Default Would that Geforce 8500GT Kick the crap out 7300GS?

Geforce 8500GT compare to 7300GS?

If no, is it better than the 7300GS game performance wise? How much faster is it compare to the 7300GS? from 1 to 5 with 1 being a little faster and 5 allot faster. If there were to be actual scores of the cards would be better.

How about the GeForce 8400GS? compare to the 8500GT? how much of a difference is there going to be between these two?

I need an answer fast since the rebates ends tonight.

Thank you

the 8500 isn't really a gaming card...... its designed for media centre or silent pc use with minor gaming ability.

I could see that being pretty hard to find...You might need to spend around $100 to get a pretty decent graphics card. My 7600GT is pretty decent and it can handle that fine, but costs ~$120 new...though, is minimizing really all that important? Can't you just play your game and not minimize? Or is it cuz you're trying not to get caught playing it? haha.


Anyways, you MIGHT be able to get your hands on a decent card which could minimize w/o problems for around $80...but I don't know if you could go as low at $50-60.
