Does the 8300GS has it's own memory or does it use RAM ("Turbocache")?
Turbocache cards use system ram, but usually have a tiny bit of onboard ram too (16,32 or 64mb I think).
For your purposes, I'd go with the 8300. It has to be faster than the 6150, and since you don't care about graphic quality there isn't much point in getting a better separate graphics card.
