Yes, but what are you using it for and whats your budget?

With the proper PSU upgrade, your system can supports pretty much any highend GPU, so the GT440 would definitely work.

Well im pretty much using it for gaming and video editing. Because it takes me a lot of time to render HD videos and im having screen lag since i started playing Battlefield BC2 and Battlefield P4F.

GT 440 is not a good gaming card.
I would choose a GT 240 DDR5 or an ATI 5670.

Unless your program supports CUDA, the GPU won't really help in editing.
What resolution are you playing at though? A stepup to even a GTS450 should be alot better than the GT440 in most cases.

The HD 5670 is a better choice without upgrading your PSU.

@Timop Well i think my video editing software supports CUDA. And the main reason why im thinking in uprading because of i can't play normally even on the lowest resolution because im using an Integrated Video Card.

@Dominaz1 Well i also thought about GT 240 DDR5 but they say that GT 440 is better.

So GT 440 is compatible with my PC. If there are more good Graphics cards out there better than GT 440 under $100?
