Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce 8400 GS then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB as this is better than 685 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 4118% better performance as well.

GeForce 8400 GS Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce 8400 GS is an entry-level GFX based on the 80nm variant of the first-shader unified architecture.
It's based on the G86 Core and offers 16 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on a 64-bit memory interface of DDR2. The central unit runs at 450MHz and the memory clock operates at 400MHz. It will consume no more than 40 Watt.
It's therefore a GeForce 8500 GT, slightly lower power consumption and no SLI support.
This GPU is only suited for a 1024x768 (or less) resolution. Most of today's games will only run at low settings and extremely demanding games might not run at all. DirectX 11 based games aren't supported and its performance will decrease drastically, as the resolution increases.
Note: This GPU had two revisions which added HDMI support, DDR3 memory and different core configurations.

Your GPU is better than the Geforce 8400GS, but not by a lot. You might want to think about upgrading.

i think this card should be at least a rank 3 or 4.
this card runs Fallout 3, Mass Effect, Call of Duty 4, Left 4 Dead, Dead Space, and The Witcher smoothly on medium settings (note im refering to the one with the original PCI interface, i dont know if this is it) but its a good card and nearly out performs my GT220 even though its 90% worse :(
