In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT 256MB are very slightly better than the Intel G43 Express Chipset.

The G43 Express Chipset was released over a year more recently than the 7600 GT, and so the G43 Express Chipset is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the 7600 GT.

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 7600 GT 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 7600 GT has 12 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 GeForce 7600 GT 256MB requires 40 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the 7600 GT, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the G43 Express Chipset. The 7600 GT requires 16 Watts more than the G43 Express Chipset to run. The difference is not significant enough for the 7600 GT 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 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.
