In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel Q43 Express Chipset are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS.

The Q43 Express Chipset was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 7600 GS, and so the Q43 Express Chipset is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 7600 GS.

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 7600 GS 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 7600 GS 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.

The GeForce 7600 GS requires 27 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Q43 Express Chipset. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GeForce 7600 GS, 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 NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series graphics processing units (GPUs) represent a significant leap forward in 3D graphics design, delivering the unparalleled horsepower and revolutionary technologies you need to tackle the latest games and video applications. The GeForce 7 Series GPUs deliver blazing frame rates and outstanding image quality so you can experience full-throttle graphics performance.
