In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition are very slightly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 1800.

The Quadro FX 1800 was released over a year more recently than the GT 220, and so the Quadro FX 1800 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 220.

The GT 220 has 256 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 1800, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Quadro FX 1800 has superior memory performance.

The Quadro FX 1800 has 32 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 220, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 1800 is noticeably better than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition has 48 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 1800 has 64. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 220 is 60 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 1800 is 35. The GT 220 having 25 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 1800 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition requires 58 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 1800 requires 59 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 220 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Quadro FX 1800. The Quadro FX 1800 requires 1 Watts more than the GT 220 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro FX 1800 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 220.
