Yikes! I know what the problem is now. The specs straight from the
vendors website show it is using 266MHz memory (532MHz effective)
which is way below most 8400GS (G98 models) which run at 400MHz
(800MHz effective).


Unfortunately an 8400GS not only can have different GPUs (G86 vs G98)
but also different frequencies for the core, memory and shaders! I
think you can increase the memory frequency using nvclock and the
coolbits interface but do so at your own risk to damaging the card.

Looks like you are already taking the correct action and just upgrading.
