ATI Radeon HD 4250 vs Nvidia GeForce 7300GT

  1. just installed an Asus M4A88TD. it has quite impressive (to me at least) on board graphics - ATI Radeon HD 4250 with 128MB DDR3 1333 memory.

    this is a budget-limited upgrade, so would i be better off with this graphics set up, or with my old card, an NVIDIA GeForce 7300GT? (until i get a new card)

    my main use is for 3d modelling - the on board graphics works well so far

    I suspect that this year's integrated graphics are better than a 7300GT.

    It's a low line card in the first place, and now it's five years old.

    If this is going into a box with either Vista or Windows 7, why not just run the "Windows Experience Index" test on the integrated graphics? You'll be surprised how well they'll score

    The 7300 has DDR2 at best, certainly no match for 1333 MHz system RAM.

    thanks for that - that's what i suspected.

    it's only short-term until i can get a good card. i will run that Index test
