The 7800 is considerably better. The 8400 is just a budget card of the 8 series. This belongs on the PC hardware forum, by the way. Be sure to take these topics there in the future.

Issue 1: This belongs in Hardware Forums.

Issue 2: I'd say the 7800 is better.

An old 5800 is faster than the new 8400 GS. There is a big difference when it comes to high-end cards and budget cards.

They number their products to give you a general idea of how powerful each card is. Just looking at this, the 7800 is weaker than the 8400 (it's 600 less).

No, you've got it wrong. That only applies provided the first digit is the same between the two cards compared. That digit signifies what series they're a part of, while the three numbers and the letters afterward dictate how powerful each of them are within that series. Each series has different high-end, mid-range, and budget cards. Budget cards never outperform the high-end cards of the previous series.

Oh, and :lol:.

The 7800 card is much better... oh, and @litewo, spreading misinformation probably isn't a good idea...
