GeForce 9400 GT Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce 9400 GT is a middle-class GFX part of the GeForce 9000 Series released by NVIDIA in 2008.
The performance is very limited due to the architecture itself and so most demanding games are only playable at low settings while very demanding games, might be unplayable, even at the lowest settings.

To both of you, the GT520 is the better card. For you, I would recommend an upgrade if you wanted to play modern games smoothly, so if you want help with that let me know. If you don't, that's cool too :D
