Re: video card with 8400GS good?
Be careful in that the low-end card in the next numerical product ID may
have (and often do have) lower performance the the mid-high to high-end
cards in the previous numerical product ID. That is, the next number ID
in the series will overlap the prior number, not start with its
performance at, or greater, than the prior number ID. That is why the
numbering for the card IDs is so very misleading.
Since you don't give an example of what you consider a "higher-end vide
card", no help can be provider. Obviously if the other item used for
comparison was a "higher-end video card" then it is already evident
there is a difference, but "difference" hasn't been defined, either. If
you're not doing anything 3D (which probably also means you don't need
DX 9 or 10 support), then you could stick in a $15 video card.
