I have a Intel DG41wv mother board with Intel dual core E2200 2.20 GHz processor 4GB of DDR III Ram . 160GB of HDD and 2Gb of GT550 64bit 768 MHz core speed graphic card is installed .can I play all assassins creed series games in high graphics please reply.
For runing AC series in highest details what is your recommendation . Also I not only want to play only assassins creed series but also the latest games and I have a 450watt power supply . ( What is your advice about the GT 440 DDR 3) Thanks for the previous reply .
This link will provide you with a lot of accurate information, benchmarks and testing of the 440. On the whole it's not a bad card, but it will definitely not run the latest games at any acceptable frame rates.
The overall conclusion is that you should at least try to get the GTS 450, instead of the 440, but with a better PSU as well, your actual is not very powerful and it will not be quite enough for a more demanding setup.

You will have to bear in mind that all these are minimum requirements, you will run the games but you will miss out on some very nice looking effects, with lowered graphics.
What I would recommend, and not very expensive (in the range of $100-130) is the 5770 from ATI; I have played these games and the latest ones actually, at 1920x1080 resolution without problems (maybe lowered graphics and details a bit in BF3 and Metro 2033 which are so very demanding games). But you need to take into account the rest of my setup.
Still, in my own opinion, that would be one of the best cards for that price range, and I recommend it. I am not taking any sides here, ATI or Nvidia (I've owned both types of cards at one time or another), but I'd rather speak from own experience.
Check here some of the prices for a 5770; just so you know if you can afford one. To be honest, this card is not very expensive, and it will give you enough performance to run the latest games with more than decent frame rates.
Regarding which should you choose between GT 520 and GT 440, definitely go with the 440, although that's not a card in its prime anymore, but it's still better than the 520.
When you buy a graphics card, you'll choose it by keeping in mind what you buy it for: everyday tasks (internet, office etc), gaming, watching HD movies, basically, graphically intensive jobs. The ones in the latter category will be more expensive than the ones in the former. So do not buy an expensive card just to go online and watch videos on Youtube, or checking your email once in a while.
