Gts 450 ddr 3 vs gt 440 ddr 5

Hello,
as the title suggests. Please tell me which is better. I can go for only one of these two and I will not choose an ATI card. I personally want the GTS 450 DDR 3 coz its smaller and GTS 450 is obviously better than GT 440 but Since GT 440 has DDR 5 i am confused. Both cards have both variants, but GT 440 ddr 3 is non sense and GTS 450 DDR5 is a bit big and slightly costs more.

    Yes the board has a slot for it http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5GD1VM/#specifications
    Make sure your PSU can handle it!
  3. thanks man a lot :) btw: no problem for the PSU i have 400W
  4. yes, your mobo can handle.
  5. If you want a low end economy card (no such thing any more) then I suggest that you look at ATI at least they run cooler and waste less power but a gts450 will get you a lot further than any GT430/440 ever could. If you want to save a little you can roll the dice on the second hand market but not always worth and have been ripped off before.

    6850 or a gtx550ti. Power wise both cards are not complete hogs but 400w generic psu won't cut it.
