In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel 865G are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2060 6GB GDDR5.

The GTX 2060 was released over three years more recently than the 865G, and so the GTX 2060 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 865G 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 GTX 2060 has 6128 MB more video memory than the 865G, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 2060 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 2060 has 144 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 865G, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 2060 is massively better than the 865G.

The GTX 2060 has 1920 Shader Processing Units but the 865G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 requires 150 Watts to run and the 865G requires 13 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 2060. The GTX 2060 requires 137 Watts more than the 865G to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 2060 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the 865G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce GTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance graphics card based on the Turing architecture. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. Unlike the RTX series, the GTX series does not support real-time ray-tracing. The GeForce GTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 excels at 1080p screen resolution. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106 which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 47 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1365 MHz and goes up to 1680 MHz, in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of slower GDDR5 memory compared to the GDDR6 model, running through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with an 8-pin power connector. System Suggestions GeForce GTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.Intel 865G comes embedded on the Pentium 4, Pentium D, Pentium Extreme Edition, Celeron, Celeron D CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel Extreme Graphics 2.
It only supports DirectX up to 7.0 so even DirectX 8/9 games aren't (hardware) supported. The performance is ridiculous and even very old games (before 2003) might require reduced settings. Today's games are, obviously, unplayable.
