8600gt vs HD4000

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi OCN,

I've just built myself a computer with the 3770k, but i'm still waiting to purchase a graphics card. I have an 8600gt from my old computer and i was wondering how it compares to the iGPU of the 3770k. I tried looking around but i couldn't find a definitive answer.

Should i install the 8600gt for the time being, or should i continue using the iGPU?


Thanks for your time!

The 8600gt would be faster more than likely. Run a few benchmarks and games and see for yourself. thumb.gif

not so sure but 3Dmark 11 scores states that the HD4000 is faster

HD 4000:

GT 8600

Thanks for the replies! Maybe I'll end up testing it myself.
