I'll second this. OP, the 8400 is a terrible card. its a video playback card, not a gaming card. If you are going to game on an 8*** series card, go for the 8600GT with ddr3 ram

But the ATI 4850 is fantastic. As the quoted poster pointed out, it runs almost everything you throw at it in good quality, and costs next to nothing.
