Summary: I have this product pre-installed in my HP pavillion m9240n and the video and graphics performace in Windows vista is horrible. Windows aero experience rates it at 3.5 out of 6... Bad product do not buy.
Perfect for anyone who has a slow/average PC, looking for cheap and quick performance boost.

Excerpt: The 8400GS may be showing its age now, but that perhaps works in its favour - it is very cheap to buy now, and for a beginner looking for a quick and effective upgrade to their system, this is a great choice.
Buy this if you want a cheap method of out putting High Resolution display for Video.

Excerpt: I recently purchased this Graphics Card for next to nothing from eBay; it was £12.99 which seemed like incredible value for such a card. It is a modern specification card, designed for the latest generation of Windows Operating system (Vista and 7) but I use the card with the trusty Windows XP.
A good card to buy if your saving for something better, a stop-gap gfx solution.

Excerpt: The nVidia GeForce 8400 GS is a great little entry level card. Though it has been passed by two full generations of newer cards that fill the same entry level requirements (Ati 4450, 5450 and the GeForce 9400, 220 and low end 400 series).
A nice and cheap graphics card, should be enough to play your average game.

Excerpt: I bought this graphics card last year to replace an old one that came with my PC. Its not the newest or most powerful graphics card around but it does its job. Brand new games that are coming out now (Q3 2010) are too powerful for it to run, but games released in early 2010 and before should run on...
Definetley worth unless your planning on buying very high powered games.

Excerpt: Although the graphics card is officially a 256MB, my computer and games that I use all read it as a 512mb graphics card, so im not quite sure what it is, although i'm happy at viewing it as a 512mb. The graphics card runs on DDR2 RAM.
Damals ordentlich, heute nicht mehr so gut zu brauchen...

Excerpt: Nvidia GeForce 8400GS Ich habe in meinem alten PC eine Grafikkarte drin gehabt, (es handelt sich dabei um meinen Arbeits PC im Programmierstudio in der Firma), wo ich eigentlich damals als ich angefangen habe noch eine Standard Grafikkarte hatte.
Pros: Preis niedrig,
Cons: nur 1 Monitor anschließbar, Preis/Leistung nicht mehr gut, Leistung schwach
Summary: En mi opinion esta es una placa de video muy economica y eficiente para el sector bajo de pc de escritorio e incluso para gamers ocasionales, ideal para gente que quiere tener una placa de video pra trabajar y jugar y no posee mucho dinero.
Summary: NVIDIA ha presentado de forma disimulada la GeForce 8400 GS, la tarjeta DX 10 NVIDIA de gama más baja existente. No se conocen muchos datos de esta tarjeta, pero sí los fundamentales: 8 unidades de procesado de datos y la GPU va a 450 MHz.
