In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1300 256MB are massively better than the Intel 865G.

The Radeon X1300 256MB was released over a year more recently than the 865G, and so the Radeon X1300 256MB is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the 865G.

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 Radeon X1300 256MB 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 Radeon X1300 256MB also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon X1300 256MB has 4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 865G, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X1300 256MB is marginally better than the 865G.

The Radeon X1300 256MB 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 X1300 256MB. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Radeon X1300 256MB, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the 865G.

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.
Radeon X1300 256MB is an entry-level GPU based on the 90nm variant of the R500 architecture.
It's based on the RV515 Core and offers 4 Pixel Shaders, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on a 128-bit of standard DDR. The central unit runs at 450MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 250MHz.
Radeon X1300 is not much more powerful than R300 and R400 based Radeon X1050 GPUs and so its performance is relatively limited - even for DirectX 9 based games. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
