Not sure if it helps at all, but the 8400gs was apparently the lowest model of G100 card so you should be either on par or better no matter what. ;)

Sorry to break this to you but your board won't support the CD / C2D generation of CPU. Your CPU is Pentium 4 generation and it's not the same as Core Duo / Core 2 Duo / Core 2 Quad generation even tho they are all socket 775.
