In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT are significantly better than the Intel Q43 Express Chipset.

The Q43 Express Chipset was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6800 XT, and so the Q43 Express Chipset is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6800 XT 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 GeForce 6800 XT has 256 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 GeForce 6800 XT has 12 Shader Processing Units but the Q43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

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 groundbreaking new NVIDIA GeForce 6800 graphics processing units (GPUs) and their revolutionary technologies power worlds where reality and fantasy meet; worlds in which new standards are set for visual realism and quality, performance, and video functionality. The GeForce 6800 GPUs deliver powerful, elegant graphics to drench your senses, immersing you in unparalleled worlds of visual effects for the ultimate PC experience.
