In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 8500 Series 64MB are massively better than the Intel 865G.

The 865G was released over a year more recently than the 8500 Series, and so the 865G is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the 8500 Series.

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 8500 Series has 48 MB more video memory than the 865G, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the 8500 Series also has superior memory performance overall.

The 8500 Series has 8.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 865G, which means that the memory performance of the 8500 Series is marginally better than the 865G.

The 8500 Series has 4 Shader Processing Units but the 865G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The 865G requires 13 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon 8500 Series 64MB.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel 865G comes embedded on the Pentium 4, Pentium D, Pentium Extreme Edition, Celeron, Celeron D CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel Extreme Graphics 2.
It only supports DirectX up to 7.0 so even DirectX 8/9 games aren't (hardware) supported. The performance is ridiculous and even very old games (before 2003) might require reduced settings. Today's games are, obviously, unplayable.
The Radeon R200 is the second generation of Radeon graphics chips from ATI Technologies. The architecture features 3D acceleration based upon Microsoft Direct3D 8.0 and OpenGL 1.3, a major improvement in features and performance compared to the preceding Radeon R100 design. The GPU also includes 2D GUI acceleration, video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. 'R200' refers to the development codename of the initially released GPU of the generation. It is the basis for a variety of other succeeding products.
