✔ Best Answer
The 9400GT is not a gaming card, it's an HTPC card. If you want to turn your system into a gamer, you'll need a decent gaming graphics card & it wouldn't hurt to add more RAM too (if you have 64-bit Windows). Do you know the make/model/wattage of your power supply? Gaming cards require more power than "standard" cards, so if your power supply is weak, you'll either have to upgrade it to be able to handle a decent gaming card, or you'll have to limit your card choice to one that can be handled by your current power supply. The bottom-line is you didn't provide enough info.

Please post your power supply info, what country you're from, & how much you're willing to spend. Have a look at the following article:
