For similar money, you can get much much MUCH better stuff. This is just a piece of garbage. It will do 720p/60 Youtube and Twitch, will do office work, but that's about it. Won't do 1080p very well, doesn't like games at all.

The GeForce 8400 GS is a very misleading GPU. Like the older GeForce FX 5200, this GPU comes in many different forms. Three of them to be exact. Rev. 1 comes with 16 cores and 256MB of DDR2 memory. Rev. 2 comes with 8/16 cores and 128-512MB of DDR2 or GDDR3 memory. Rev. 3 comes with 8 cores and 512MB-1GB of DDR3 memory. It is also based on the newer Tesla 2.0 architecture.

Not the best card, usable for Office stuff browsing is okay as well. Card has a fairly good driver support for it's age. Card is not suitable for modern gaming, retro games work but mostly not great. The card is pretty cheap and can be found for 3-10€.
