of it. You want to upgrade from your 8500 GT you need to look at something a little beefier than the G210.

That depends on how much you're willing to spend, and what you're looking to do with the card.
