In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Xeon E3-1235 are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro4 780 XGL.

The HD Xeon E3-1235 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro4 780 XGL, and so the HD Xeon E3-1235 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro4 780 XGL 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 Quadro4 780 XGL has 128 MB video memory, but the HD Xeon E3-1235 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Quadro4 780 XGL has 4 Shader Processing Units and the HD Xeon E3-1235 has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro4 780 XGL is 1 and the actual shader performance of the HD Xeon E3-1235 is 32. The HD Xeon E3-1235 having 31 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD Xeon E3-1235 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro4 780 XGL.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro4 780 XGL is a professional graphics card that will deliver similar gaming performance to GeForce4 Ti 4400, though worse due to the lack of support for gaming drivers.HD Xeon E3-1235 is a specific version of the Intel HD P3000 Graphics that comes with the CPU 'Intel Xeon E3-1235'.
Based on the Sandy Bridge architecture, it also features 12 Shader Processing Units, supports openGL up to 3.1, Shader up to 4.0 and DirectX 10.1. Just like other integrated GPUs, it uses system memory and the max memory supported is DDR3-1333, meaning the max memory speed is 667MHz. The CPUs only supports up to dual-channel memory, meaning a 128 bits bus is the largest bus width supported. It comes clocked at 850MHz but the Turbo Boost of the CPU can set it up to 1350MHz.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is on level with an entry-level NVIDIA GeForce GT 410M.
