Which graphics card is better?

Specs: Windows XP home SP3
I have GIGA-BYTE GeForce 9400 GT Graphics Card - nVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT 550MHz - 512MB GDDR2 SDRAM 128bit - PCI Express 2.0 x16.

The problem is that games like Crysis and Crysis Warhead with medium settings run slow on this, can anyone advise a better card. The motherboard is Foxcon. My Budget is £200. Thanks

We need more info. CPU, RAM, motherboard & power supply specs would be helpful. Apparently you're in the UK?

You can get a pretty hefty card for £200. The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 would be your best bet.

But first, make sure that your case and power supply can handle that card; it's a very long card that consumes quite a bit of electricity.

The power supply is 350 watts. Motherboard is Foxcon P35AX-5, processor is Quad core and the RAM is 4 GB and Hard drive is 750 GB with SATA Cable. Will GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 fit with Foxconn P35AX-S motherboard? I was just checking in the case and because the SATA cable is attached to the hard drive so i don't know how will the card fit in that space. Please let me know if you need more info. Thanks for the help.

Yes i am in uk, Birmingham to be precise.

"The power supply is 350 watts"

That's not enough for a high end gaming card.

Thanks for that Jam, i also have a new XFX 1024Mb nVidia GeForce 9400 GT PCI-Express VGA Card with my 350 Watts PSU can i install this new card or do you still think that 350 watts PSU is still insufficient? thank you.

That's a good choice since your psu is weakish. Should work okay, but you probably can't play the newest games with high detail smoothly, adjust the in game graphics to something the card can handle.

thanks for that, the only reason i am changing my graphix card is cus crysis and crysis warhead lags on my current card big time, but COD 4 modern warfare and COD world at war runs absolutely brilliant. No lags no nothing, i just hope that the new card will make gameplay for crysis and crysis warhead better.

The 9400GT isn't a very good card. 1GB memory is totally unnecessary...they only do that to sucker people into buying it. The best card you can get to run with a "weak" PSU is the Radeon 4670.

Have a look at this "Graphics Card Hierarchy Chart". You'll see the 9400GT performs comparably to the old 6600GT or 7300GT.


Now look at this:
