In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel B43 Express Chipset are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 6500.

The B43 Express Chipset was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6500, and so the B43 Express Chipset is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6500 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 6500 has 256 MB video memory, but the B43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 6500 has 4 Shader Processing Units but the B43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel B43 Express Chipset comes embedded on the Core 2 Quad/Core 2 Duo CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel GMA 4500.
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 6500 and 6200 graphics processing units (GPUs) featuring NVIDIA TurboCache technology take full advantage of the PCI Express bus to deliver the turbocharged system performance you need to play all the hottest games and applications.
