In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 9250 are massively better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 280.

The Quadro NVS 280 was released less than a year after the Radeon 9250, 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 Radeon 9250 has 64 MB more video memory than the Quadro NVS 280, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon 9250 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon 9250 has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro NVS 280, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon 9250 is marginally better than the Quadro NVS 280.

The Quadro NVS 280 has 1 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon 9250 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro NVS 280 is 0 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon 9250 is 1. The Radeon 9250 having 1 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon 9250 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro NVS 280.
