In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel G43 Express Chipset are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro4 500 XGL.

The G43 Express Chipset was released over three years more recently than the Quadro4 500 XGL, and so the G43 Express Chipset is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro4 500 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 500 XGL has 128 MB video memory, but the G43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Quadro4 500 XGL has 2 Shader Processing Units but the G43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The G43 Express Chipset requires 24 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Quadro4 500 XGL.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro4 500 XGL is a professional graphics card that will deliver similar gaming performance to GeForce4 MX 440, though worse due to the lack of support for gaming drivers, lower memory bandwidth, as well as a lower clocked central unit.Intel G43 Express Chipset comes embedded on the Core 2 Quad/Core 2 Duo CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel GMA X4500.
Due to its characteristics (e.g. Shared Memory) the performance is very limited but might be enough to play today's games at low settings excluding, however, very demanding games like Metro 2033 or The Witcher II, that are unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
