Pros

better than onboard video from Intel

10 agree

can play older games at lower resolutions quite easily

8 agree

Decent for the price, but only for basic multimedia programs

8 agree

can be passively cooled quite easily

6 agree

perfect for media centres

6 agree

helps offload video decoding from the CPU

5 agree

I Played all of the Games like Graw 2, Callof Duty mod1 and 2 on high resolution

5 agree

Runs Flight Simulator X @ 30-80 Frames. So modern games aren't a problem.

4 agree

is better than the typical nForce 630/GeForce 7XXX solutions most nvidia based mobos have

3 agree

Overclocking is simple and GREATLY Improves performance.

3 agree

much better than intels

Cons

Not a good card at all if you are looking for something for today's games.

11 agree

can be outperformed very easily by competing cards that cost only a little more (ATI 4670 - $79.99)

10 agree

active cooling with such small and cheap fans leads to high volume and tonal fan noise

8 agree

probably not a worthy upgrade from onboard Nvidia or ATI graphics

5 agree

the same as previous generations - only overclocked

Launched late in August 2008, the GeForce 9400GT is the long awaited budget model based on the 9th generation of Nvidia's GeForce graphics card design. With an MSRP of $59 and years ahead of competing onboard video from the likes of Intel, the 9400GT is nothing to skoff at. Designed to display desktop resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 and makes viewing high definition content a breeze, the 9400GT can also handle light gaming on lower resolutions. While the 9400GT does offer new levels of graphics and media processing power at a new low in terms of pricing, the technology is far from bleeding edge. With the 10th generation of Nvidia cards now months into mainstream use, the 9400GT is in simply an overclocked  previous generation 8500GT.
