In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 8300 are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon 9250.

The GeForce 8300 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon 9250, and so the GeForce 8300 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon 9250 when running the latest games.

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 Radeon 9250 has 128 MB video memory, but the GeForce 8300 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon 9250 has 4 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce 8300 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.
