In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6500 are massively better than the Nvidia Vanta 16MB.

The GeForce 6500 was released over three years more recently than the Vanta 16MB, and so the GeForce 6500 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Vanta 16MB 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 240 MB more video memory than the Vanta 16MB, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce 6500 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce 6500 has 5.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Vanta 16MB, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6500 is marginally better than the Vanta 16MB.

The Vanta 16MB has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6500 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the Vanta 16MB is 0 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6500 is 1. The GeForce 6500 having 1 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 6500 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Vanta 16MB.
