In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 2500 Desktop are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT.

The Graphics 2500 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6800 XT, and so the Graphics 2500 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6800 XT 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 GeForce 6800 XT has 256 MB video memory, but the Graphics 2500 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 2500 Desktop has 24 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 XT has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 2500 is 76 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 XT is 4. The Graphics 2500 having 72 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 2500 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 6800 XT.
