    What do you mean by “better”?

    Graphic design applies to computer software and a lot more: print advertising, logo/identity creation, packaging, signage, illustration, data visualization…

    Strictly speaking, graphic design for computer software is just one of many skills required for UX design (you also need to have a solid grasp of information architecture, psychology, research methodology, evaluation techniques, interaction design, etc.).

    (There’s ongoing debate about the difference – if any – between UI design and UX design, so I won’t bring that up here.)

    I will also assume you have all the necessary training and skills to do either job at a professional level.

    Given all that, the “better” career is the one that you’re most well-suited for, the one that you’re able to actually get a job doing, and the one that makes you happy.
