Graphics Bus

A graphics bus is used to translate and manage the graphical data flow between the graphics card and the computer. Most computers have at least one type of graphics bus available solely for graphics card. These buses are either an AGP slot, PCI-Express slot or standard PCI slot. Both the GeForce 7300 LE and the GeForce 8400 GS both need an available PCI-Express slot in order to be installed.

Memory

Graphics cards will usually have a certain amount of memory already installed on the card itself in order to improve system performance and capabilities of the graphics processing unit. Both the GeForce 7300 LE and the GeForce 8400 GS use DDR2 memory, but the GeForce 7300 LE has a minimum of only 128 MB of on-board memory, while the GeForce 8400 GS has 256 MB.

Low Profile

Depending on the computer case that the graphics card will be installed, profile will be one thing that needs to be taken into consideration. A compact Micro ATX case or low-profile case will require a low-profile-capable graphics card. The GeForce 7300 LE comes with a removable bracket that can be used so it conforms to the size of a low-profile case or build. The GeForce 8400 GS is not capable of being converted to a low-profile graphics card.
