As i have not really kept up with the video card scene lately, could some of you give me an answer to this question, I have been given an MSI NX8400 GS TD36e
on pci express, I presently have a 6600gt which one of these cards is the better.

Thanks in advance for your time.

It looks like the two cards have similar clocks and number of TMUs, so that their raw processing performance would be similar.

The 6600GT has a 128 bit wide path to its more highly clocked memory, so its memory bandwidth is more than twice that of the 8400GS. That probably means that the 6600GT willl have better performance at high screen resolutions or with antialiasing.

I guess that for many purposes the 8400 would be at best a slight downgrade.

Sorry that I can't be more encouraging.
