What sort of games can Galaxy GeForce 8400 GS Video Card - 512MB run?

Asked by Chanicle (1 points ) April 16th, 2009

I’m gonna be getting a new card for my PC and I didn’t want to get anything too expensive (lol recession) but something that would hopefully run games like TF2 and oblivion well enough.

Not sure about that card but the first video card i ran TF2 on was a Nivida Geforce 6600 then a 8800 that i would just buy and return before 30 days until i had money saved up for my 9800GT that i use now.

Should be ok with a 8400, though i do know that Nvidia cards run by the 2nd number not the first so you might be trying a 4 series card on a newer game, check if it runs Direct X 9 or 10.

If you have a $100 ish budget, get an ATI HD4830. If your budget is lower, try to get at least a nVidia card with a 2nd number that it greater than 6. An 8600, 8800, 9600, or 9800 is Much mch better. Also, GS cards are underclocked. Make sure you get a GT.

Here are my two recommendations, a good card, and an okay card.
HD 4830 $79.99
and
9600 GSO $54.99

Both should run most modern games pretty well, but the 4830 is definitely the better of the two.
