In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 3400 Series are significantly better than the Intel G43 Express Chipset.

The G43 Express Chipset was released less than a year after the HD 3400, 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 HD 3400 has 256 MB video memory, but the G43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD 3400 has 40 Shader Processing Units but the G43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The G43 Express Chipset requires 24 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 3400 Series requires 65 Watts. The HD 3400 requires 41 Watts more than the G43 Express Chipset to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 3400 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the G43 Express Chipset.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel G43 Express Chipset comes embedded on the Core 2 Quad/Core 2 Duo CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel GMA X4500.
Due to its characteristics (e.g. Shared Memory) the performance is very limited but might be enough to play today's games at low settings excluding, however, very demanding games like Metro 2033 or The Witcher II, that are unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
Radeon HD 3400 Series is not a GPU but instead a combination between Radeon HD 3450 and Radeon HD 3470 whose rank is a balance between the two and that exists for System Requirements purposes only.
