Well, they're both from nVidia, if I had to choose between the two I'd definitely go for the 8400GS, but if there was any way that I could possibly spend more than the 36 dollar list price that it has on Newegg, then I definitely would.

You can get a much better card then as those two really aren't that great, the card cabbspapp recommended is perfect.
