In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6500 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 6200 TurboCache.

Both the GeForce 6500 and the GeForce 6200 TurboCache were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The GeForce 6500 has 128 MB more video memory than the GeForce 6200 TurboCache, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce 6500 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce 6500 has 2.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6200 TurboCache, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6500 is marginally better than the GeForce 6200 TurboCache.

The GeForce 6500 has 4 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6200 TurboCache has 7. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6500 is 1 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6200 TurboCache is 2. The GeForce 6200 TurboCache having 1 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 6500 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.
