In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 3800 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition.

The GT 220 was released less than a year after the Quadro FX 3800, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition and the Quadro FX 3800 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Quadro FX 3800 has 44.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 220, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 3800 is noticeably better than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition has 48 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 3800 has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 220 is 60 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 3800 is 116. The Quadro FX 3800 having 56 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro FX 3800 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition requires 58 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 3800 requires 108 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 220 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the Quadro FX 3800. The Quadro FX 3800 requires 50 Watts more than the GT 220 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 3800 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 220.
