Day and night difference. The 9400 is extremely weak and IMO a waste of money if you actually want to upgrade. I'd recommend getting at least an 9600.

Yeah it should be good. You can't wait for a week? What are you 12? Tongue
Anyway the equivalent of the 9800 nowadays is a 250 so if you're gonna get something like it get the newer 250

On nvidia lines, the difference between low and high end cards is fill rates -- the 9400 has less than 1/5th the total fillrate of the 9800, while still having a comparable number of shaders (tho they to are clocked slower, tho not significantly so).

Some PC games will still run quite well on a 9400, especially 800x600 or lower resolutions. PCSX2, however, relies HEAVILY on fillrates and often doesn't care as much for shader power. For PCSX2, 9400 would be noticeably worse than a 7900 on all but a couple specific shader-heavy PS2 titles.

I cant congratulate you that purchase. gt240 is weaker and more expensive version of 9600gt ~~. Now NVidia have to put EOL status to 9600gt because no one will buy gt240 (if knows that fact)

Well it's still much better than that 7300 or 9400 anyway so he'll see lots of improvement :P
