In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 780 XGL are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 8200.

The GeForce 8200 has a 225 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Quadro4 780 XGL. This results in the GeForce 8200 providing 1.8 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since the GeForce 8200 supports up to DirectX 10.

The GeForce 8200 has a 225 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro4 780 XGL and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce 8200 providing 0.9 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. The GeForce 8200 supports up to DirectX 10, so pixeling performance is not particularly relevant for this GPU. It would be relevant for comparing the Quadro4 780 XGL with other old GPUs, but in this case it is probably safe to say that the GeForce 8200 is superior.

The GeForce 8200 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro4 780 XGL, and so the GeForce 8200 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 GeForce 8200 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 GeForce 8200 has 8. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro4 780 XGL is 1 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8200 is 10. The GeForce 8200 having 9 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro4 780 XGL performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce 8200 transistor size technology is 70 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro4 780 XGL. This means that the GeForce 8200 is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro4 780 XGL. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce 8200 should consume less power than the Quadro4 780 XGL.
