In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel G43 Express Chipset are marginally better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 450.

The Quadro NVS 450 was released over a year more recently than the G43 Express Chipset, and so the Quadro NVS 450 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the G43 Express Chipset.

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 NVS 450 has 512 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 Quadro NVS 450 has 16 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 Quadro NVS 450 requires 35 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Quadro NVS 450, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the G43 Express Chipset. The Quadro NVS 450 requires 11 Watts more than the G43 Express Chipset to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro NVS 450 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than 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.
The NVIDIA Quadro NVS 450 multi-display business graphics solution delivers reliable hardware and software for a stable business environment. Proven on leading business applications, Quadro NVS 450 is capable of driving up to four ultra high resolution displays and is designed to meet the needs of today's most demanding business user.
