  • 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. As with any graphics card, physical installation is fairly simple - just open up your desktop, plug it in, and providing the correct drivers have been installed beforehand, it should start working immediately - I had no problems when installing mine.

Geforce - Excellent

  • Excerpt: "I am using a NVIDIA Geforce 8400GS in my system, and thats awesome. It gives a good acceleration for my games and other Graphics demanding softwares. For example when I use a software named Stellarium which is a astronomical software that displays current star locations, without the drivers installed , there is a very poor performance. But after installation of the Graphics drivers the software runs well. It is nice in Windows 7, but even then my ...
  • Pros: Excellent for most of the games, 3D vision available
  • Cons: Not sufficient for heavy Gamers, Not sufficient for Windows 7 aero (but thats not a big problem)

  • 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. The card installs in the PCI-E x1 slot, not the x16 slot as others have mentioned.

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). This card is still relatively competitively priced if all you want to do is play movies and enjoy some older games.

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 this graphics card, if you tweak the settings.

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. For a start the graphics card is nice and cheap, will probably cost you £25-£30 if you look around on the web, well worth it considering how well it will run most games, only the most recent games will have trouble running.

The card is easy to install with Nividia great customer support if you need help, becuase your buying ...
