I would have to disagree and say that the GT240 is the faster of the two.

I know this from experience and from the chart here. The GT440, despite sharing a similar name, is surprisingly slower than the GT240.

Have fun finding either of them in PCIex1 tho.

I'd agree that the GT240 is the faster of the two. Since at this level Dx11 is irrelevant, the GT240 is the better buy.

However, I'd recommend neither. The HD5570, HD5670, HD6570 and HD6670 offer more performance than those for less.

And dont worry about PCI-E x16 1.0, 2.0, 2.1 or 3.0. They are all forward and backward compatible, and the performance difference will be negligible in a budget card.

@OP why do you make so many threads about basically the same thing?

the gt 440 will be my choice which ever is faster because it supports dx 11 and its of newer tech then gt 240.

Why a GTS450?

I know for a fact that the P4 will be easily bottlenecked by a 8800GT, let alone a GTS450. So spending more than required + new PSU isn't really worth it.

Best option is to find a HD5670 GDDR5 card. Those go for around $65, $15 less than a GT440 and offer a lot more performance.
