The 8400GS GeForce 512 MB DDR3 PCIe Graphics Card from PNY Technologies features full support of DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 for games and an HD experience. The DX10 Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) feature a powerful unified architecture that delivers an incredibly true-to-life gaming experience and power through games at record speeds.

You can charge through game maps with vividly realistic, sun-up to sun-down HDR lighting effects while steering clear of mind-blowing effects such as explosions, fire and smoke. It also allows you to crank up 16x full-screen anti-aliasing without missing a beat.

NVIDIA Unified Architecture
Fully unified shader core dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics or pixel shading operations, delivering up to 2x the gaming performance of prior generation GPUs.
GigaThread Technology
Massively multi-threaded architecture supports thousands of independent, simultaneous threads that provides extreme processing efficiency in advanced, next generation shader programs.
Full Microsoft DirectX 10 Support
DirectX 10 GPU with full Shader Model 4.0 support delivers unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects.
NVIDIA TurboCache Technology
Shares the capacity and bandwidth of dedicated video memory and dynamically available system memory for turbocharged performance and a larger total graphics memory.
NVIDIA Lumenex Engine
Delivers stunning image quality and floating point accuracy at ultra-fast frame rates.
16x Anti-Aliasing
Lightning fast, high-quality anti-aliasing at up to 16x sample rates obliterates jagged edges.
128-bit Floating Point High Dynamic Range (HDR)
Twice the precision of prior generations for incredibly realistic lighting effects with support for anti-aliasing.
NVIDIA Quantum Effects Technology
Advanced shader processors architected for physics computation enables a new level of physics effects to be simulated and rendered on the GPU while freeing the CPU to run the game engine and AI (Artificial Intelligence).
NVIDIA ForceWare Unified Driver Architecture (UDA)
Delivers compatibility, reliability and stability with the widest range of games and applications. ForceWare provides the best out-of-box experience and delivers continuous performance and feature updates over the life of NVIDIA GeForce GPUs.
OpenGL 3.1 Optimizations and Support
Ensures top-notch compatibility and performance for OpenGL applications.
NVIDIA nView Multi-Display Technology
Advanced technology provides the ultimate in viewing flexibility and control for multiple monitors.
PCI Express Support
Designed to run perfectly with the PCI Express bus architecture which doubles the bandwidth of AGP 8x to deliver over 4 GB/sec in both upstream and downstream data transfers.
Dual 400MHz RAMDACs
Blazing-fast RAMDACs support dual QXGA displays with ultra-high, ergonomic refresh rates up to 2048 x 1536 at 85 Hz.
Microsoft Windows 7 Support
Windows 7 is the next generation operating system that will mark a dramatic improvement in the way the OS takes advantage of the graphics processing unit (GPU) to provide a more compelling user experience. By taking advantage of the GPU for both graphics and computing, Windows 7 makes the PCs more visual, more interactive and also ensures the speed and responsiveness you would want.
NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology*
The combination of high-definition video decode acceleration and post-processing delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color and precise image scaling for movies and video. 1
Discrete, Programmable Video Processor
NVIDIA PureVideo is a discrete programmable processing core in NVIDIA GPUs that provides superb picture quality and ultra-smooth movies with low CPU utilization and power.
Hardware Decode Acceleration
Provides ultra-smooth playback of H.264, VC-1, WMV and MPEG-2 HD and SD movies.
Spatial-Temporal De-Interlacing
Sharpens interlaced content on progressive displays, delivering a crisp, clear picture that rivals high-end home-theater systems.
High-Quality Scaling
Enlarges lower resolution movies and videos to HDTV resolutions up to 1080i while maintaining a clear, clean image. Also provides downscaling of videos, including high-definition, while preserving image details.
Inverse Telecine (3:2 & 2:2 Pulldown Correction)
Recovers original film images from films-converted-to-video, providing accurate movie playback and superior picture quality.
Bad Edit Correction
When videos are edited after they have been converted from 24 to 25 or 30 frames, the edits can disrupt the normal 3:2 or 2:2 pull down cadence. PureVideo uses advanced processing techniques to detect poor edits, recover the original content and display perfect picture detail frame after frame for smooth, natural looking video.
Video Color Correction
NVIDIA's Color Correction Controls such as Brightness, Contrast and Gamma Correction let you compensate for the different color characteristics of various RGB monitors and TVs ensuring movies are not too dark, overly bright, or washed out, regardless of the video format or display type.
Noise Reduction
Improves movie image quality by removing unwanted artifacts.
Edge Enhancement
Sharpens movie images by providing higher contrast around lines and objects.

        Comments about PNY Technologies 8400GS GeForce 512 MB DDR3 PCIe Graphics Card:

        Upgraded an Older Intel board to Windows 7 and then found out the built in video had a Windows 7 driver that was flakey. The company achknowledge the problem, but because it was an older board was not going to bother fixing it. Put this video card in and disabled the onboard and the problems disappeared.

              when i ordered it, the label of the product said it was 1024 mb memory, mut it is actually 512

              note this when purchasing as it is HALF of it

              i did get an exchange for it though
