In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1050 XT are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 6500.

The X1050 XT was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6500, and so the X1050 XT is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 6500.

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 X1050 XT, 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 3.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the X1050 XT, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6500 is marginally better than the X1050 XT.

The Radeon X1050 XT has 8 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6500 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the X1050 XT is 2 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6500 is 1. The X1050 XT having 1 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 6500 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon X1050 XT requires 24 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 6500.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon X1050 XT is an entry-level GFX based on the 110nm variant of the R400 architecture.
It's based on the RV410 Core and offers 8 Pixel Shaders, 8 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 64-bit of standard DDR. The central unit runs at 400MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 200MHz. Expect a TDP of up to 24 Watt.
Radeon X1050 XT is not related to the rest of the X1000 Series GPUs due to being based on the R400 architecture and not on the R500. It's instead a slightly lower clocked X700 and should offer similar performance. Its performance is relatively limited - even for DirectX 9 based games. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
The NVIDIA GeForce 6500 and 6200 graphics processing units (GPUs) featuring NVIDIA TurboCache technology take full advantage of the PCI Express bus to deliver the turbocharged system performance you need to play all the hottest games and applications.
