In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the 865G and the 7025 nForce are equal.

The 7025 nForce was released over three years more recently than the 865G, and so the 7025 nForce is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 865G 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 7025 nForce 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 7025 nForce also has superior memory performance overall.

The memory bandwidth of the 865G and the GeForce 7025 nForce 630a are the same, which means the 865G and the 7025 nForce have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The 7025 nForce has 2 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 7025 nForce 630a.

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.
NVIDIA GeForce motherboard GPUs (mGPUs) make experiencing the GeForce difference more affordable than ever. Designed for both AMD and Intel platforms, GeForce motherboard GPUs support the latest graphics technologies including DirectX 10, CUDA, PhysX, PureVideo HD and Hybrid SLI.
