In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 are noticeably better than the Intel 865G.

The GeForce FX 5500 was released less than a year after the 865G, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 FX 5500 has 240 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 GeForce FX 5500 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce FX 5500 has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 865G, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce FX 5500 is marginally better than the 865G.

The GeForce FX 5500 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 GeForce FX 5500.

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 top-to-bottom family of NVIDIA GeForce FX GPUs provide both high-performance gaming for enthusiasts and best-in-class features for mainstream users. Whether you're a bleeding-edge gamer who desires the most advanced gaming technology available, or a PC user in search of the perfect combination of power, performance, and value--GeForce FX solutions deliver.
