Hi, new to these forums, here is my first post...


Which one of these old GPUs should I use in a spare PC I want to put in another room? I will do some minor overclocking of the card I use. Which one would give me the best gaming performance? I realize that none of them are really gaming cards, but finances are tough and it is all I have right now...

8400GS 256MB (small fan and heat sink)
9400GT 512MB (small fan and heat sink)
Radeon HD 4350 1GB (just a heat sink, although I could attach a fan).


The computer contains an Intel Core 2 CPU 6400 @ 2.13GHz and 4 GB RAM.  Am running Windows 7 64 bit.





* The title of the post was supposed to be Which GPU for an Old Computer.  Not sure what happened to the rest of it! :unsure:


Edited post title and moved to a more appropriate forum from Internal hardware.

Useful site to look up the rough comparative performance of any GPU's - http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu_list.php


From a quick look, looks like the 9400GT will be the quickest.

Thanks.  I might see if I can remove the heat sink and put some Arctic Silver 5 on it before overclocking.
