In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel G31 Express Chipset are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 7050.

The GeForce 7050 was released less than a year after the G31 Express Chipset, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The GeForce 7050 has 128 MB video memory, but the G31 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 7050 has 2 Shader Processing Units but the G31 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The G31 Express Chipset requires 17 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 7050.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel G31 Express Chipset comes embedded on the Core 2 Quad/Core 2 Duo/Pentium Dual-Core CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel GMA 3100.
Due to its characteristics (e.g. Shared Memory) the performance is very limited but might be enough to play today's games at low settings excluding, however, very demanding games like Metro 2033 or The Witcher II, that are unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
The GeForce experience is more affordable than ever with NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series motherboard GPUs, now for Intel-based PCs. *Immersive experiences on the latest applications and games. *Enjoy Windows Aero features such as Flip 3D, taskbar preview and translucent windows for a more productive computing experience. *Support for a full range of Intel CPUs (including Core™ 2, Pentium™ and Celeron™ CPU families), DDR2-800 memory and integrated HDMI or DVI display output.
