Radeon hd 4370 is close to hd 4770 in perfomance, geforce 8400 isn't a good card so go 4 ati radeon hd 4370.

"ati hd 4370-512mb"

Are you sure about that? I didn't know there was an HD 4370, but if there is such a model, it certainly isn't close to the 4770 in performance. There is an HD 4350 though so if the 4370 does exist, it should be slightly better than that. And since the HD 4350 is better than the 8400GS, the HD 4370 would be the better choice. However, none of these cards are gaming cards...if that's the purpose of the upgrade, you shouldn't consider any of them.

Just so you know, the 2nd number in ATI's model numbering system is basically the performance level. All the Radeon cards mentioned are from the HD 4000 series, but there's no way a 4300 is faster than a 4700. Are you sure it's not an HD 4730?

"gigabyte ga41"

No such model.
If you mean G41, that's not enough info. There are 16 possible models that have the Intel G41 chipset:

The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a generic desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots.

The model is often also displayed on a logo (graphical) screen early in the boot, but it's often not as specific as the specific model number.

4370 is not on this list, but Geforce 8400GS is listed #105, Radeon HD3450 #104, 4370 is superior to 3450, so I suspect 4370 is far better that 8400

There are a few hits on the web for 4370, including a Powercolor and Sapphire version, but neither Powercolor or Sapphire list it on their sites??
ATI lists only the 4350 series.

So - maybe 4370 was supposed to be 4730.
