In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 1700 are significantly better than the Intel Q43 Express Chipset.

The Q43 Express Chipset was released less than a year after the Quadro FX 1700, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 Quadro FX 1700 has 512 MB video memory, but the Q43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Quadro FX 1700 has 32 Shader Processing Units but the Q43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Quadro FX 1700 requires 42 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Q43 Express Chipset. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Quadro FX 1700, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Q43 Express Chipset.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel Q43 Express Chipset comes embedded on the Intel Core 2 Quad/Core 2 Duo CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel GMA X4500.
Various Intel Chipsets come with the Intel GMA X4500 but this one (and the Q45) seem to deliver the best performance. However, due to its characteristics (e.g. Shared Memory) the performance is still very limited but might be enough to play today's games at low or medium settings excluding, however, very demanding games like Metro 2033 or The Witcher II, that are probably unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
Note 1: Intel GMA X4500 does support DirectX 10 but even the most forgiving games might be unplayable due to the demand level.
The Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.
