    GeForce has only 128MB vs. 256MB, but it's dedicated...so, which one is better?

    The 8400 GS is way better than an Intel IGP. Also, it doesn't steal main memory.

    If you have that amount of RAM, then the steal is not noticeable. But, I want RAM for my apps :D
    Also, the raw power of the 8400 GS is way higher than an Intel integrated GPU.
