In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT are noticeably better than the Intel G41 Express Chipset.

The G41 Express Chipset was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6600 GT, and so the G41 Express Chipset is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6600 GT 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 6600 GT has 128 MB video memory, but the G41 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 6600 GT has 11 Shader Processing Units but the G41 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The G41 Express Chipset requires 25 Watts to run and the GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts. The GeForce 6600 GT requires 23 Watts more than the G41 Express Chipset to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 6600 GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the G41 Express Chipset.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel G41 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.
Supercharge your gaming with the power of an NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GPU. The NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GPUs deliver best-in-class performance and advanced visual effects for next-generation games. The only GPU in its class with support for Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 and with support for PCI Express, the GeForce 6600 delivers ultra-realistic effects, unmatched features, and rock-solid stability so you can play your game the way itís meant to be played.
