The 240 is a bit more powerful, but it is older technology.

What is your budget? We might be able to find you something better.

out of those two the gt 240, but like Helltech said give us your full system specs and your monitors resolution and budget, then we can suggest the best bang for your buck that your system and budget can handle..

There is also a GT440 that is about 18% faster than the GT430. The GT240 is faster, but is only DirectX 10, where the 430/440 are DirectX 11.

I just don't understand why someone would want dx11 for that performance level...

do NOT buy the gt 430, it is slow and overpriced.

Wow, the GT 240's are as low as $35 after rebate on Newegg, $65 before rebate. The GT430/440 and GT 250 are all under $100. In order to get a GTS450, which is actually a decent card, you would have to go as high as $100 after rebate.

What exactly is your budget?

If you're going to watch a lot of videos in full HD: ASUS ENGT430/DI/1GD3(LP)

If you're not, or you're going to play a lot more games: MSI VN240GT-MD1G

THe Asus card is a little more robust in it's video ability, but the MSI card is definitely a better gaming card.
